i want to get my first acceptance letter already !! i submitted csu apps a week or two ago but i didn’t get anything .. it made me really anxious that a lot of people already got accepted. i’m very happy for them though :) as far as i know, only fullerton has sent out acceptance letters out. it’s not exactly my first choice (i don’t really know where i want to go), but a letter bearing good news would have made me feel slightly better. i submitted uc apps a few days ago. even though my personal statements aren’t that great, i felt relieved because i got that part over with. it’s been so tedious during app season that i’m just relieved to click the “submit” button regardless. and so i am done with california apps. there’s also that rumor that uc’s don’t even read personal statements and while i didn’t entirely pour my heart and soul into it, i did waste a lot of time and effort nailing every word down ..
i’m not to keen in staying here, but considering the costs of out-of-state tuition, i’m considering all my options because i’m afraid. ugh, the whole start anew crap is still one of my top priorities, but there’s also the whole pros and cons i have to think about. i think the biggest concern is money, because you can adapt to everything else. it’s just so expensive, even with financial aid and possible scholarships. the last two days i also submitted two out-of-state apps. i had a lot of trouble with one personal statement and i don’t think it’s good enough.
.. and i just have two more apps to do and i am done. good thing it’s due next month !
i wish I was alive during the generation of when guys threw rocks at your window, they wrote you love letters, they serenaded you, and you would get phone calls, but i'm stuck with getting poked on facebook, sharing videos on youtube, and one worded text messages.
we’re all growing up, but i can’t help but miss the good old days when we all had too much times on our hands, nothing but fun things to do, and our biggest worries is whether or not your classmates or friends will return your crayons. back when the playground is your whole world, the swing set, slide, and sandbox are places to explore .. and when the whistle blows, you run and line up for snack time or music class. running around playing tag with your friends, giggling when you get a valentine card from your crush (even though he gave it out to everyone), blowing bubbles in your milk, and crying from a scratched knee. all the while, wishing we were just a little bit older. we spent so much time wishing we were all grown up to realize that we’re skipping out on enjoying our childhood.
not ready to work but i’m excited to see some people tomorrow :) miss my buddies. but i’m so usually lazy now-a-days that it’s safe to say that i have a bad case of senioritis. not to mention that i feel old with my back hurting and everything. i got back to california on friday and the sun was shining and it feels .. like home. it’s weird, but it does. i went to my room to see that my whiteboard had fallen off the wall like there’s an earthquake or something :( i need to fix that .. when i’m not lazy.
i didn’t go black friday shopping at all this year. the only thing i bought on friday was starbucks :X took the train to the airport at 9, and they had to run my laptop through the security machine twice because i look suspicious ;) just kidding because they wanted to separate the laptop from the bag. and i hate taking off my shoes and putting it back on sighs. but it’s good that they are taking every precaution. i admit i was itsy bitsy paranoid that i was going to get robbed once i get to LAX. haha, because i’m carrying a shitload of things and so darn vulnerable. but like dawy said, it’s all good :P on the plane, a family of four was sitting behind me. and the little white girl was so cute !! :) she kept asking every few minutes whether we’re landing soon though. and her little brother drooled on himself everywhere but he kept smiling. i sat next to this lady, and he kept poking us both and pretending it wasn’t him. so adorable :) he had the prettiest eyes. white kids are so cute. actually, all kids are so cute. i went home and slept a bit after. gave my sister her souvenirs and she made me a welcome home card.
that night, i worked on apps. submitted one out of state one, and since my printer is being anal the last few weeks, i asked a friend to help me print it and walked to her house to pick it up :) i also dropped off her souvenir, hehe. on saturday, i just chilled and watch movies. i’m planning to send my uc apps today, and other out of state ones tomorrow. i got my haircut today but it’s only a teeny bit shorter and just cut my bangs. wrote on the back of homecoming pictures with my sharpies till i got sick of the smell, and now going to start on homework :) i think i have a test tomorrow .. really now, teachers ?! -_-
