I shouldn't live where I do. Summer ends too quickly.
Tomorrow is my first chemistry class of the year. UGH.
Let me back up and explain. While I am educated at home (who likes the h-word anyway?) there are some subjects that I simply can't teach myself/have a parent teach me. Like the sciences. I mean, I'm not exactly the kind of person to mail-order preserved rats and earthworms to dissect at home for biology. I mean, EW.
It's my senior year, which is quite a relief. I'm done with maths forever (unless, of course, I go to college) and all I see is the light at the end of the long, dark tunnel. But first I have to cross just a couple more milestones, and one of those is chemistry.
I'm taking a chemistry in a classroom outside of home, which is great. I don't have to do any grading, I don't have to create my own schedule. However, the downside is that I can't begin my school year when I want to. I must begin when the class begins.
Thus, it's only early August and the weight of an extremely difficult subject is already on my shoulders. I am dreading tomorrow.
Thank goodness for things like Write On! and novels and books and Constance and chocolate and friends and family all around to help it be a little easier.
I could ask when school starts for you, but how lame and downer would that be? Instead, I'll pick something cheerful.
What's one of your best summer memories from this year?
And I'll leave you with an extra-colorful fill-out to make up for the blah-ness of this post.
