    By one year I guess. Today was the first day of school. Felt so weird. Last year of me walking through the halls. Classes are pretty chill though. Overall happy with classes and teachers.

    @SD thanks I'm excited for college. Not sure where I really want to go lol. I didn't really go and visit any colleges. I mostly am planning to stay in state.

    As for classes I got a hefty load

    I never had a senior year cause I graduated when I was 16. But I did go to prom which was a big waste of time and money. I would have rather gone to an 18+ club. At least that would've been fun.

    Congrats on almost finishing high school!

    btw Greetings and Salutations all. Its been a while.
    1) got really involved in non-class activities (intramural sports, yearbook, newspaper, started philosophy club, etc); relationship drama; video games. standard high school stuff.

    2) took bio, chem, calc, al.geo., philosophy, and computer science

    3) there was a university fair where all the universities came to recruit students; lots of free stuff. also went to visit my top choice. online forms to fill out. applications to fill out. all very straight-forward.

    4) i have a relatively tame university experience. did try out drinking and clubbing with friends, but found that it wasn't really for me (i.e. didn't really have fun). most of my stories would be about cramming decently difficult courses in literally a day before my final. being emo. recovering from emo-ness. my advice is to really go out and try to meet people. everyone says that friends that meet in college they keep for life.

    Hoping it would just end. I never got to choose which HS I went to. I had to go to the same one my other brothers went to. I didn't like 3/4th of the people in my class and things weren't very good for me then.

    I took drafting 1, pre-calculus, physics, some stupid religion class (I went to a private school), a film class that I don't remember the name of which had to do with understanding themes in films (which actually later inspired me to study film making), English something, and I forgot any other class I took.

    I looked at the a few state schools that were near by, and also the Academy of Arts.

    It was rather easy since I did most of my applications online. Not that much trouble.

    Hm, one thing I can remember that was funny was that during one of my band classes, a friend of mine and this other guy would always argue all the time and one day my friend really screwed the other guy over. My friend played the base and the other guy played the sax. So while the other guy wasn't looking, my friend crumpled up a piece of paper and took soaked it with a little bit of water from his water bottle and tossed it into the sax. The guy never figured out what was wrong with his sax and it actually ended up ruining the sax which cost like $300 to repair. On top of that, it was a borrowed sax from the school. xD

    OOOOOhhhh. Then there thing which was freakin hilarious. The same friend that I was just talking about went to the bathroom after I was about to leave, and it just so happened that someone else was taking a dump. So as I was about to leave and I see my friend checking to see if anyone was inside the stalls. Right when I open the door to leave, my friend goes to where the light switch is and says "good niiiiigggghttt" and turns off the lights. So when he turned off the lights, it was pitch black in there with absolutely no light at all because there's no windows in the bathroom. So the guy is still in there, taking a dump in the dark. Minutes later while I'm in class, the guy comes back and started talking to some other people about how some jerk turned off the light in the bathroom while he was in there and had to take out his phone as a light source to find the toilet paper and to turn the light back on. xD

    I'm not disagreeing, but maybe you're college experience just sucked. Mine almost feels like a Van Wilder movie.

    Well you're in New York so naturally you should be looking at my school.

    Stony Brook and I think Binghampton have just gotten massive grants to become basically the eminent state universities in the system. Never mind that the only other school with an affiliated National Laboratory is Harvard lol, Dunno what you're trying to do with your life but i bet you can do it here


    I'd like to die with the songs I love stuck in my head. I hope to make the most of these hollow bones we become.
    I raise a toast to the the souls that sang all along. I've been gathering friends to just to make some sounds,
    before the ship goes down, I've been making amends by making the rounds before the whole world ends
