Thanks, Lime Yay!
I have the first drafts of the essays printed up for my mom and dad to look at, so I'll be revising and proofreading them soon.
My parents impressed upon me (especially my dad) about choosing a major that would allow me to get a good job once I graduated, which is why I'm choosing Communications. They didn't want me choosing something like Theater and then being jobless for the first year or more after I graduate.
I'm taking College Writing and College Algebra at the local community college so I hopefully won't have to take them when I get into college. They also count for Math and English/Literature classes for this high school year which will be nice.
Again, thanks for the information.
