      It's been a long time since I made a journal. I move in to Muhlenberg in a week. I'm pretty sure I got all my dorm shopping done, now I just have to pack it up. Friends are starting to leave, and it's kinda weird not to see people you've seen almost every day.

      I don't know how often I'll post new journals, but I check around here several times a day, and plan to continue doing so. Anyone who watches me, say so and I'll watch you.

    • LAN PARTY!!!

      10 years ago

      Samobot5

      Last night/this morning we had the best LAN party ever. Near constant gaming from 4 in the afternoon to 8:30 in the morning. It was weird watching the sunrise while playing Halo 2.

      I think this might be somewhat of a last hurrah for us, since people are going to start leaving for college in a few weeks.

    • The End is Near!

      I'm almost finished with my Senior year of High School. I haven't had classes since May 11th, we watched the video interviews we did in 3rd grade, we watched the slide show recapping everything we've done ever, and tonight (thursday) was prom and this morning (12am-4) was post-prom. Prom was goddamn amazing, post-prom not so much. An hour and a half of a hypnotist gets old, especially after you see one in school a month before.

      Graduation rehearsals are coming up, with graduation on the 10th.

      And then it's summer, which as of yet, is jobless. Not that I'm complaining, but a little extra spending money would be nice for next year.

    • Decision Time

      I've narrowed my college choices down to Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA and Franklin and Marshall College in Lancaster, PA.

      Anyone who is going to or went to either of these schools, make yourselves known!

    • Been a while

      Remember what I said before about senior year being really easy?

      Everything has changed. And by everything I mean English and AP Gov.
      As soon as we finish one major project, we're given another. Just for shits.

      And my Gov class now has a wiki (though it's more like a forum) that I'm supposed to post my opinions in. I foresee a lot of tl;dr's ahead.

      But I also just got a shit ton of new paintball stuff, so that makes me happy

    • Good News!

      Samobot5

      As a by-product of conducting my Eagle Scout Project as a benefit to my Congresswoman, I now have two (2) tickets to the Inauguration!

      Getting to DC isn't a problem, trains run all morning. Getting out is a problem, because I'd really like to not miss the next day of school, because mid-terms start Friday, and next week is all review.

    • After Careful Consideration,

      10 years ago

      Samobot5

      And by consideration I mean watching Episode 1 Season 11 of Top Gear, I want a Ferrari F430 Scuderia.

      I have one college application left, and so far I've gotten in to Penn State Main Campus and Drexel University.

      After turning 18 nearly a month ago, I've done the following:
      Registered to Vote
      Registered for the draft

      Still to do:
      Credit history check

      Matters complicated by my bank:
      Credit Card-They want $15000 annual income, which is unrealistic for an 18 year old full time student
      Changing account to my name-2 ways to do this. One party (not me) can die (not exactly a viable option), or I can close out the account and open a new one. Catch is, the account number I have now is really easy to memorize.

      I'm driving up to Boston (Natick, actually) to see my cousins for Christmas this year. First time driving out of the state of PA. I intend to go fast.

      In other news:
      Jacob (ocheapjob) came back to the site for the first time in 2 years to distract him from an essay about sonnets (I did mine). I'm in the terminal planning stages of building my next computer. I need a power supply and a final check on all components, then it's order time. Christmas break is a real good time to be building a computer.

    • I should seriously write more journals

      10 years ago

      Samobot5

      Since last I left you, I went to see The Who in concert, the Phillies won the World Series, I skipped school (along with the other 500 of 600 kids in my school) to go to the Phillies Parade, had my Eagle Scout Court of Honor, and went paintballing (again).


      The College Application process is nearly over! I've submitted 5 of 7 applications. Now I just have to make sure my AP US History teacher turned in his recommendation so the guidance office can send out 4 applications. I just now realize that's a lot on one guy. I was going to check today, but the lady who handles my apps decided today was a nice day to take off. I'm told she does that a lot.

      The first marking period for school is over, which is essentially half of what counts for senior year. I managed to pull off the B- in English, which is a miracle, considering the teacher's skewed view of the capabilities of 17-18 kids.

      BTW, I turned 18 Sunday. Now I have a list of things to do.
      1. Credit Check-Need to make sure I'm the only person playing me
      2. Credit Card-Internet purchases and less cash Ahoy!
      3. Register for the draft-It's the law and I need college financial aid
      4. Register to vote-Only 11.5 months before the next election!
      5. Change my bank accounts to my name
      6. Open an account with ING Direct-I want 2.75% interest as opposed to my current .25

      It's been exactly one month since I made the journal where I said it had been exactly one month since I made the last journal. Something about the 21st of the month makes me want to write journals I guess. School is picking up. And by school I mean English. British Literature. Other than that not much to report. Working on finishing the college applications. Joy!

    • Sweet Jesus!

      10 years ago

      Samobot5

      It's been a month (exactly, mind you) since my last journal!

      School's really picking up. I have most of my academic classes before lunch, so I can pretty much veg through AP Euro and band after lunch. I like AP Government & Politics and physics, and I'm glad I went with honors calc instead of AP calc.

      All in all, the workload is much less than this time last year, which is good, cause Senior year should be easy.

      My friends and I are trying to start a paintball club at school, but we're running into "liability" issues, ie ZOMG kids sh00ting at each other!!!!1!!

      The college application process is something to behold. Who knew there could be so much paperwork?!
      The top of my list is Muhlenberg College in Allentown, PA, then a tie between Lafayette and Franklin and Marshall, and Lehigh is in there somewhere. I've looked at GW, Georgetown, and American, and I didn't like the uber-urbanness of GW, and since I only took 1 SAT Subject test the likelihood that Georgetown would even look at my application is slim, and I didn't like it enough to take 2 more tests just to apply. So American pretty much rounds out my top 5.

      My mom made me apply to Penn State, which I guess is my fallback school. Just think, if I go there, I get to be near all the assholes from high school I was so happy to see leave! Now to be fair, not all of them are assholes (the ones who aren't know who they are), but the overwhelming majority are. And that, in a nutshell, is why it's my fallback.

      Extra note: The Common App makes things so much easier. A single form for all the schools I want to apply to, with various short supplements, alumni relations, etc.
