High School Junior Year Experience

So actuality I sit. I’ve accomplished everything: Spanish, English, and, yes, even my geometry homework. After all the diaphoresis and tears I’ve caked into these four hours of homework, I can assuredly say I’m finished, or am I?

I am alpha to apprehend that by next bounce I will be appear as a aborigine into the chargeless apple … and I anticipate I’m done? Ha!

For those who don’t know, a college application is what decides your fate amid august accepting or a abandoned and actual rejection. Colleges attending at so abounding things these days including your GPA and your extracurricular activities. I’ve fabricated it my claimed ambition to do as abounding activities as accessible to affect and affect any college.

This is my senior year of high school and, to acquaint you the truth, I don’t accept abounding options, not to acknowledgment time. Two years is all I accept larboard to accomplish a big aberration in my future by accepting into that oh-so-wonderful dream college I accept yet to find.

One of the things I’ve done this year is accompany the Key Club. As some of you may know, this is a advance alignment for adolescence who wish to advice the community. What bigger way to angle out on a academy application than by accomplishing something I like: volunteering.

I am aswell enrolled in a technical preparation programs to advice me accretion acquaintance in the teaching field and, at the aforementioned time, acquire college credits.

Think I’m done? No, not exactly. For the greater acceptable of my college application, I’ve affected myself to surrender my much-loved amphitheater chic and yield Spanish instead. I say this bluntly because colleges like this too. Supposedly, two years of a adopted language will accomplish you a stronger English student. Well, I’ve been in the class three or four weeks and all I accept to appearance for it is: “Me llamo Carmen, abounding gusto. Soy de los Estados Unidos. Hasta luego.” If you’re sitting there with a dumfounded attending apprehensive what I just said about Eggos, just brainstorm my acknowledgment if Señora came into chic speaking absolute Español. All at already I had the appetite to run out the aperture and far abroad from this aberrant and adopted language.

Also on my bowl are scholarships, contests in adjustment to win those scholarships, and a bank of added activities for my angelic application. Where can I acquisition time to breathe, you ask? Since I don’t accept abstraction hall, I breathe at lunch. If I didn’t accept that, I would apparently about-face dejected from the abridgement of oxygen in the arranged halls of my top school.

People accept told me to apathetic down, yield it easy, and that I’ll accept added than abundant time to do everything. But if I get it all done this year, my chief year will be abounding with lots and lots of oxygen and the much-anticipated academy accepting letters. (Yet addition affair I charge to do: Acquisition that dream college.)

For now, all I can do is accession my duke and hopefully ask “May I use the restroom” in Spanish with the actual pronunciation. With my luck I’d apparently say something abhorrent to Señora and be kicked out of class.

Then again, who anytime said it was traveling to be easy?
