Writer's block: the condition of being unable to think of what to write or how to proceed with writing.We’ve all had it before, we’ve all hated it, we’ve all somehow conquered it.

High School is a great time to make friends, have fun, and learn. With graduation day quickly approaching, I am beginning to reflect on these past four years. I am glad I did many things during High School, but here are the top five things I am happiest I did.

"Life isn't about finding yourself, it's about creating yourself."
This quote extremely pertinent at this time in my life, as I find myself counting down the days until High School graduation. University will be a time for self-discovery and creation, and I am beyond ecstatic for my journey to start!
As the days until graduation decrease, so do the days until I have to leave my family. This brings a wave of sadness, especially as I will miss my mom, dad and sister terribly! I am lucky to be spending the entire summer with them: traveling, staying, joking, laughing, learning, baking, tanning, dining, and just hanging-out. By blogging about my transition into college, I hope to feel more connected to my family and close friends whom I will be moving away from.
