I'm An and I am a junior. I play field hockey, write for "Vailima," and participate in many clubs including the environmental club, the psychology club, and UNICEF — and on the weekends I help serve breakfast to the local homeless population.

We're already half a month into spring term, immersed in AP prep, with senior luncheon just around the corner (!), and college admissions decisions rolling in. As much as I'm impatient for summer and college—the promise of new adventures!—I'm also wildly nostalgic, already sad at the

Elephant Seals!

Last week, the other marine biology students and I went on a field trip to Año Nuevo State Park to observe elephant seals. The day of our elephant seals field trip was a cold, wet one, but it was good weather for watching the elephant seals, Mr. Provost told us, because in warmer, sunnier weather the seals tend to laze around (something I could relate to!).
