Less than 6 hours till midnight. I feel that this will be my last day of “freedom.” I say this because the coming 12 months will be filled with stress and tough choices.
I have to take the SAT test in January, and again in May, and if I feel I can get a better score, then I’ll take the test again in September or October. I also have my AP Writing exam in May. In March, I will be [hopefully] going to an MUN conference in Amsterdam. During the summer, I hope to tour universities in New York that I am interested in, which will be a very long journey.
Once school starts in September, I’ll be a senior and I’ll have to get all my applications together and send them off to my desired universities. By spring of 2014, I’ll find out where and where not I will go to start the rest of my life.
I know that 2013 will be a challenging year for me academically. I’m nervous about taking the SAT since I suck so bad at math. Thankfully, English Critical Reading and Writing is a subject I’m great at.
Along with taking all these tests and getting everything ready to leave this country and start anew on a whole other continent, I hope to really improve as a person, from both the inside and the outside. A change of attitude and mindset has been long overdue, and I just hope I can continue becoming a better person in general.
I also would really like to put a lot of effort into developing my talents and hobbies, especially if I want to send my pieces of work in a portfolio to my desired universities. I want to write a lot more, practice fashion drawing more professionally, and try and be a better photographer (although I truly believe I’m shit at it. I just feel real bad owning an expensive camera and not using it.)
Well there. Even though I think New Year’s Resolutions are horrible and are never accomplished, I just wrote mine. I wish you all the best in the coming year, for you and your families. Hope 2013 will be great for you all!
See you in Twenty-Thirteen,
