Orissa in 2017

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.
