The Homestretch

Sure, I've passed every single subject up to this point this year. Sure, that's more than I did last year. However, I still haven't actually done any real work. I've done a few neccesary homework assignemtns here and there, but there has been no truly huge thing that has demanded a lot of out of school effort during this year. Now there are two.

Because of my aforementioned (thought not in this entry) failing of US History last year, I am, of course, re-taking it this year. This means that I have to write the US History Research Paper at the same time as the paper that it is preparing us for, the Participation in Government paper. Both of these papers require a sizable amount of work out of school, and of course they have to come in tandem with one another on a completely unprepared me. I suppose the end of high school wouldn't have it any other way. This place has had my life for the last four years. Now it wants my soul.

I'm sure I'll suck it up and complete these papers on time (the US one is due May 1st, the PiG is due May 16th), because without them I simply cannot graduate. I seriously don't know if I could go on living if I didn't graduate high school on time. I don't know how I could re-take one of these classes, especially the one that I am taking for the second time already. That's just too painful to think about. I should be taking the time that I am taking to type this entry to work on those papers. If I could finish the US one by the end of this vacation, that would be ideal. Haven't started yet, though. I find that the initial jump into work mode is the hardest part. To say, okay, I'm going to stop doing all this other stuff and just work now is almost impossible for me unless my back is completely up against the wall. Unfortunately, with assignments this time consuming, your back is already implanted into the wall before you can even feel it touching, if that makes any sense.

Other than these papers, though, I can pretty much continue to coast and not have to worry about anything. My third quarter report card just came and it was the highest GPA I've had since like first quarter last year. So that is good. If nothing else, I have that, right? Oh high school, I just can't quit you.

Current Mood: sort of determined
