    tip: actually read all of these emails from colleges because sometimes they throw in fee waivers at the bottom of the message!! I really wasn't all that interested in Swarthmore because I already have enough reaches. But they just waived my application fee so I may end up applying in late December

    So I'm finishing my last AP Lit book tonight! Only a couple of math problems in my packet left, two federalist paper notes along with one current event left. Will finish almost all if not most of my summer work tomorrow after work. I get my schedule tomorrow along with it being my last day of work tomorrow, go back to school on Wednesday. These past two weeks I've been stressed about getting my AP work done, but knowing that I pulled through and I am so close to finishing feels so good!

    PSA: If you have to read Wuthering Heights, or another hard to follow book (mainly due to the many characters), then go on Youtube and see if there is an audiobook. I found the audiobook for Wuthering Heights and it literally saved my life and forced me to actually read it.

    @madison2000 I've done that before too! I have a knack for falling asleep if a book is really really uninteresting. Reading along with the audio book forced me to move on instead of reading the same lines over and over because I got distracted. It also helps to play the vid on 1.5 to 2x the normal speed.

    @Hamlon That's exactly what I did. I did 1.25x because 1x was way too slow but 1.5x was way too fast.

    Audiobooks are my favorite invention in the world. We've been using them in the car since 1st grade and I always use them on walks/jogs :)
    Very fun esp if it's a good narrator. If you can afford an audible membership it's worth every penny

    My school's office is closed today, and the schooltool site for the school is also closed, which means that the schedules are probably being put in today! So I should probably have my official schedule by tomorrow (if my theory is correct)!!!
    EDIT: I read the date on the schooltool website wrong #-o It's closed on the 18th, so that's probably when I'm going to get my schedule, not today.

    Also, I'm almost done with my summer homework (due on Monday, yikes)! I have to finish reading the last required reading chapter in my Gov textbook and do a chapter sheet on it, and write the last half of my Lang assignment. I'm really getting down to the wire, but I can do it! :))

    @dietcig I got a fee waiver from Swarthmore too, and UMN Twin Cities

    Crazy to think that we will be done with all the college apps within 5 months.

    My Matriculate advisor completely abandoned me. First it was that her laptop wasn't working, second it was that she was having family problems, third it was that she hadn't gotten her schedule yet, and finally it was that her phone was having issues. She didn't even show up to most of our scheduled meetings and kept putting them off. I'm already feeling pretty overwhelmed by college apps so idek what I'm gonna do

    @neptuna Try to get another one, my mentor is pretty dedicated and she is awesome. I'm sure there are plenty of other ones just like her. Most people that have a mentor will probably say the same.

    @kassh4 Yes, it will be a relief as well.

    Got my schedule!! Not too happy that I have AP Calc AB first thing in the morning, but super happy that I have AP US Gov last because I love that teacher and she makes the class fly by! By seeing my schedule it really hit me that I start school on Wednesday.

    It was my last day of work today and I was able to finish my last book for AP Lit and all of my Calc Packet. I just really need to work hard to finish my AP Gov work, my goal is to have everything finished by Sunday.
