Cut & Paste: Summer in the City

For the most part, I have used my column to reminisce about the past or about places that are familiar. But I think it’s important for me to remember that I am still young and have a lot to look forward to. I decided to make this collage about my hopes and plans for the future, and more specifically, this summer. For the past three summers, I did a lot of traveling, and although it was amazing, part of me was happy to hear that this year I’ll be staying home. I will be working and interning this summer, which feels great. I want to challenge myself to explore the city that I have lived in my entire life and enjoy my summertime to its fullest. Most challenging of all will be keeping my stress about my upcoming Junior year of high school under control. That said, I feel up to the challenge.
