Happy Sunday, everyone! Thank you so much for your support on my last post. I definitely hit post when I was still in an angry mood- I should have calmed down before posting that. Hopefully you all can forgive me for being so whiney!!
Despite the little bump in the road yesterday, I have had a pretty wonderful weekend.
On Friday my AP Language teacher used my writing as the only example for our class. He gave me a PERFECT score on the mock-AP grading scale, and then told us it was the hardest prompt we have done so far. I felt really smart. Talk about a self esteem booster!
I also met with a Rep from Truman State during school on Friday. I was the only one to go to the presentation, so it was slightly awkward, but I got a lot of my questions answered! I am going to visit Truman soon. It’s a public school of about 5,000 with an academic reputation. However, it’s in a tiny town in the middle of nowhere in Missouri. So far I’ve only looked at schools in cities- I’m not so sure I love the idea of a small town school. Besides the setting, it’s practically perfect, so I have to visit and see how I like it!
2nd school I’ve looked at with Bulldogs as their mascot… Hmmm….
Right now I’m stuck when it comes to college. I really want to be involved- I’m just not sure what I want to be involved IN. I would love to run on a cross country or track team, but I would really have to improve my times for that to even be an option (Especially for D2 schools!). If I don’t join a team, I would still run and maybe get into doing half marathons, or join a competitive running club. I may want to do Marching Band but I don’t think I love it to continue it after high school. Do I become part of the school’s band program (and play oboe)?? What about sororities?? So many questions. I think I know what I want to major in- Speech Language Pathology!- but as far as extracurriculars, I’m clueless!
On Saturday, once my blood sugar came back down to normal, I took all that frustration and went for a run. I didn’t even look at my Garmin or plan where I was going to go, I just ran. I blasted my music and somehow all my favorites played on shuffle. Sunset was just starting and it was beautiful.
I ended up doing 5.5 miles. At a pretty fast pace for me by myself for that kind of distance. Needless to say, I felt 103432903% better after that. This run made me fall in love with running all over again.
Speaking of falling in love, last night I went to a friend’s house to watch her (illegal!!) copy of Frozen.
I LOVE IT. It was so cute and funny and ahhhhh.
Today is a rest day- And I need it! I’ve got tons of work to do for the upcoming leadership retreat I am a leader for!
We leave on Wednesday night and come back on Friday. I have a million and a half things to do, plan, and make, but I am really excited for it all.
Have you seen Frozen?
How did you choose what to get involved in for college?
Any advice on how to choose a school?
What are you looking forward to this week?
Enjoy the rest of your weekend! I know I will.
