If you've read any number of my posts, you may have guessed that I enjoy keeping myself busy (as illustrated by my borderline-excessive use of the word "hectic").  When the second semester of my junior year arrived, a new state of hectic-ness accompanied it--the likes of which I had never experienced before.  As a result, blogging slipped down to the bottom of my hefty priority list and stayed submerged there for six months.  Like I mentioned in this post, I sincerely hope that a six-month break will never again be necessary.

Now, on to the fun part:  answering some unspoken questions about my hiatus and what the future holds for the blog.

Prep For A Day

Tori, where have you been?
Great question!  Quite simply, I've been studying.  Especially during the month of April, my time was monopolized by studying for AP exams.  On the off chance that I wasn't occupied by studying or some other task, I didn't feel up to doing anything more than lounging around.

What are you doing now?
This summer is certainly going to be a busy one (surprise, surprise), but I feel much more optimistic now that I have a definite break from school.  One of the most exciting developments has been my opportunity to do a modified internship at a local veterinary hospital.  I spend several hours there each Tuesday observing procedures and surgeries.  I'm also taking online precalculus as a review for an upcoming AP Calculus class.  To top it all off, I'm studying for a national health science competition that I'll be attending in a week.

What's to come?
College visits, first and foremost.  My parents and I are visiting six colleges this summer, starting with the University of Florida in a couple of weeks.  I'll be sure to share more about all of the colleges as the summer draws to a close.  Not quite as important (but just as exciting), we're heading back to Disney in a week because that is where the aforementioned health science competition takes place.  Besides that, I'm hoping to get a head start on some college and scholarship applications while I'm on break.  As far as the blog goes, I'm hoping to refine the site's design with a little help from Google (as you can see, that process is already beginning)!

Life will always be hectic;  I wouldn't have it any other way.  You know what they say:
"All we have to decide is what to do with the time that is given to us." -- J.R.R. Tolkien
As in the wise words of Tolkien, I've simply decided to fill my time with as many meaningful things as possible.

What have you been up to?



  1. Hope you have fun at Disney for the health science competition Tori!
