It’s been awhile since I’ve published a post about nothing in particular. Dear diary, here I come!
Currently, it is the morning of August 25, 2012. That means that in ten days (or, the morning of the September 4, I can’t do math) I’ll be back in school. Where has this summer gone?
Well, I’ve been gone a lot this summer. To reiterate what I’ve mentioned in previous posts, I spent one week studying government and politics at one university, a month studying the Humanities at another university, and about a week on a cruise. During this time I’ve made great new friends, learned tons of things, and have accomplished quite a bit, especially in developing my confidence, thoughts, and beliefs. The month away from home felt like a first taste of college – an experience that I eagerly await, and one that only comes closer.
I’ve also spent time finishing my summer assignments. I’m taking five Advanced Placement courses next year (and six exams in May), so I’ll be a busy bookish beaver. For the first few months of the school year I’ll be working on my college applications too – I cannot wait to write my essays, and please wish me luck! So far it’s been an intimidating yet enjoyable experience.
On that note, I have one week left of free time to relax and mentally prepare myself for the upcoming school year. During this week I’ll be reading constantly, so expect many book reviews in the next week and a half or so. I apologize if it seems like I’m spamming your inbox or WordPress feed – I just really want to get in as many books as I can before school starts!
Anyway, I hope everyone has had a refreshing and enlightening summer. I feel excited and nervous, yet calmer than I expected. If any of you are in high school or college, are you ready? Any advice for a rising senior? Until next post!
