I took my last AP yesterday. EVER. It was exhilirating.

I had a lot of visions of what yesterday would be like. I had imagined it for days, weeks, months, YEARS. What would it be like to finally be on that mysterious other side?

A little sniffly, actually. My body was able to hold up throughout the school year, and it finally let out at the end of yesterday. I got sick. Ewww sicky beast. BUT, it’s not all bad because I am free. I had three free periods today and I checked my email leisurely. I still have other stuff to do, loose ends to tie up, and 2 1/2 classes to attend, but I have much more time to do it. Yay! The other side is quite lovely.

Return to Routine

After having been out for two weeks, this day was especially long. The holiday break is now over, and we have jumped head first into the cold waters of the school cycle again. Finals are in a week (ugh, I know it’s awful having them after break) and teachers are not letting any time go to waste.

8:15 started bleary eyed with four poems by Emily Dickinson.
12:15 welcomed a much-needed free period.
By about 1:45 I was ready for a nap. Pathetic.

In the midst of my wallowing and my seeming dread for school to start, I do appreciate the schedule and activity involved in the school day. I feel productive , where before I felt sluggish. I feel active where I previously did nothing. There’s nothing like getting things done, something that just doesn’t happen as often during the holidays. Speaking of getting things done…need to go finish my English homework.

Hi there. Nice to meet you.

Hi. M here. This is my space, my online journey for the crazy trials of lemon bars and life.
Important things that may or may not matter to you:

1. I’m in high school-I can’t say which one, but it’s totally unique. We have a flat screen TV in the main area and we used to have a fooseball table. We have a couch in the locker room that’s icky as a New York gutter. I’ve gained at least ten pounds since I have arrived, but I guess it’s okay because so has everyone else. I wear a uniform and go to school in a beautiful building that overlooks the city. I’ve been here for way too long but I know I’ll miss it when I leave.
2. I love baking. I guess I’ve been inspired to have this blog because every other baker has one too. I am hoping to keep a journal of everything that has come out of the oven (except maybe the flan disaster of August) to remember.
3. I’m a dork. Not in a live-in-a-cave-with-no-friends type of way, but I like knitting and doing craft projects. I don’t wear mascara because I hate taking it off.
4. I ramble. Have you noticed that yet?
