My euphoria is put off by the fact that I still have to fill out nine college applications. Yes, NINE. Every free moment is spent answering yet another supplemental essay about why I am the best person that will ever attend college ever. Even tonight, Halloween, when I should be letting out my inner cat (I will admit, I am sadly wearing cat ears as I type, to somewhat brighten the situation), I am sitting here finishing my Early Decision essay as it is due…..in two hours.
Yup, I decided to go ED. Why? Well, part of the intrigue is that, if accepted, the full weight of college admissions will be off of my shoulders before Christmas hits. Oh, and I guess I like the school. A lot. I’m trying not to confess how much I want to be admitted….especially since ten other students from my high school are applying ED. Four have 4.0’s. And let me just tell you, the acceptance rate is not generous. Oh, if only I were a very rare minority.
So I guess the only thing to do now is wait. And complete my essays.
