It’s hard to believe that this year is finally over. It was certainly a tough year. Regardless, I ended up with a 4.0 gpa for sophomore year – I had some phenomenal professors as well as great classes; in fact, I will be a TA in the fall for one of the classes I took. But I’m glad this year is over and now I finally, finally have some downtime. Ever since the beginning of freshman fall, I’ve been constantly on the go. Tragedy hit home right after my summer classes ended and ever since then, it’s been quite a roller coaster ride. But now, as I write this blog, I’m laying out by the pool and getting lots of well-deserved sleep. I’m in California right now and it is absolutely wonderful. My internship hasn’t started yet, so I’ve been on a mini-vacation in the best place in the world!
My friends and I have mostly been just hanging around the pool and exploring different places of San Francisco. So far, we’ve gone to a rave (featuring some of my favorite artists – Tiesto and Guetta!) and to Half Moon Bay. Today marks exactly one week until The Overnight, an 18 mile walk in San Francisco from dusk to dawn that my dad and I will be doing to raise funds for the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention in honor of my mom. So far, we’ve raised about $14,000 – absolutely incredible. I plan to write a blog about the Walk afterwards as well as my other plans in store for the summer, so stay tuned!
