In Ms. Hayman’s AP Comp class we wrote personal essays and then had several coffee houses where we shared our work. We met in the library, people brought food, and we read the essays to each other. I read mine, and I got awesome feedback. There was a lot of great warmth coming from my classmates. It was just friends sharing work and complimenting each other in intellectual ways, which was really nice.
I am really ambitious about things I get excited about. I traced a map of the United States and pinpointed all the schools I wanted to go to and wrote descriptions about them once I visited. College Counseling helped me in every way possible. I found myself going back at least every other week, just to pop in and talk about big and small decisions. I couldn’t have asked for a better college search experience.
I’m thinking, as of now, I’ll study creative writing and computer science. I split my time hanging out with my friends in the CFA [Center for the Arts] and hanging out with my friends in the PC lab. There are two sides of me and both fulfill who I am. I’m trying to figure out a way to combine the two. I had the chance to be head writer on a play my sophomore year, and the writing assistant for the winter play this past year. And I’ve taken two years of computer science, Intro to CS and AP Java. The fact that Thayer has given me these opportunities has made me more confident in my abilities. I’ve dipped my foot in every nook and cranny of this place.
