What a great title huh?
Well, I believe it's been about three days since we've arrived in Hanover, NH for our third summer at the SEAD program. It feels like we've been here for so long - everything is familiar. Unfortunately, we were delayed by a couple of hours when we arrived, but no matter: reuniting with our old SEAD friends and staff and meeting the new staff members was amazing. However, from then on, we got jumped straight into the program. The second morning was spent on a team-building challenge on a ropes course. I have to say it was pretty scary at first but I got the hang of it. Then from there, we jumped straight into an introduction of our 4 classes: SAT Prep, College App course, Public Speaking, and Essay Writing. So clearly, there will be a LOT of work to do this year at SEAD. Of course, there's fun and interesting activities too - yesterday we visited the Hood Museum, where there was a Black Womanhood exhibit, and today we got to go to Tip Top Pottery and decorate ceramics. We also got to meet our new SEAD mentors and academic coaches, and we've spent time with them as well.
Our schedule is literally PACKED with activities and classes at every hour, but I will post here as regularly as possible.
It is 11:51 PM here, and I still have work to do (essay: "How SEAD Has Impacted My Life" - shouldn't be too difficult; list of 10 colleges you want to apply to), so I will talk to all later!
