I can't stand to fly...

So I am turning sixteen soon and I have gotten around to thinking, yes I don't do that very often so that is quite a landmark in my life.
Now onto my cliche statement of the day...
People say that high school is a time to find yourself, i disagree with that completely. High school is NOT a time to find yourself because most people end up revamping themselves in the summer before college. Okay I'm done with that. 

I guess there is some sort of confusion that comes when you are 16. You start to wonder what your purpose is and how you want to fulfill your goals. You are overwhelmed by the things being thrown at you and you don't understand how to take things one step at a time and yet it seems to work out anyway. 

My current state is confusion. I have no idea where I am heading. Actually I do. It's not a good direction, but I'm working on it. 

I'm getting really annoyed with standradized tests. After all, do they really have a purpose? Ok so they test your aptitude for a particular college or course but does it really matter when you grow up? Some one who went to the University of Nebraska could easily become a CEO of a big company while a Harvard grad could have absolutely nothing. 

Oy my head is spinning.

Ms. Ostrer (assistant principal) went to Salem State College (or Salem Community College? I forget what it's called) and look how successful she's been!

That said, we'll obviously be more challenged at a more prestigious school (by prestigious I mean academically strong, which I guess aren't necessarily the same thing, but oh well), so you shouldn't settle for something less than you know you can achieve.

Happy almost birthday!

Asya, where ever you go and what ever you do, you will go far. Trust me.
