Disappointments and Obstacles

"I’m sorry it has taken me so long to write again, especially since it was after SATs. But this past month I was very busy with personal and educational matters. I had final exams to study for, projects, tests, worrying about my report card, helping out in school, and on top of all that I’ve had some complications with my Grandma’s health which of course puts her and her health as my top priority. 

Any who, I received the results from my SATs, after waiting about 3 weeks, and I’m sad to say I did not do as well as I wanted to. I guess I was letting the pressure of wanting to do good and the stress of over studying get to me. I’d prefer not to state my scores, but they weren’t what I wanted, so I am definitely spending my entire summer for preparing my next SAT day. This time I’ll make sure I do extravagant, enough for me to get into the colleges of my choice, especially because I have finally decided on the 7 I want to apply to. 

Of course this year brings many difficulties but I’m going to strive to keep my grades up, in order to get into the colleges of my choice. Although it’s summer I have a lot on my plate, what with AP work, college essays, soccer, my grandma, chores, and trying to enjoy my summer with friends and family. These 2 months are going to fly by but I have to make it worth it. In the end I know I’ll be fine, because in all honesty anything worse than the work is the stress and anxiety of the outcome."
