Day 25:

The thoughts running around my head are yearning to be released, so I’ve decided to post them here.

  • It’s hard to believe how fast time passes when you don’t have anything to worry about.
  • It’s hard to believe that already 24 days have passed since I first began updating this blog daily.
  • It’s hard to believe that June is almost over.
  • It’s frustrating to realize that the plans I dreamed of during school for this summer are beginning to slip away.
  • It’s frustrating to suddenly realize that you’ve spent more time at work and at home during the first few weeks of summer then you ever imagined possible.
  • It’s frustrating to be an impatient person who is stuck between getting something he really wants and somewhat needs very soon or waiting and getting it much later.

…and finally…

  • Life is frustrating, hard to believe, and confusing at times, but there’s always light on the horizon.

I’m lost in a sea of mixed emotions about everything. I’ve basically made a solid decision about which college I plan to attend after Senior year, but I’ve yet to make a final decision on a major, or whether or not I would like to double major in two completely different topics. My SAT scores and GPA are well above average and easily meet the admission requirements. The tuition for this college is very reasonable in comparison to other schools, and I won’t end up in a massive sea of debt after I graduate. It’s the perfect distance from home; far enough away from home that I will feel independent, and close enough that I’ll be able to visit home at Christmas and during the Summer. It seems like the perfect choice…

At the same time, it seems too perfect. My SAT scores are pretty good, but I know I can do better, and I’ve already exceeded admissions requirements… That seems a little strange. I did some research, and my writing and reading scores on the SAT were higher than the middle 50% of current students (so I scored better than at least 75% of the other students who attend this school) and my math score falls in the upper area of the middle 50% (this means I probably scored better than around 60% of the school’s current students). This college is nationally recognized for having an excellent journalism program, a major I’m still considering. The dorms actually look fairly decent too– at least on the website (haha).

I guess the only thing left to do is visit the school to see if it’s right for me. Perhaps I’ll check it out when my dad and I go on our road trip…

Speaking of road trips, I’m going to Butte on Friday afternoon. Posts will be added to the site as usual, but I cannot say how the amount of content will be affected during this trip. I may have only short periods of time to write a post, or I may have long periods of downtime in which I can write long, thought-provoking posts about the curiosities of life. I guess I’ll just have to wait and see what happens…

I will definitely be tweeting while I’m in Butte though, so check the Twitter Feed on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday for updates from the Hill.

I’m going to go get some sleep now. Thanks again for reading and commenting!

P.S. I’m also going to be in Butte during Evel Knievel days! That should spice up the blog a little bit. 😉
