I’m Excited to See My Family—I Mean, Kinda

John Contreras

I’m heading home from a summer school camp. I was there for a week to get ready for college. I want to go to UC Santa Barbara. I’m interested in education. I don’t want to be a teacher, but I want to help out kids in the community so they have a good shot at life.

I just want to get home and rest. I didn’t get much sleep at all this week. My friends and I stayed up every night. I’m excited to see my family—I mean, kinda.
