There are only 50 more days until I’m done with high school. It’s weird because I have been dreaming of the day I graduate since day one of senior year but now that it’s rapidly approaching, my emotions are a little all over the place. Not necessarily in a bad way, just kind of a feeling of disbelief that I’m finally done with high school! It’s funny to go back to my first few posts on the blog and remember just how nervous I was for college. But being the optimistic person I am, I knew everything would eventually figure itself out and fall into place. Unfortunately, nothing has fallen into place… yet. I didn’t get into my dream school, USC, which was to be expected but nonetheless, I can’t hide my disappointment. Now I’m debating between ASU and Chapman, but it kind all comes down to financial aid. Although I did get a great package from Chapman, I would still need to pay significantly more than I would at ASU. Either way, the plan is to still transfer to USC after my freshman year of college. It’s weird cause now when it’s 11:11, I don’t know what to wish for.. Haha enough with the cheesiness.
Anyway, last week was spring break for me so I decided to take a trip up to Flagstaff and down to Rocky Point, Mexico. Both trips were a blast and totally opposite from each other. On Monday, I was all bundled up in my snowboarding apparel and by Friday, I was stripped down to my bikini. Except for the fact that we were interrupted by people selling merchandise every couple minutes (literally), we enjoyed every second of our time at the beach, soaking up the rays, getting massages, going on banana boats, and drinking our piña coladas.
Have a great weekend everyone! 🙂
It’s been a little dreary the past few days in Arizona, but the signs of spring approaching is all around me. I wake up to birds chirping and the temperature wi
ll be in the 80s (ºF) by the weekend. I love the warm weather and can’t wait to finally buy some summery clothes. Spring also means acceptance letters. I’ll have letters awaiting me with either a “Congratulations” or “We regret to inform you..” It’s exciting to think that in less than 6 months, I’ll probably be in a new state, making new friends, and experiencing new adventures. I want more than anything to get into USC, but if I don’t get in this year, I’ll try again next year. I had homeroom at school today and basically, our advisor passed out a packet discussing graduation procedures, ceremony, end-of-year Disneyland trip, etc. Surprisingly, I got a little emotional thinking that I won’t be walking at graduation- although it’s by choice that I’m not. I don’t know, a part of me thinks that I’m missing out on a big “milestone” in my life.. but then again, high school hasn’t been a part of my life that I cared for. Once it’s May 22, I am done with high school!!!!
I got a job since my last blog post and that’s partially the reason why I haven’t blogged (the other reason being that I’m lazy). After I completed all my college applications, I told myself that I’d work out, blog more consistently, use my time efficiently, but I did the exact opposite. I stayed at home doing nothing so I got a job. The majority of my pay comes from the tips (I’m a server) and I can proudly say, I haven’t spent any of it 🙂 I’m only saving my tips and spending what I make hourly.
Anyway, just wanted to say hi (to my friends, sister, and followers) and that I’m thinking about this blog everyday.
