This past year was filled with new challenges and exciting risks. Every year I’ve set a goal for myself for the upcoming year, and almost every year I’ve been able to accomplish it. In 2016 I set a goal for 2017 and in 2017 my goal for 2018 is to challenge myself academically and to try different experiences that will help pursue my interests.
When 2017 began, 7th grade was ending and summer was around the corner. I was thrilled and ready for the hot sun and blue waters by the time my first year of middle school was complete. Summer went by in a blur between vacations and camps, but before i knew it, i was walking into the same school from 3 months before, except I was entering my last year of middle school.
The kick off to 8th grade was shaky and nerve racking. There was more homework, more studying and more stress. All the work and commitment that I was putting in for those first couple months, was just the beginning to the thought of preparing for high school. Even though I was feeling anxious about 8th grade, I’ve been cruising through and the bumps and challenges, are what helps me become more self aware and better prepared.
I’m glad to have had a strong start to 8th grade and to finish 2017 on a high note. I’m excited to begin a new chapter in 2018 and I hope to achieve all my goals.
