9 Things in May | Monthly Wrap-Up
I'm really getting the hang of this blogging thing guys. I don't think that I've posted this many consecutive blog posts since I first created this blog, but I just want to prove to my readers and myself that I can and will prioritize this in my life because this is what I like to do. Anyway, I cannot believe that May is over. It seems like just yesterday I was stressing over which school I would attend in the fall, but I won't lie it feels good to put everything behind me and leave high school with a diploma in hand. May honestly caps off some of the busiest months in my life. March, April, and May tend to be super busy, but thankfully I managed to pull out only 9 things from this past month.
1 | College DecisionI finally decided on where I'll attend college - Washington and Lee University. Not only did this college give me the Johnson scholarship which is the equivalent of a full ride, but it also gave me an opportunity to study journalism at a liberal arts institution. All and all it was a near perfect match for me and my educational needs. My only concern is the location, but hopefully, my summer immersion will give me a better chance of seeing the beauty of living in a small college town.
2 | Honors' Day
3 | AP TestsThis year I took a whopping 6 AP tests, and if you're calling me crazy I'd agree with you. For those who have taken APs I took enough to finish all of my stickers in the AP number booklet and require more. For those wondering, I took: AP Biology, AP English Literature, AP Statistics, AP Studio Art 2D, AP US Government, and AP Computer Science Principles. Despite the heavy workload I thoroughly enjoyed my classes and was happy I didn't take the year off. Let's pray for good results because I'd really like to get out of some of my college prereqs.
4 | Senior Dinner
My grade definitely never really grew super close even with it being our senior year, but senior dinner really helped change us for the better. We actually had a great time in each other's company and had a great time. I think this was honestly the first time that we had all been together outside of school, and I feel like I speak for the class when I say that was our mistake. We definitely shouldn't have waited so late, but better late than never.
