T minus 19 days, 6 hours, 24 minutes, 47 seconds.
If you don't know what "T" is, you don't know me very well. :)

The good news: I got accepted into colleges.

The bad news: I cannot afford to go to these colleges.

The good news: I have completed Gov and Econ, so I will (knock on wood) graduate from high school.

The bad news: I'm going to graduate from high school.

The good news: I'm almost done with IB.

The bad news: I still have IB tests.

The good news: Spider-Man. Star Wars. Need I say more?

The bad news: IB testing and Germans will possibily interfere with these events.

I don't know whether to be happy or sad. I think I've just settled on "stressed."

Dr. Strangelove is a good movie. So says Saje.

Had a pseudo-IB, multiple choice Physics test today. 'Twas a surprise.

(He'll... he'll see the big board!)

I've been admitted to all three of the colleges I applied to. This creates a dilemma. I'll be visiting the Cornell and Carnegie Mellon campuses later in the month. I'm hoping this will help my decision, rather than hinder it.

Have to decide by May 1st, of course.

(Are you going to let that lousy Commie punk vomit all over us like this?)

My German tutoree didn't show up today (again). I'm beginning to think I scare him. Or maybe he really, really doesn't care about or doesn't like German. Oh, well. His loss; I had every intention of actually helping him, but if he doesn't want my help, he can feel free to fail on his own.

Ben kept me company during my C-Period "vigil" today. This made things more bearable. Ben is often amusing/entertaining.

(Gentlemen! You can can't fight in here... this is War Room!)

Must go work on Civics and Econ and CAS and other things now.

(Hello? Uh, h-hello, Dimitri? Listen, I can't hear too well; do you suppose you could turn the music down just a little? *pause* Oh, that's much better. Fine, I can hear you now, Dimitri, plain and coming through fine. I'm coming through fine, too, eh? Well, then, as you say, we're both coming through fine. Well, it's good then that you're fine and I'm fine. I agree with you; it's great to be fine. *nervous laughter* Now then, Dimitri: we've always talked about the possibility of something going wrong with the bomb. *pause* The bomb, Dimitri. *pause* The hydrogen bomb. Well, what happened was... one of our base commanders... he went a little funny in the head... and he went and did a silly thing. He, well, he sent his planes to go and attack your country. Now--let me finish, Dimitri. Well, how do you think I feel about it? Why do you think I'm calling you? Just to say 'hello'? *pause* Of course I like to speak to you! Of course I like to say 'hello.' Not now, but any time, Dimitri. I'm just calling up to tell you something terrible has happened. )

Yes, kiddies, I got in to Carnegie Mellon – both CIT and Humanities and Life Sciences! Buyahhhhhhhh!

*wild gesticulation*

How the HECK did this happen? Ye gods… their packet/brochure/thinggie said that I *might* have a chance of getting into H&LS, but not CIT. BUT I GOT INTO BOTH!

[For those of you keeping score at home: Saje is 2 for 2, with 1 college remaining…]

Song of the Momentary Good: “Tubthumping” by Chumbawamba

I get knocked down, but I get up again
You ain’t never gonna keep me down!
I get knocked down, but I get up again
You ain’t never gonna keep me down!

He sings the songs that remind him of the good times
He sings the songs that remind him of the better times
Oooh, Danny boy… Danny boy…

I get knocked down, but I get up again
You ain’t never gonna keep me down!

Okay, okay. I’ve calmed. This is not a big deal (just a medium-sized one). After all, I haven’t gotten the financial aid package yet. I suspect that it will include serious suckage.

Hm. I like Spring Break, so far. Wish it was longer… that way, I could both regain my sanity by resting *and* complete my homework. Sadly, it looks like I’ll only have time for one.

I had a chocolate craving today. They don’t happen often, but they occur more frequently when there’s no edible chocolate in the house (today being a perfect example). *grumblewhine*

I archived! There is no more bloggage here. Go away!
