Annalisse's Productive Summer

Well, I tried to get Annalisse to do a guest blog, but she refused ("I don't like to write!"). I wanted her to tell you all about her productive summer, about which continues to proclaim: I got a lot done this summer! Or, I accomplished pretty much all my goals this summer!

Since she won't tell you about her productive summer, I will!
She took a Chemistry course that she needed for her major, and got a B+She saw Ed Sheeran in concertShe got her licenseShe worked 100 volunteer volunteer We visited some Rochester museumsShe took care of various doctor's appointmentsAnd, on Wednesday, she's going to Seabreeze, which she's been wanting to do all summer She packed a lot into three months.
