Update: College Week

Dear Lord I'm going to have a heart attack sometime this week because I'm finally hearing back from colleges!! Early decision/early action responses are sent and my entire class is dying. Everyone is freaking out and I can't handle it!! There have been so many good acceptances but the rejections for my friends are heartbreaking!! There are not that many people in my grade but everyone still applied early to at least 1 school!! I'M SO NERVOUS!!

Most people find out online, but there are still some schools that send letters. I hear back from 2 schools this week (1 EA, 1 ED) and my family and I legitimately can't breathe whenever we get the mail. Goodness gracious, pray that I make it through this week!

Thank goodness that this is also the last week before Christmas break. All of the seniors have decorations in our hallway and I can't wait to decorate it! Tomorrow I have a big Christmas concert at a church not too far away with my school's A Capella singing group, so I'm really excited about that. On Monday I have a Christmas party with my advisory group (a small group of students from the high school who meet with a teacher during lunch on Monday's), and Tuesday I have a Mexican Fiesta themed senior lunch. Thursday is D-Day because of college-decision-reasons, and Friday is the best day of the week! It's a free dress day, so everyone wears Christmas-y themed outfits! There's also a big assembly with the upper and middle school where all the seniors sit on our stage and our theater teacher reads "How the Grinch Stole Christmas" with our head of school. Then we sing "The 12 Days of Christmas" with the 6 grades singing different parts!! It's so much fun and I can't believe I'm going to be one of the students sitting on stage!! My senior year is already 1/2 way over!!!

Also, for the first time in forever, I'm not leaving for Jackson Hole once school gets out! Now my family and I have a couple of days to relax and then head over to ski and celebrate Christmas! What are y'all doing for Christmas Break?

I know a lot of y'all have exams this week...good luck!! I hope they're not too horrible!!

Have a great day!!

xoxo, Hannah
