well, I had a good cry and some ice cream and talked to my best friend and my dad and was reassured that I still got into great schools, Not to mention that I'm waiting on a few more decisions. I'm not exactly a believer in fate or anything, but I do think that things end up working out! Although I sorta want to badmouth that school (don't they realize what fabulous hair they're missing out on?!), I'm going to try to stay positive.
I'm headed to my late husband's Marine Corps unit 10 year reunion. I'm so excited I can hardly stand it. Ill get to see so many old friends. I miss my Marine Corps family. And we're stick in traffic. Ahhhhh!!! I wanna see them NOW!
well...I got rejected from the school I really, really wanted to go to.
I don't know how to deal with this. I've worked so hard in high school, and even though I've gotten into some really great schools (and I'm extremely thankful of this), it just hurts so much to know I'm not good enough for this, even when I worked my hardest. I just...I don't know how to deal with this. On top of some other stuff that happened this week, I just can't deal. I don't know.
I think it really happened in order for you to end-up going where you're REALLY meant to go!
(((CE))) if its school I think it is, it's been such a tough year for admissions in general. So many incredibly hard working, smart people I know aren't getting into schools that everyone thought they'd be shoo ins for. If its a UC, there's always the option of appeal.
In terms of my college news, I got into an awesome school in Washington that I really, really like. They gave me an awesome scholarship and we're visiting it over spring break. But part of me is just so enamored with going to the east coast. I applied to four on the east coast and got into one.
That one school gave me about half as much aid as two other options on the west coast, but my mom wants me to consider it still because it really is a good school. But I don't want my family to be paying 10k more every year plus flights to another coast. It's just SO much money, and I don't want to do that to them when I have other options.
And also, I'm really scared to go so far. My uncle is only an hour and a half away from that school, but a six hour flight is very different from a two hour flight up the coast. I spent this whole time saying how I wanted to go far but I'm having second thoughts.
We're going to call the financial aid office on Monday. It's just hard. I wish my dad was working. I wish we didn't have to deal with this. At the same time, I feel ridiculous for complaining about getting into some genuinely great schools.

I am the very definition of the miserable today. I am so bloated that can not even button my large and comfy jeans. Not to mention the amount of pain I am in. I could not find my yoga pants and had to put on a large, long and poofy sweat shirt so no one could tell that it's all hanging out.
In happier news... It's Spring Break!! Area schools are out, many people are going on trips, and we are left with the locals who will not bother you unless they have to, and the regulars we are used to. This should be a pleasant week, aside from the 2 inches of rain currently dumping on us.
When I hear terms like "hipster" I think, who told cliques they could leave high school??
