I have recently decided to create a new category called Update…as you see here. This update thing will be the more personal side of the blog and I am going to enjoy sharing my many thoughts and things.
Today has been a great day and since it is my junior year, the questionably hardest year of high school, it is getting pretty hard to find great days like these ones. This weekend I did the basic things I don’t feel like doing (those will-eventually-have-to-get-around-to-do-it activities). Those include chores, cleaning my room, waking up too early to go to church and homework. If you think about it I actually don’t have to do any of that stuff, but if I didn’t I would be a mess (and in trouble).
Today, I was snooping around the college world and all that fun stuff and I couldn’t help but think how messed up the system can actually be. My school is filled with people with the best personalities you can ever imagine to a point where you wish you can be them or wish that they can make it to the top with just their awesomeness. At this point in America I wish we could dial down on the jealousy and jump right to the wishing the best for everyone…especially when they come from a place that resembles you. Back to it, I’m trying to say that, that guy that has a beautiful mind may have a difficult time getting into a college if his GPA is low or his SAT’s aren’t too high, which sucks. It sucks to know that he can change the world and everyone in it, but a “decent” college can’t help him get there. We can write essays and set up interviews all we want with a college, but you can’t get to know an 18-year old in five paragraphs or an hour. I don’t know what it’s like for every teenager, and their college research, but I do know that I want to share a lot in my essay, but the things I write will never be enough. I cannot share everything that has impacted my life up to this point, but I can share those key moments.
