It would be an understatement if I said this junior year had actually gone absolutely terribly.

I can’t entirely go into detail, but I’m pretty sure most peers are aware that I am indeed, very depressed. In the span of only t h i s semester, I’ve gone through the biggest down spiral of my life, which I could probably also say is an understatement. In short, it’s been shit. And as someone who used to be (almost) top of the class, it depresses me further.

But it’s also motivational.

See, there’s still a part of me that wants to make it big one day. Not as in celebrity big. No, I want to be a veterinarian, go to school for a decade – the whole shebang. I want to go to college. The catch is though, I have to make an effort to get better grades, which doesn’t actually sound hardbut I say otherwise.

Senior year likely isn’t going to go great, considering how much recovery I have to go through. Going back to the routine of doing work and caring about things is going to take, well, quite a while, and there’s so much I have to do in the upcoming semester. Though, the thrill of due dates and finally getting into the groove of doing assignments… does sound great.

I do hope for one thing next year. I hope my grades actually allow me to get into UCDavis. Kind of pathetic when I think about it, hence the incredibly original title for this letter, but it’s a dream.

I want to get better. That’s all I ask for out of myself.

See you next year, me.
