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!
