The Final Stretch

In a couple hours, I’ll be back at Groton for the final stretch of the year, the weeks after spring long weekend through final exams. If the school year were a crew race, this would be the sprint. In 45 days, I will be a high school senior.

But until then, I have news!

  1. I am registered for a one-day PMC ride this summer! The Pan-Mass Challenge is an annual fundraiser for the Dana Farber Cancer Institute, consisting of a whole bunch of fundraising and culminating in a two-day bike ride. The full length PMC is 186 miles of cycling over two days, and it’s on my before-30 bucket list. But the fundraising commitment is massive, so I’m starting out with a short 50-miler to get my feet wet. Any and all contributions are immensely appreciated and will enter you in a raffle for a custom friendship bracelet!

  2. I want to be a journalist! It combines my passions for writing, photography, and piecing things together. When I’m not freaking out about homework (because fifth form spring), I’m basking in my excitement for my future.
  3. We won our first race on Saturday! Tomorrow, we race our lovely rival, St. Mark’s. The race part of crew season has officially begun!

I have a whole bunch of fun things lined up this summer, including a journalism workshop, a creative writing workshop, and writing my college application essays! But it’s far too soon to be thinking about that. Back to schoolwork I go!
