Another First Day of School
I just entered my senior year of high school, and I have mixed feelings about my final year of high school. Sure, I'm excited about moving on to college, which will undoubtedly be more stimulating intellectually, and leaving for another culture for awhile is a welcome prospect. However, after this year is over, I will be leaving behind my family, as well as most (or even all) of my friends. I will also be exiting the comfort of my home for a cramped little dorm room. However, this is my last year, regardless of the pros and cons of the situation, so best to embrace the situation and not overthink the issue.
Again, this post goes against my early intentions of remaining utterly impersonal in my blog entries. I had a birthday recently, so I'm a legal adult now, which is really exciting, since I will be able to vote. More on that later.
To add something literary to this post, there's a fantastic interview with Mark Rowlands up at Cosmoetica. It's not just interesting; it's refreshing and really just fun to read, so give it a look!
