Now that the time before I leave for Cambridge is measured in days rather than months or weeks, I notice how much I have left unfinished that I intended to accomplish this summer.
I still don’t speak fluent French.
I haven’t read nearly all the books I meant to explore.
The pile of unwatched movies is far greater than the few I’ve seen.
The completion of the one painting I attempted since school ended will have to wait until I return for winter break.
However, I’d say the summer has not been entirely unproductive. I got to army crawl through narrow passages in caves; I successfully navigated level 3 rapids in a kayak; I survived camping backpacking trips despite the lack of toilets, the unmanageable tents, and the startripping; and I returned to the piano for the first time in four years.
Now I’m all ready to set off for Cambridge. T- 5 days.
