I’m sitting before my computer on Interview Day, frantically making last reviews of my resume, and these questions pop up in my head. What if I’m not good enough? What if they don’t like me? Me on a daily basis, … Continue reading
Tick. Tick. Tick. Tick. Tick. Results are supposed to come out today. Whether or not you’ve been accepted. Your fingers drum rhythmically on the table top, ring finger, third finger, then pointer finger, all in a perfectly balanced melody of … Continue reading
I am a complete sucker for cute stuff. So when my friend got me these pig stickers from Japan, I flipped. Just in case you don’t know, I love pigs. They’re my favorite animal. In fact last week, we were … 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
This week I participated in a museum-type event where students make their own versions of artifacts and display them. If you remember my DIY Chinese Seal, that was for this project. I just wanted to share some pictures and what … Continue reading
I have a secret: I am obsessed with languages. I love learning about different people and the different customs they have. I love interacting with them, and I love how surprised they are when they find I can speak a … 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 am deathly afraid of needles. So when I passed out in the street (hey, I was really stressed) and woke up to find this nice firefighter taking blood from my hand and then whisking me into an ambulance with … Continue reading
I’m washing the dishes when I hear it. Blasting from the antique speakers of our desktop (they still have those?) computer is the song. Our song. I drop the plate I’m rinsing and walk over to the computer room. My … Continue reading
