March 1, 2016 is a pretty big day in the Brown household.
I am starting a writing challenge that I have never done before. Writing, me… Writing!! And, well, my son is taking the ACT! Wisconsin is providing a day for Juniors to take the ACT and of course there is a plan for both.
Well not really. I am hoping, through this challenge, I will become a better writer, and be able to express myself in different forms other than narratives. I have no clue how that is going to work. I guess, by commenting on other blogs, gaining inspiration from my fellow writers and maybe asking my students for inspiration too. Okay, so that is somewhat of a plan…
ACT’s on the other hand-No Plan. The boy, my lovely, talented, amazingly charismatic son has taken practice tests, has reviewed vocabulary, has reviewed math formulas. For what??? To have his ACT scores sent to American University in Rome. Seriously!?!?! No Finance program, no music program, does not have an ROTC program (all the things that he said he wanted.) Is he doing this to get my blood boiling? Is he just telling me this to see my reaction? Does he really have a plan?
My amazingly talented, charismatic boy is wonderful, a joy and seriously has great potential but today on the Free ACT day, he has NO PLAN!! A little stressed, I am and will be until the results come. But until then, I guess there is only one thing to do about it. Write… Write differently, write the same, get inspiration from other bloggers and stick to my plan.
Here we go March, it is going to be a bumpy ride.
