Halloween was fun and I definitely went trick or treating with my little sister Siobhan. We had a blast, and it was great seeing all the little princesses and pirates. Our little neighbors even
dressed up like love bugs. Surprisingly, we had a lot of candy left over. It could be due to a failing interest in Halloween, or maybe my neighborhood is not very exciting. In past year I have ventured to other neighborhoods, but in half an hour we had enough candy to last for the whole week.
As we all return from the excitement of the weekend we have all been anxious for the results of this week. Regardless of the changes we will experience in the next few weeks all of us seniors will have to continue the journey to college.
It is officially college application time, or at least it will be for most in a few months. It is a fact I cannot escape, even when I try to watch television and pretend there are no deadlines. The climax of my exciting few months will be my Gold Award project this weekend, a task
possibly even bigger than all the college paperwork. It really will be a lot of fun teaching everyone about Ireland.
Along with changing responsibilities we also have changing weather, which we cannot escape. At least we can always be assured that the school will always require a heavy jacket to keep from freezing throughout the day.
Deadlines and more paperwork is what the next few months are for everyone, unless you are distracted by the season finales for a couple of television shows. I hope we can all stay on track and that the sugar from the mountain of candy will keep me going for a while.
