Whether you're a loner or a people type of teenager, you know that there's more to the club than the usual socializing on a weeknight (or weekend). You have seen how your mother has invested a lot of time in keeping your family together. (And no one can't live without a good cook.) You also recall your old friends, where there's mutual trust and respect between you. You couldn't imagine keeping in touch if there isn't one. These insights should help you get along with the other members of the club, and you've been dreaming about it during the application period. And then comes the twist.
You should know that the best college applicants have similar test scores, also GPAs not far from each other. They also attempt to stretch their imagination by thinking (a bit too hard) about their best traits during their participation in the school's extracurricular activities. And they won't forget varsity. You wouldn't panic if you couldn't match their achievements, not even be close to their high grades. Summer could be your golden opportunity.
You're genuinely surprised to find out that your college application essay isn't difficult as you expect. Read the instructions again. Ask the admissions tutor. Imagine yourself rewinding your past experiences.
The Fourth of July is supposed to be the best time to reflect on American history, and where Americans are heading into. The current zeitgeist should remind everyone that it might be now or never. Alas, the fourth of July happens in the middle of summer. No one wants to stay indoors (unless someone hasn't overgrown the summer reruns on television). College students rather like to keep it simple.
You have time to Google Tarquin the Proud, the last king of Rome. His tyranny led to his overthrow (and the rise of the Roman Republic), but you were more interested in the Sibylline books. You couldn't get enough of the fabled tale behind it, which would be the premise of Rick Riordan's next novel.
You might be too old to bring out your grade-school kid in you and interpret "Games of Thrones" through simple illustrations on a piece of paper, but this could be THE activity that would save you from procrastinating during the spring semester.
You're thinking of "Arabian Nights" after your imagination run wild while reading those descriptions of exotic places. You can add a brief review of Pier Paolo Paolini's graphic adaptation of the book (or so you think), even comparing it to the Italian filmmaker's version of "Canterbury Tales".
The air is as crisp as an apple, and the children are keen on picking up cones. Spring is here, and you've been curious about what the kids would do. It quite surprised you that they went back to school. You could imagine how the spring stimulated their zest for learning. Blame it on the morning sun.
You're done with the draft of your essay assignment, which didn't turn out to be difficult as you think. You're way ahead of the deadline, which is a good thing. Submitting your assignment is the farthest thing in your mind, as you need to proofread it.
Consider yourself lucky if you're being asked to write an essay on "The Scarlet Letter". Nathaniel Hawthorne's novel is an American classic, but the Me Too movement makes it more relevant than ever. Some literary critics could point out that this watershed movement shed a different light on Hester Prynne and Arthur Dimmesdale, the minister of Hester's church.
