High school is almost done. Trying to get through the proverbial Senior Slump is hell.
You have experienced all the stress and excitement of applying, waiting and then getting notification you have been accepted. You had to decide which option you really wanted and then send your deposit. It is official, you are headed to...
Well first Summer. Fun, the end of the crazy stress and the thought of just a break before the biggest move of your life.
Who would have ever believed Summer is here. High school is over, finished and all that kid stuff done.
I worked hard. I pushed through. I made my decision for college and now party!
It is also time to keep focused and remember a big bright future is waiting. I need to get ready to leave home. I must prepare well.
When it is time to go, I will be ready, prepared and excited to walk boldly forward into college life!
