These past two weeks consisted of a handful of productivity. However, it is safe to say that Spring Break was well needed, and I am ready to hop back on the ISM grind.
I spent a majority of spring break resting. Senior year has taken a real toll on me mentally, especially with the combination of ISM work and college and scholarship applications. However, I did all that I could to rest, all while maintaining an appropriate level of productivity over spring break. I made great progress on my Final Product alongside Luiz, despite having a few setbacks. We are currently struggling on scheduling interviews with professionals, especially considering how busy the individuals we are reaching out to are. However, it is safe to say that we are not discouraged. We are in the process of working out an arrangement with a professional video editing company, to potentially have them assist us in the process of the video. In the meantime, Luiz and I are both working effortlessly to work out a time for the extremely busy professionals that we want to interview to meet with us. Additionally, we are both working to do everything we can to have this big project completed by the end of the school year!
Alongside the progress on my final product, I am working with Mrs. Meinershagen to schedule as many mentor visits as we possibly can before the end of the school year. I am confident in my ability of keeping up with my school work academically, and I want to be sure that I am getting everything out of the ISM experience this year so want to schedule as many mentor visit opportunities as possible.
Aside from progress I have made in regards to ISM, the rest of my time has gone into working to make money before I leave for school, and keeping up with my scholarship applications. I am determined to finish senior year strong, and the best way that I know to do that is through continuing to work to assure a future as a successful college student.
To wrap up, the break was well needed. Spring break gave me an opportunity to rejuice after a difficult start of the school year. However, I am confident in my ability to begin working again, and I am ready to utilize the rest of the school year to have a fulfilling and eventful ISM 2 Journey.
