with a 3.4-3.5ish. I will cut some bitches if I worked my balls off for another semester and Carolina still decides they’re too good for me.
Last year I really wanted to go to UGA. Like, desperately. More then anything on the planet. Then i found out that it’s outrageously expensive and it was quickly taken out of the picture by the ‘rents. I then shifted my focus to UNC Chapel Hill because it’s a lot like UGA and it’s beautiful and people know how to rage there without having to be 21 or have a fake and the boy of my dreams go there. So I worked my balls off all senior year- took 3 AP classes which is a lot considering my high school didn’t really have all that many and I did extremely well in all of them. Carolina apparently didn’t think so and wait-listed me (those BASTARDS) because I cannot write a college essay and sent my application in the day before the final due date. Anyway, I worked extra extra hard and did even better than the first semester. I got through two rounds of wait-listing and at the end of the year requested a final transcript to be sent by my counselor. It was never sent and I was ultimately denied. I’m currently attending NC State due to a bit of scrambling and have worked extremely hard all semester in hopes of having a good enough GPA to apply to Carolina with reasonable hope of getting in.
This semester I’ve found that I don’t belong at State. It’s a great school- but it’s just not for me, and I wish more people could respect that. I’ve made a lot of friends here that I intend to keep, but when I walk around the campus to classes and to hang out with friends, I know I’m not supposed to be here. Part of it is because of the terrible, terrible location of my dorm and the fact that is it primarily upperclassmen with their own friends and their own lives so it’s been really difficult to make friends there. It’s not like I haven’t tried and won’t continue to do so- I go to parties when I’m invited and I joined a sorority, something I thought I’d never ever in a million years do and I really do love it- but right now I’m looking at the big picture. It has an INCREDIBLE political science program (nationally ranked much higher than the one at State), I have lots of friends there, my sorority is working on getting a charter there so I could help and potentially be a founding sister, and they have HOT coffee and jamba juice and mediterranean deli (aka orgasm in your mouth).
If I get accepted and I go there- promise not to forget the great things State has done for me.
Earlier today someone on my facebook newsfeed posted “Happy Pearl Harbor Day!” as their status. That’s like posting “Happy 9/11!” on September 11th. How ignorant and distasteful can you be? Best part, 4 people ‘liked’ it.
Honestly… people are hilarious.
i think the way to truly see the kind of person someone is, is to see how they act when they know they’re in the wrong. if they take it graciously, apologize, and own up to whatever they did- that is a real sign of character and is something to be admired. if they lash out and blame you for their mistakes, they’re not worth you’re time or energy trying to force them to see it your way or getting angry and lowering yourself to them. let them figure out their wrongs and come to you when they’re ready. second chances however, are not to be given lightly.
just something i’ve been dealing with lately. i think it’s funny how wishy washy and paranoid people can be when they’ve done something wrong and you choose to be the bigger person. just because i’m not screaming and i don’t hate you doesn’t mean i’m not upset and it doesn’t mean i’m just being passive aggressive.
if i’m putting my pride on the line to give you a second chance take it seriously, don’t throw it back in my face like i just did it to spite you.
nc state has a problem with making HOT coffee. i think it’s a scam they use to make you buy bitch drinks like lattes and whatever because those are always super hot, watery, but better than the LUKE WARM coffee i always seem to get.
get your act together port city starbucks wannabe. starbucks is a terrible company that kills all other small businesses, but at least their coffee is always burn your mouth off hot and retarded strong like it should be.
