This is my second year at St. Andrew's. I am originally from New York, so you can imagine how different it is from the suburban life I lived before. I chose this school because I wanted to meet new people, experience a better arts program, and have better teachers. Soooo many people gave me crap for this. It was only acceptable to go to Deerfield, maybe someplace like Hotchkiss, too.
Many people, when I tell them I am from Westchester County, do not believe I live there. As I grow older, I feel more and more uncomfortable at home.
I am a traveler, so getting out of home was a good thing for me, even if it wasn't a good choice on my part for my family. My mother is tortured by the fact she cannot play a pivotal role in my education.
My life is always busy. It’s all over the place, doing everything. I do a lot of activities to occupy myself. I am one of those people who cannot get bored. I have tons of schoolwork and tons of fun. I always need some moments to reflect on the life I am living. What am I really doing with myself? Why am I like this?
So... last night was the big semi-formal dance. It is Sadie Hawkins and all the girls make a humongous deal out of it. I ended up going stag and having a better time than last year.
I have a lot more work than usual, and my mom is still upset that I have "made the choice to come to boarding school." We shall see how that tension unwinds
