do you ever just meet someone who you think you wouldn’t really get close to but then like a year later they’ve become very close and dear to you and you just kinda think, wow im really glad i met this person i don’t know what i’d do without them
Tonight was one of those nights that went well, extremely well.
did it hurt? when u fell from someones butt into the toilet water u piece of shit
definitely using this some time
My short attention span is getting more and more apparent. I feel myself losing focus, vacillating from one thing to another because no singular item can sustain my interest.
College visits are more set in stone now. Combined with MUN, these visits are going to make April one hell of a month.
Went to lunch at Applebee’s with my parents and grandparents, realized I should start watching more Duke basketball games when I saw the game broadcasted on the TVs.
Came home, finished the Duke game (and witnessed one of the most gruesome injuries I’ve ever seen on TV). So sad they’re out of the tournament.
It’s going to be hard going to school again. All of high school was an uphill trek, and now that I’m finally accepted to college, it’s just a downhill slide from here.
This daily summarizing thing is getting tough. As I progressed deeper into this March madness tumblr thing, I noticed my posts getting shallower and shorter. I guess I don’t have the urge to go to tumblr whenever a thought pops into my mind, instead I like to just dump it all at the end of the day. But even in doing that, I omit a lot of things that might’ve come up earlier.
April will be more eventful, so perhaps I’ll post more of what I do on this tumblr when it happens. MUN, college visits, slacking off in general. No more speech and debate for me though.
So concludes Day 31.
A beautiful day, marred by a sore back.
If I had known today would be such a nice day, I wouldn’t have lifted so hard yesterday. Friends went out to ultimate frisbee, but I was too sore to move in my house.
Woke at 1:30PM today… it’s so annoying how I tried staying up late so I would wake up later for college decision days so I wouldn’t have to wait much, but I kept waking up at like 9 on those days. Now I’m done, and I wake up at 1:30…
It’s so nice to be on the other end of college decisions. Just the thought or mention of school work makes me laugh, and cringe that I still have to finish it. But it’s a beautiful day and I could care less about school.
Skyped my uncle at dinner- he also calls Duke “Dyook” like my dad does. I also realized I know little to nothing about Duke’s basketball program, so perhaps I should familiarize myself with that.
This March madness tumblring is getting to me. Some days I just lack the motivation to summarize my day. Lazy Saturday I suppose?
Either way, last post tomorrow.
After lunch, I went to the gym to do mostly upper body, but then ended with deadlifts (lower back exercise). Felt very good after, though I’m probably going to be very sore in the morning.
Went to a Good Friday service for the first time at Village. I heard the CEC one was half in Chinese, and a friend invited me so I just ended up going to Village’s. Very enlightening experience, don’t know what to think of it, but I wouldn’t say it was a waste of time.
Later went to Pho cause Andrew had a craving, then went to Winco so Andrew could get snacks, then GI Joe Retaliation in theaters. Andrew and Matthew tried sneaking in, but they already bought tickets so not much badassery going on there.
Snapchat is such a unique way of communicating with, often times, complete strangers whom you are just getting to know. Better than plain text messaging, yet still more convenient and accessible than face-to-face interaction (if it isn’t possible all the time).
I guess in the end, I’m more thankful than upset or sad. Quadruple rejections today, which put my overall accept/reject ratio to about evened out. I think I’m mostly set on Duke now. My parents like it more than Rice, and they like the opportunities in that area more than in Texas anyway. Just waiting to hear from Stanford until I can solidify my choice.
In the end, this college decision process has made me all the more cognizant of what I have and haven’t managed to accomplish in high school. Others are getting into Ivy leagues, but they deserve it because of how hard I know they work. Me, on the other hand, I never really saw as deserving of an Ivy league education from the very start. I’m slacking now, and I’ve always been slacking since day 1. It has been fairly clear from the beginning, but I manage to bullshit my way through school the same way they do, salvage almost as many A’s as them, and participate in the same clubs and try to get as many leadership positions. I have no idea how hard other people worked on their essays, but I know I only worked for my commonapp essay, and the supplements I mostly shitted my way through.
Which, all in all, makes me pretty thankful that I managed to get into a decent school- and by decent I mean a school that my parents don’t disapprove of. It’s nice to quit while I’m ahead I guess.
I’m not angry that I didn’t get in- I have no right to be. Maybe it’s hindsight bias, maybe it’s denial, but in the end I only see myself at a relatively top-notch-but-not-Ivy school. Maybe I’ll have more fun, maybe I won’t. Either way it’s a crap ton of money and I’ll be spending the next 4 years of my life on the other side of the country. Decisions took forever to get here, and now that I’m in the midst of them, it seems like they’re just flying by. Can’t believe this week is almost over. What is Spring Break.
Went to food carts for dinner and had some Korean Twist. It was like 3 tacos with a mix of Korean seasoned meats and a taco structure. Quite good. Later went to Salt n Straw and just chilled and caught up with friends. Thankfully it wasn’t very cold. A good way to end the day.
Tomorrow will be the end to D-Day. It’s almost over.
Went to a dentist appointment- apparently I have to get my wisdom teeth pulled. Sigh.
Today was an extraordinarily great day. So warm that I could drive with the windows mostly down. Great weather just has a huge effect on my mood I suppose.
Came home to more college notifications, more to come tomorrow. Parents are pleased.
Talked to a new person I don’t know, didn’t turn out too bad. It’s weird thinking back to 4 or 5 years ago when I hesitated so much more, thinking about the impact of every word I did or didn’t say. Now I guess it’s way different; I don’t really care as much, which may be a good or bad thing. Who knows. Hooray for new people!
D-Day part 2 tomorrow…
Woke up, lunch, Reddit, work, gym, more Reddit.
Work today was excruciatingly slow during the first 2.5 hours, then all of a sudden the room fills up and we have literally a stack of work to do. I hate looking up from my work, because then I make eye contact with dumb kids who need help, so I usually keep my head down.
Did legs at BAC today after like a week of not doing them. I’m really gonna be feeling them tomorrow. Talked to a guy at BAC named Ben, who was doing jumping squats with the resistance machine. Interesting movement, and I’m glad he did them because now I can add those to my workout too.
Slow day… tomorrow is part 1 of D-day.
