SST is "Life Continued"
Part of the academic requirements of SST include journaling three times a week on various topics. Below is a “free choice” journal entry written by Brook, which she agreed to let us share here.
One thing I've realized about SST is that it is basically life continued. (A different type of life, but life.) I mean I'm still me, I still have hard days and awesome days, I still "go home" after school and hang out and do my homework. I think I was expecting SST to be this wild/crazy adventure (which in some ways it is - there are 'wild' moments) - but one of the treasures about SST is actually the opposite, the chance to slow down life for a while, to have time to reflect on life and on subjects that I really care about.
