BACK TO SCHOOL AND SENIOR YEAR IN HIGH SCHOOL
Last week, on Wednesday after Maclay Regional, with the summer vacation at an end, senior year in High School began. Of course, the up and coming hectic schedule is quite a challenge especially with indoors around the corner. To add to the pulse of the situation, college applications are due in the next few months. In effort to avoid too much chaos, applications to college started during the first week of September in order to help make the situation somewhat less intense!
The school day begins at 7:30 am and ends at 1:45 pm. When it is not necessary to meet with a teacher after school to study or discuss an assignment, riding and helping at the barn occurs every day except Monday and returning home to complete school work does not occur until around 6:30 pm or later. On Saturday and Sunday, arrival at the barn is usually 8:00 am and the day ends around 5:00 pm or, sometimes later. Although the schedule does not leave much time for socializing, studying in the evening with friends has become a common part of life. There are times when going to the movies or out for a meal does happen with either school or barn friends.
Being busy doing what you like to do is great! The opportunity to ride and go to school present some challenges but the rewards far exceed the pitfalls!
Talk to you soon!
