Welcome to my life.
There have been quite a lot of big changes this year. New school, new work load and new classes. Also, instead of going to a school that was five minutes away from my house, I went to one that was an hour and a half commute away. In September, I was worried that everything would be too much for me but I knew that if I wanted it enough (and I did) that I would make it work. So I did. What I didn't realize was how much more effort I had to put into my studies than middle school. This whole year I struggled to keep up my grades up (with getting home so late and having other obligations) and was always studying. Halfway through the year though, I learned how to manage and now I can gladly say I passes (more than passed) both of my regents. This year has taught me that I have to work even harder for the things I want and to focus on them. Some of my friends didn't understand that even when I was home on a Friday or Saturday night, sometimes I just wanted to relax and other times I had to study and catch up on my school work from the prior week. This year has had many ups and downs but through out everything, Ihave stayed inspired. Inspired to create, to work hard, and to be better than I was yesterday. I have learned to not say "I don't have time" because the truth is that I have the time and I chose how to spend it. When I tell people some of the things I do everyday when I come home or show them how much I study, they say "How do you have the time?". And I tell them that if I really care about it, I will make time for it. Instead of saying "I don't have time for this", replace it with "It's not a priority" and you will see a great change in what you do. This school year has changed what I prioritize and most importantly, has been another piece of the puzzle that is, well, myself.
Let's see what sophomore year has to bring.
I can't wait.
