2 more weeks!

August 13th, 2011 amguar12

Hello all,

Traditionally, I think that August is a dragging month.  Usually I am sick of summer at this point, tired of humidity and lack of a school routine.  However, this year is a whole other story.  Every day I am so busy busy busy and this summer is escaping me.  Don’t get me wrong – I would still prefer this shortened summer as opposed to last year, when I was home from the beginning of May until the end of September, when I left for England.  I can’t believe that in 2 weeks I will be moving back onto Mount Saint James for the last time.  Let the stress and excitement of senior year begin!

As much as I am excited to get back to my Holy Cross routine and be with my HC friends everyday, I am a bit anxious about transitioning back.  I am pretty pumped for my class line-up – 3 Psychology classes and one Italian class!  I am really excited to be living with my best friends in a senior apartment.  I am excited for my brother, who is coming to Holy Cross as a freshman this year.  Finally, I am excited just to soak up every moment of senior year, getting in my lasts of everything and trying to make the most of every opportunity.  I can’t believe it all starts in 2 weeks!

Besides the fun-side of senior year, I am nervous about life after graduation.  Will I apply to grad school or get a job?  Where will I live?  What will my life be like?  What do I want to do for the rest of my life?  I can’t answer any of these questions right now, and I am becoming more anxious and stressed over these issues on a daily basis.

On another transitional note, my mind is still in England.  I think I am definitely experiencing a reverse culture-shock to America.  So, at the moment my year abroad is really affecting my views on things.  I think, as a whole, it’s a good thing that I have changed and experienced new and radically different things over the course of this past year.  However, change is difficult to deal with, and I am still making sense of this past year and how it relates to my daily routine life at home.

Alrighty, before I babble too much, I hope everyone is having a nice weekend.  I have been big into the back-to-school shopping this weekend, as well as chilling with family and friends.  Two more weeks to get everything done and still have some fun – craziness!!
