Today is April First, but I luckily din’t get pranked by anyone today. I did however, get tricked into thinking that we still have plenty of time before our hike. That is a giant lie, because as of today the biggest adventure ever commences in T-Minus 17 day or so. The last few month have been full of doing homework ahead to still get credit, going to the gym, dehydrating food, and packing. However, in the last month, I have certainly felt the time crunch. I have been under some stress to get all of my ahead-of-time homework done on top of all my regular class work, dehydrate more than just one day’s worth of food, and pack my backpack with all my gear inside.
Along with doing multiple papers and presentations, I have PSATs coming up soon too, which add to my stress of completing. However, there is a relief to all this stress, my family, teachers and friends who are a tiny bit jealous of all the adventures we’re going to have and worried about me, how long we will be gone, and finishing school and such. My family has been such a great help, going to the store for me, asking how they could help and just being there for me.
The days are slowly counting down!! AHHH! A few days ago my mom looked at me and said, “I put my pack on and walked around the living room… ‘It’s getting real”. I totally agree with her. I am excited for the biggest adventure of my life, but also a tad bit worried because it’s very close and I am still dehydrating food for us to eat, so we have more variety than ramen noodles, and still working on school.
