Even though I haven’t been busy, life itself has been pretty crazy! I would say I can’t believe I’m already a senior in high school, but I’m not, because I can believe it! Don’t get me wrong, I love going to school, I love high school, I enjoy learning, meeting new people, going to sports and other school events. But on the other hand, I want to get out in the world, and do something productive. I’m tired of sitting in classrooms for eight hours, five days out of seven, and waiting around for someone to teach me something I don’t already know.
So for the question, “Am I excited to become a senior?” Yes and no.
..I decided to do an entire wardrobe change. I felt that since I’m turning 18 soon, I should be dressing more mature. Instead of just throwing on something in the morning when I’m half asleep and not even sure if whatever I’m wearing matches, I should pack my school bag, and layout the clothes I plan on wearing the night before.
..I purchased my own agenda, to keep myself organized. My school actually hands them out for free on the first day of school, but usually their too small, and I just tend give up in squeezing my homework for eight classes in a two by four inch square.
..Instead of taking a lot of Advance Placement classes, I’m only taking one, and taking more educational but fun classes, such as Astronomy, Marine Biology, Creative Writing and Writing for College!
..New classes means meeting new people, and I love doing that!
..I enjoy going to school events, and cheering on my friends.
… I’m retaking both the SAT and ACT, just to see if I could get higher scores, which means study study study!
… I need to finally decide on what I want to do later in life, and I don’t really know yet! (I was thinking elementary school math teacher?)
Even though I’m not as excited as many of my fellow classmates, I can’t wait to see what good times, and challenges senior year will bring me!
