Today is the first day in a long, long while that felt like summer.

I've been thinking about this for the past week or two, and today it really hit me. We're going to be done with high school in a few weeks' time. I can already taste the freedom.

Done; finished! This is going to sound corny, but the past four years have been a time of joy, pain, torment, confusion, realization, and self-discovery. Mostly torment though.

And now, here we are. This chapter of my life is drawing to a close. Not so long ago I was apprehensive--I was unsure if I could make it in 'the real world'. But thinking back, that's the same way I felt before high school, and I did alright.

I just realized something that I had never really put a finger on, but had always been there; I like having responsibility because of the freedom that comes with it. I was almost afraid of the transition between teenager and full-fledged adult because of the greater burdens of responsibility that adults face in day-to-day life. However, I now want the great freedom that comes with those responsibilities, and I'm ready to step across the threshold.

There's no way for me to know what's around the bend; but whatever happens, I finally feel ready to face it.

Now, I'm planning on fully enjoying the handful of responsiblity-free months that lie ahead. Peace out.

Finally, some good news!
I've been accepted to Chapman University, and been awarded a sizeable merit scholarship!

I guess they liked my application! Hopefully I'll get a chance to go down to SoCal soon.

By the by, as of last week this blog has been up and running for five years. Scary.
