Hello, fabulous readers! I know the holiday season is pretty much over by now, but maybe this will come in handy later on this year. I made a lot of homemade holiday cards for my friends this season, because I … Continue reading
Well darling readers, I’m not sure if these are technically “truffles”, but they’re so delicious that I don’t even care. Chocolate covered cookie dough. Who came up with this idea? Just brilliant. Last night I was craving cookie dough, but … Continue reading
Darling readers, Last night I had a break in homework (kind of. Only because I had done it the day before, not because we had actually been assigned less homework…) and so decided to make cookies. A few of my … Continue reading
Well I know it’s a little late for the holiday season, but this is what I’m giving to a lot of my friends at school as their Christmas presents. So if you have those last few people on your list … Continue reading
Probably what bothers me the most is the constant uncertainty of your thoughts. Men always think that women are hard to understand, but really, men (well, boys. I’m not that old…) are just as hard to understand. How am I … Continue reading
Ever since I can remember, people have always asked me where I want to go college, what I want to study in college, what I want to be when I grow up. But I really don’t know. I’m always that awkward person who says “I don’t know. I mean I’m considering… but I’m still looking around.” Then I just get disappointed faces. I mean, I’m about to be senior, the CommonApp has been opened since August 1, and I still don’t know where I’m applying.
The schools within a 20 minutes of me are really great and all, but I’m ready to go out of state. I’m ready for a new life, away from everyone here. I’m ready to explore. My only obstacle is my college profile. With average test scores, I cannot compare to other students who are applying to colleges. All my friends have been stressed out over college applications, and I’ve spent my last summer days, cooped up in my room, doing nothing but eat Starbursts and talk to my friends. Meanwhile my friends, juniors even, have been visiting colleges, and figuring out what they want to do, some have even gotten accepted to college. ACCEPTED. And here I am, with a list of 3 colleges, 2 of them, my safety schools.
Part of the reason why I haven’t started is fear. I’m scared, honestly. I’m not ready to apply to colleges, not ready to receive that rejection letter from my dream school. But I’m ready for college. I just want to skip all the applications, and go to college, like many of my friends are this week. So the other night, I took some time to finalize the list of colleges I’m applying to. And now I have seven.
I miss him. I miss him so much. And I don’t even know why. I mean it was just a week and all, and I probably only met him on the second, even third day perhaps? But I still miss … Continue reading
I always have a picture of how I want things to work out. Usually my expectations are really high and mostly unrealistic. Of course, this isn’t too good, because that means when things don’t work out the way I expect … Continue reading
There are many things that bug me: girls who wear too much makeup, bad frappuccinos, cancelling at the last moment. But one thing that I really dislike is packing. I am moving in to boarding school on Saturday, and I … Continue reading
Life is a constant struggle, a constant competition. We do nothing but work hard to achieve our goals, but once we do actually achieve them, are we truly happy? I think not. Upon achieving our goals, we have nothing to … Continue reading
