What are you doing this summer?
“The first five weeks of the summer I spent studying for the MCAT, the admission exam I have to take to apply to medical school next year. In the beginning I did content review, and then closer to the date of the exam I just took as many practice tests as I could. I’m glad it’s over! Following the test, I visited my aunt, uncle and my two adorable cousins in Seattle. We spent the Fourth of July weekend in Leavenworth, Wash., an absolute gorgeous mountainside city where we had an awesome time hiking and white water rafting. For the last six weeks of the summer, I plan to stay at home in Auburn, Ala., and do some shadowing at the local hospital and volunteer with our county Red Cross, an activity I did here all throughout high school. I also want to make one or two short films and try to submit them to a couple of film festivals, as filmmaking is one of my hobbies. I’m also going to hang out with some friends and rest in preparation for the upcoming school year!”
