My senior years.I can't believe It is almost over. Now when I look back, it was stressful, but exciting, the ball, graduation, and then of course, college.
I started applying for my college months before Christmas. My parents told me it would be smart if I set up interviews and tours. But I wasn't motivated, I wanted to go to colleger but I didn't want to deal with the stress.
As the days flew by, my applications lay on my desk just as I had left them three months before. ""You are wasting valuable time/my parents complained.

Not my first choice, but…I had been accepted. Maybe if I get my grades up,
I can choose another school...

Be open to new ideas. Have you ever thought people could live on the moon? Maybe you’ll find another earth in space in the future. 39
Protect yourself. Has a thief ever taken money from one of your classmates? Don’t let it happen to you. If you have to go back home late, you should let your parents know.
