Last day of school!


Today is my last day of high school, for like, the rest of my life!

I'm soooooo glad, because my motivation for school has completely died a long time ago. Now all I have to look forward to the next couple months is summer break. I should get some work done, like a responsible author, right?


I know how I am, and I won't get anything done! Of course I'll write a little everyday, but I want to make sure I enjoy my last break before college. Holy crap, I'm going to college-that's crazy! Well, guess I'm going to continue to do nothing throughout this last day. (They're always so pointless)

Who-hooooo graduation!!!!!!

School Pride Scholarship

Southeastern Community College: it's not a overwhelming university, or a facility crawling with thousands and thousands of students. No, it's far from that. Universities of that magnitude offer many opportunities; however, they lack many key elements: closeness, unity and a place to call home.

As soon as one finishes high school, they are thrown into the real world, standing on their own two feet. Some students will scurry on off to a university, diving deep into the waters of life. Those schools do not offer the comfort SCC provides. With the smaller classrooms, students are able to create bonds with others. Not only can they create connections with other students, but also their professors. The atmosphere brings a warmth inside.

That is the atmosphere that I crave for my next step of learning. College is a huge jump for anyone, a jump that shouldn't be taken lightly, which is why I picked SCC as my next learning destination. While looking at other universities, I saw the enormous student size and how that number overpowers the professors. Coming from a smaller school, that statistic was one I wasn't used to and one I didn't want to become a part of. SCC offered me something I desired: smaller class sizes, quality education and most importantly the opportunity to form relationships with my professors. Being able to talk to my professors one-on-one after class was something I wanted throughout my college career; although that one-on-one time is attainable within bigger universities, that time is far more scarce than it would be in a community college.

There is nothing wrong with four-year Universities; however, what follows with that category of schooling is something undesirable in my eyes, which includes cost, size and the sense of insignificance within the classroom. My desired college doesn't have any of those downsides. Instead, SCC is full of unity. The classmates become life-long friends and the teachers will always be held as mentors, no matter what twist and turns life goes through Those factors alone are the reasons why I am proud to be a future SCC Blackhawk.

School is almost over!!!

Ugh, I've been so busy -___-

My birthday wasn't too long ago, and that took up some time. Also school has been my top priority. But that's because I'm a Senior, and I'm almost done with high school-yeah!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm so glad, because I'm done with high school and ready to move on. Hopefully college isn't hard or anything, and hopefully it doesn't take up too much of my time. I need it to write, and I'm afraid with it, plus work, writing won't be happening so much :(

Oh well, we'll see! Just wanted to update my blog a little, figured it needed some more loveXD haha!

Okay... off to do some more school work -__-
