October Favorites

The month of October was filled with so many things to do  including school field trips, the first senior event of the year, and playing in the heavy rain  but I couldn’t help but worry about one thing: college. If you live in the United States, you know that the college application process is exasperating for students. Even I myself ran around like a stressed out maniac for the majority of the month. My goal for this coming month is to…relax. I learned that some things are out of our control; sometimes the best thing we can do is wait. I’m looking forward to November and the nearing Thanksgiving festivities!
