Stupid Life

Last year, I wasn’t even thinking about college. My sister graduated and it wasn’t that big of a deal. Now all my friends are graduating tomorrow and I’m like freaking out. Not only for them, but about me too. I’m not going to be a high school soon. It’s like the nightmare of growing up is rubbing itself in my face (nasty). My mom’s not even freaked out. I am. I hate growing up. I hate that you think you never will then it’s like PSYCH! you’ve been aging this whole time. And now you gotta leave your parents house and get a real life that is not high school. This sucks! I feel like I’m a senior already. That’s probably why my grades slipped majorly this last semester.

For A Fear Of College

Thanks to my bestie, Noelle, I really got into looking for colleges, today. I started narrowing down my list of colleges to apply to awhile ago. Now I have it down to my final 7, and I’m keeping it like that. I really want to get accepted into at least 3, but realistically, I’ll be fine to get into one. Haha.

Here’s my final list:

  • USC (LA, CA)
  • Illinois Institute of Art at Chicago (Chicago, IL)
  • UCCS (Colorado Springs, CO)
  • AI of Cali – SanFran (San Fransisco, CA)
  • Un. of Chicago (Chicago, IL)
  • Columbia University (New York City, NY)
  • NYU (New York City, NY)

As you may notice, all the schools are very urban (just as I like it). I know that if I get into UCCS and another school, it’ll be really hard to decide because I’ve called Colorado home for many years now. It’s going to be hard no matter what school I choose, but leaving all my family and state would be so very hard. Still, if I get into another school, I’ll be able to pull away.

Most of these schools are art schools and all the rest have great art programs. I’m interested in double majoring in Film and English and then having a minor in either Photography or music. I’ve started looking at all the courses and programs offered, and trying to not be overwhelmed by the choices.

I know that I’ll have to work through college with a possibility of two jobs. So, I’ll be busy busy busy, but I don’t think I mind. I like being pulling in all directions and running around all day. It makes the resting periods all the better. I’ll definitely enjoy summer much more (not that I don’t already enjoy it).

College is going to be one of the biggest adventures of my life and I can’t wait to get it started. I’m totally going to miss having the easy high school life, and I’m so afraid of growing up, but everyone does it. It’s just so scary. I have to keep reminding myself there is just so much more to life than being a teenager.

Friday Fun

Yesterday day was a blast.

I woke up in a good mood, making my day pretty hopeful right away. I ate a real breakfast (meaning bagels) and headed off to school. Friday’s always rock, but this Friday was weird. Everyone was in a funk because a lot of the teachers were missing and most students were gone too for track and just plain ole ditching. We got to watch movies in three of my classes and basically hung out, chatted, and played on our phones for every single class (like most days). Even though I had a test for math, it felt like a good day all in all.

Then I spent my last three classes running around and trying to get some last minute interviews in before the due date on Tuesday (yay! I get to edit tomorrow). I got three successful interviews in and a funny one.

Then I headed home with my two good friends Meghan and Sierra, and the little girl I babysit often. We got a few good hours together until Meghan left. Then Sierra and I watched some awesome movies and some tv before we passed out.

We did a lot together today also, but I’m too busy dying my hair right now to write more. Excitement! Updates tomorrow!

Prom Post (Part 1)

I’ve been delaying this since last Saturday. I wanted to be able to have all versions, including my friend’s. Instead, I just decided to put up my version and later add hers in multiple posts (you enjoy that).

So here’s us, getting ready for prom. Took us a few hours (that’s apparently normal). Let me explain something to you. We live in a town with only one high school (and it’s also attached to the Middle and Intermediate schools…aka 5-8th grades). This means that even freshmen are invited to prom. Some are stupid enough to do dinner, pictures, after party and all the first year and ruin their Senior years. I held off last year so I could enjoy Junior prom for the first timeas a junior.

I was also the only junior in this bunch, but it was pretty fun anyways. I wouldn’t ask for a better group of friends.

Do Your Worst

I’m off to go kick some AP ass (well studying for it for at least 3 hours). I’m starting the day off with some ice cream (hey…don’t judge, no parents=whatever you want for breakfast). I will get some actual food in me at some point today (hopefully). But for now, I have to run around like a chicken with it’s head cut off while I try to rush getting ready before the bus comes. Wish me luck!
