April Showers

Today is the first day of April, which means that I only have two months to get my life together, salvage what's left of my GPA, apply for summer programs, and take about seven different types of standardized tests. Needless to say, I am worried sick.

I also happen to be literally sick. I blame it on the weather after swim practice yesterday, but there's not much I can do about that. From what I hear, school was pretty interesting today. There was a pop quiz in AP Environmental Science that turned out to be an April Fool's joke, and there was a substitute teacher for math. English went to an assembly to prepare for choosing senior year classes instead of doing synthesis essays. In general, there was no homework, and on top of everything, it was a short day because it's Tuesday.

Despite missing out on all that fun, I haven't had to do much either today except for reading and sleeping, but I should be studying more for math. The calculus final begins tomorrow, and is in total a span of four days over the next two weeks. I am scared to death about this final, because I need to raise my grade to at least a B in this class, because at this point, I've pretty much accepted that I won't be able to earn an A.

Again, thinking about all this makes me worry for my future, and combined with the rain, everything looks grey and dreary right now. Luckily, I am armed with homemade pear juice, homemade cookies, music, youtube, and the limitless resources of the internet (which I use mostly to read books). I could be studying. I could be writing an essay. But it feels good to be able to put everything aside and just relax for a while.
