I know it is summer when I check the clock and it says 1 am and I'm not worried about having to wake up the next morning. It is interesting though how it can be summer but it doesn't feel different from the school year. A lot of people may not agree with that, but personally it feels the same. I still have to do work and go to the gym, it seems like school isn't fully over. Maybe it is just the thought lingering in the back of my head that I have so much work ahead of me in the next two years that keeps me feeling like the school year is never over.
I know for sure that once I land in Australia on the 18th to start my vacation, whether I like it not all of my worries will be left in China. I should be happy about that. But I am afraid that without any worries, I will not be able to push myself to complete my weekly goals assigned by teachers at Wan Yuan. I feel like while I will be having a great time without being able to find an hour out of my day every other day, the chances of me getting a good grade at the start of the next school year are slowly fading away. Kind of reminds me of an hourglass, the sand slipping away as time goes on.
If only I could be assigned a ten page essay to complete by the time I get back, or a bunch of math work sheets instead of consistently having to do little pieces of work at a time. This is not the better option, this is the easier option. I agree with the teachers and the school about the work they have given us. Even though I wish that I could just be assigned the work I stated at the beginning of the paragraph.. The work that they have given us teaches me responsibility, and it teaches me what it is like to be consistent with something through life.
