If i dont go to queens and i DO get into hunter i'll join you though! what do you think my chances are with a 75 average and 1640 sat score? :x
Sweet! What’s wrong with your car now? :o
AHHH YES. :) When you make your decision, orientation is on the 21st of April … HMU and we can get there together! We still live in the same neighborhood so s’all good. ~
Umm … depends on what major you applied for … :o I applied for Psychology with an 1800 SAT score and 98 average, and I thought that was pretty hard. x_x
Since September, I’ve been announcing to every single person in my family, “I AM GOING TO SYRACUSE UNIVERSITY, AND I AM NOT GOING TO CALL BACK ONCE, NOR WILL I COME BACK FOR BREAK. YOU WILL ONLY SEE ME OVER THE SUMMER AND THAT IS IF I EVEN COME BACK.”
But in December, I changed my mind and wanted to stay and go to Hunter instead. (Hunter is my parents’ dream school for me, btw.) I told my friends I changed my mind, but I didn’t tell my parents. I don’t know why, but I figured I could use that little secret against them later.
In March, I got my acceptance to Hunter. Of course, like the girl that I am, I’m sitting in my room freaking out all like, “OMG OMG OMG OMG.” When my parents came home, I was like, “So uh … I got into Hunter.” My mom had the same reaction I had earlier: “OMG OMG OMG OMG!” She goes, “YOU HAVE TO GO!” I’m sitting there all cool and stuff, and then nonchalantly say, “Ehhhhhh … I DUNNNNNNNNNNNNNNNO … Kinda leaning more towards Syracuse ya know?” So of course, came the bribes. My mom says I could do whatever I want, yadayada, I’ll get more freedom, yadayada, as long as I’m not doing anything illegal, deadly, illegal, bad, etc.
So I’m like, “Can I redesign my room?” (And I’ve been wanting to paint it green since I was like, five, okay?) She hesitates and goes, “Fine. You can redesign it however you want, as long as it all works out.”
I feel bad for making my parents pay for the new furniture and paint and everything, especially since I kinda, uh, nicely blackmailed, my parents? ;P So I’m paying for everything myself out of my own pocket. I won’t ask them to help do the labor work either.
Today, I already started surveying (in architecture terms, (former architecture student here!) survey is to measure your room and calculate how much space you have,) my room, setting a budget, making a list and looking at stuff … all out of boredom in Virtual Enterprise, haha.
I’m excited! I’m finally going to get this done next month! I asked Keannu, Pratik and Rocio to come help me repaint when I do, :D It’s so boring painting alone! :( Also, if I can, I’m going to try and make Keannu assemble my new furniture too … cause he’s brawlic. >.> Hehehe, jk! ~ (…. Or am I? I’ll help!)
I guess I’m just a sneaky kid … but prob not, cause I was going to ask my parents to let me redesign my room anyways if I stayed in NYC for college. Being the Asian parents that they are, they won’t be easily convinced if they can’t use it as some form of a bribe …
So it’s a win-win situation? … C’mon, I’m staying in NYC and going to Hunter, which is what they wanted; and I’m going to Hunter and getting my room re-done, which is what I wanted!
(Btw, I did get into Syracuse University; but after scholarships and financial aid, I’m still paying 53k per year! Forget it! I’d rather get paid to go to Hunter (which I am!) than be in debt!)
