For the past month I’ve been promising myself that I’d start blogging again (well let’s be honest… I never really blogged for NSLI-Y…)But life’s been going full speed and I’ve been having a hard time putting my thoughts into written words. I’m leaving. I’ve been accepted as a Davis scholar and I am leaving. For so long I’ve talked about wanting to escape Tucson and my small little fishpond, but now that it’s going to happen- I’m not sure how I feel. Happy- that I’ll have so many new experiences, and terrified- Leaving home for two years at the ripe old age of 16… I still really don’t know how to sum up UWC into a pretty little paragraph, so here’s what I have to say. I am the recipient of a full scholarship to study at a boarding school in New Mexico and complete the IB Diploma, while surrounded by students from all over the world. For more information on this aammaazziinngg program here is a link to the official UWC website (https://www.uwc.org/about/missions-values). Currently I’m just trying to stay present in school while early onset senioritis kicks in and trying not to think too far ahead. Second Years seem to say that participating in group chats and all of that before you go, can negatively affect your experience. Not doing this is harder than it seems, since I really do want to learn about my soon-to-be co-years.
Trying not to die out of enthusiasm. Moving to New Mexico. Living Life to The Fullest.
