The fact that my last day of high school is May 15 blows me away. I have less than one month of my grade school career before I move on to bigger and better things. Just a few measly weeks of school are all that separate me from the start of the rest of my life. I am on that home stretch.
It is Monday April 22nd and I am currently sitting in a coffee shop with my dad. At 8:49 am I am sipping away at a Spicy Chai Latte and am eating a little arugula salad (yes, it is that good). I have just received an email from CU Boulder that I am now able to apply for housing. Holy balls, this is getting real.
I have been reluctant to admit that I fallen to senioritis, but I sure have. As I think about summer and horse shows, I cannot help but try just a little less hard on my homework and put less effort into studying. My senioritis may not be major, but my willingness to be productive and efficient in school has gone out the window.
On the bright side, it’s not like I was bound to be Valedictorian anyways. As sad as it is, I would be Valedictorian but my school’s rules state that you must attend all 4 years in order to be eligible; I transferred in from the local public high school between my sophomore and junior years.
My first AP test is two weeks from tomorrow and I am nervous as heck… but also not at all at the same time. This year I only decided to take the AP Spanish Language and Culture and AP Calculus BC exams. I was not confident that I would pass AP English Literature or AP US Government, so I opted out on those tests. The spanish test makes me nervous. It is long, complex, and consists of oral, written, listening, and speaking tests. Calculus should be a blast. I love calc and math in general so much. I got a 4 on AP Calculus AB last year and am striving for a 5. That exam is May 14 which means my second to last day of school… I need to keep myself motivated enough for 3 more weeks.
All in all, I can’t believe I literally am on the final 3 week home stretch of high school. This is just the beginning of the rest of my life; and I cannot wait to see what God has in store.
