Less than 50 days until classes start. Less than 50 days until I officially start college. Up until May 23, my life goal was to graduate high school and get into college, a college far away from Los Alamos and New Mexico. That’s happened.
Now I’m going to college at Ithaca College in Ithaca, N.Y. Ever since sometime in elementary school, I’ve wanted to leave Los Alamos and see the world.
I don’t really know what exactly is going to happen next in my life. I’ve recovered from the stress and chaos of junior and senior years of high school: Taking SATs, ACT, searching the Internet and college guide books to create a list of schools, narrowing down the list of schools and trips to look at campuses. Junior year and the first quarter of senior year were a blur of schoolwork, extracurricular activities, a social life and occasionally those few precious hours of sleep. Then finally during that second and part of third quarters of senior year the application process began. It wasn’t until after the “submit” button was hit on the applications in mid-January that the stress finally began to melt away a little bit.
