It’s Summer Vacations Baby!

May 10, 2015 Jennifer's Thoughts 14

Hello awesome people of the internet!

I ended my Senior year of High School last Wednesday, and it still feels so surreal.  I’ve caught myself thinking that I have some school work to do, but I don’t. I even started to slightly panic yesterday with the thought that I probably had forgotten to hand in something, but I know I didn’t because I would have panicked way earlier.

It feels weird to have reached this milestone. I remember being in kindergarten, maybe first grade, talking and thinking about graduating from High School and then leaving home to college, live my life how I wanted and be free. To not worry, to work as whatever I wanted (at the moment it was a doctor), how it seemed soooo far away!

Yet, here I am, doing scholarship sign ups, with a college orientation for a summer program next Thursday, and still home following orders from both my parents and my annoying older sister. Yeah, not exactly as I hoped. I have at least four more years of studying, of being home, of still not being quite a complete adult yet. Though instead of wanting to be an adult, I wish I could be super little again to have less responsibilities, but I’d miss being conscious of my surroundings, thinking for myself, and read the awesome books I can read now. But we can’t turn back time, just move forward.

And that’s how life works. I’m about to start a new chapter in my life, and I’m excited and scared at the same time. I can’t wait to be surrounded by people like me and so different at once, to study freaking English!  Another good thing is that I’ll be with Marianne in the same institution again! So that means book lending and maybe videos for the blog, still thinking of all the possibilities. We could rule over the world next August too, who knows.

While in summer vacations, you might start to see more of me around the internet, replying to comments, doing reviews and tours, discussions, maybe a giveaway, and going around different blogs. This summer, other than college preparations and tons of readings, I want to dedicate more time to blogging. Blogging has become such a great part of my life and I have missed it so hard this school year, I can’t wait to discuss stuff with you guys.

So, now it’s your turn. How was your Senior graduation experience? Are you in college? Working? About to start the wonderful jungle of High School as a Freshmen or Sophomore? What about Prom? I’m going to mine but nothing like in the Teen Movies haha. Let me know in the comments down below!

  • I’ve been working for the past 7 years, it’s been a long time since I graduated from uni! I look at university back then, and it was the funnest part of my life, even though there were exams and everything to look out for. Now that I’m well and truly an adult, I must say – it’s not all fun and games! Enjoy it while it lasts 😉 Can’t wait to see what you and Marianne come up with.

      That’s part of my fear though, that I enjoy it too much and it goes by super fast, but I guess that’s normal.

  • I hope that you enjoy your vacation, and that your college stuff goes well! I miss being younger and starting out at university. I’m doing a second degree now (10 years after I last graduated) and it’s not the same; if anything it’s harder work lol being an adult sure has its advantages, but sometimes I wish it didn’t come with such responsibility!

      My dad was doing the same some years ago so I know how hard it can be, but you can do it! And ugh responsibilities… Don’t mention those to me yet… lol

  • Exciting! I can imagine your anxiety over the next few months before starting a new chapter in your life. 🙂 And yay! for summer holidays. You’ll have more time to read. Lol.

    Have a great week!

      I have already read more books half the month of May than I have in a whole month since I started senior year lol They keep me distracted from the stress and excitement of college. I hope you had a great week as well!

    Congratulations on your graduation! That’s amazing. I have already graduated from college, and I’m currently in graduate school – I will be graduating from there this coming December. It’s so strange to graduate, no matter what your age, but it’s also very exciting.


    • jmmbookworm

      Graduations sure are strange and oddly exciting all rolled up. And much success on your remaining time in graduate school, and congrats! 🙂

    I know what you mean! I keep thinking I have to go to class tomorrow but nope. Totally freaking about college, though.

    • jmmbookworm

      I keep catching myself thinking about school work and scold myself lol

  • Benish

    Congratulations on your graduation ! 🙂 Sounds like an exciting phase for you, I have yet to graduate from college yet. I have about one more semester to go before I’m done xD <3 Benish | Feminist Reflections

      Thank you! And wooo you can do it! That’s such a big accomplishment, congrats! 🙂

  • Karen

    Congratulations!!! I graduated long, long ago but I still occasionally have the same nightmare that I didn’t pass my finals and didn’t graduated. I wake up freaked out every time. lol

      Oh that must be horrible! The thought of being an adult and worrying about school work years old amuses me yet freaks me out haha
