Finally, it is Spring Break! Freedom!
Well, not exactly. I have enough homework to do over my week off to keep me occupied for a few days of nothing but work. I'm just really glad I'm not going anywhere on vacation, else I would be spazzing out right now.
However, it is such a relief to be able to sleep late and save my (nearly nonexistent) sanity. By the time I got to double period Physics at the end of today, I didn't care a fig about light refraction. I fear I missed the entire lesson while doodling on my do-now worksheet. At least they were good doodles! But ask me now, and I cannot recall a single academic thing that happened in that class today. I guess I'm screwed over come our next test.
Now on to application forms... Due to my score of 2380 on the SATs, my dad is now saying I should go to Harvard and pushing me to do one of their summer programs. The courses don't actually look too bad (e.g. Perspectives on Islam: Religion, History, and Culture; Word Origins: English Etymology; and Global Energy and Environmental Politics). I could even do a short session and take yet more classes. The downside is the long application, which requires two recommendations, three free-response questions, a graded essay, and pages of forms. Why so much for a summer course? I don't know. Either way, it's time to buckle down and get everything filled out. Oh joy.
