Senior Year has been up and down and all-around. Far away my most difficult classes are AP Physics, AP Calculus, and Engineering. And I’m adding AP English IV 2nd semester. I’ve already applied to four different colleges, but with the exception of the state Tech school, my odds of getting in are slim. I’ve run into a lot of shortcomings that began at the end of my sophomore year, and now I have to make up for it in such a demanding scenario that it’s impossible between ADHD, chronic anxiety, and a host of other family problems. Despite finally getting a 30 on the ACT, I have no idea what my grades are or will be until I get the report card. (Hopefully, straight Bs with As in World Geography and History Of Religion.) I don’t know what my SAT II scores are. As a matter of fact, I don’t have much a shot at most of the colleges I’m applying to. But I’ve been determined to leave the Deep South for college ever since I was five. I wish there were no penalties for late work for Seniors because the combination of other problems and stress make it impossible to know what’s coming.
