I’m writing a personal blog to capture this family’s journey toward college: the courses, the exams, the books, guidance from counselors and family (some of them counselors, too), endless advice found online (especially from the college consultants), the visits, and the applications.
This is not an advice column; clearly, your mileage will vary. Rather this is what we did, what we saw, what we laughed about, and what I’ve read (and asked others in the house to read) along the way.
We’ll be doing this three times for our home-grown Mod Squad (let’s call ’em Pete, Julie and Linc). I hope writing about it helps advance the learning curve. And I agree with Joan Didion, “I write entirely to find out what I’m thinking, what I’m looking at, what I see and what it means.”
