To Infinity and Beyond

I have grown much since I first started this blog. My junior year was a time when I needed to kick things into high gear, and so I joined many clubs, tried my skill in a few sports, and tackled many AP classes. In addition to these, I undertook the task of writing this blog, for I wanted to share my experiences and even some challenges I faced along the way. It has been quite a journey and I am glad to have shared it with you. However, I must now write this one final blog—a bittersweet moment.

During my junior year, my life was as hectic as it is now, if not more. Preparing for the ACT while juggling sports and classes can take a toll on a student. However, I found ways to survive and sometimes thrive under these conditions. I was glad to impart to you these little tips and tricks that helped me tremendously, for I do not want anyone to submit to this stress and stop trying—a thought that, I admit, has crossed my mind multiple times. Now we are down to the last stretch, so keep working towards your goals and make your senior year your best.

Giving you tips in order to study for the ACT was a large part of this blog. Hopefully, you have followed some of them and they improved your score. Keep these studying habits and take your challenges one step at a time, and before you know it you will have achieved your goal. Although helping you was my primary aim, giving advice and writing this blog has helped me as well. To give you the most beneficial advice, I had to reevaluate my methods. This meticulous process has produced the finely refined techniques that I use and impart to you to study, relieve stress, juggle the workload, and prepare for college.

Now, I am halfway done with my senior year. Nearing the end of the first semester, there are still final exams to take and applications to finish. I have not yet made my decision to what college I will enroll in; for that I am still waiting for all the decisions to arrive. However, I am greatly looking forward to college. I cannot wait to enjoy the freedom and responsibility that I will hold. When I do receive the rest of the decisions, I will be sure to pick the right one. Hopefully, you will be accepted into your college and pick the best fit for you!

Now, I end my final blog with a wish that you do well in all your endeavors. Keep your drive going and you shall succeed. It has been an honor to write for you, and if you have taken at least one of my pieces of advice into account then I am grateful. Thank you!
