College Update

Got responses from Drexel and RIT
got 14.4K per year (5 years) from drexel and a financial statement
lets just say it would cost atleast 10K more then WPI to go there so I have decided not to consider it.

RIt got no info yet

Had two college interviews
One at Stevens (SIT) But they liked me there from what I heard from my interviewer

One at UMBC for the myherhoff scholarship weekend...After being forced to stay up till one and then having to go for an interview... was kind of torutureous. And after the 24 hours i still consider it a crazy cult LOL

"It's like throwing up rainbows!"

Haven and I had our daily adventure today. We decided to attempt to make rainbow cake.

Its like they are giant eyes

Haven is pouring some red cake batter

look at all the colors

It's a rainbow!

Cooked cake looks like Tye Dye

Note the blue stuff is homemade frosting haven dyed to be aqua just cool whip with some pudding mix.

Groovy colors

This is where the quote "It's like throwing up rainbows!" comes in to place
Not that bad for an awesome adventure and the cake besides its wacky colors tasted good as well.

deja vu

[ysa said i should post this...]

i just drove up and down the same street five times in the past hour (actually this was half an hour ago so between 4:30 and 5:30)...and not because i just needed something to do...i actually had to.

on another we had a half day for midterms. it was so pointless. we watched Save the Last Dance in gym and then I had my creative writing midterm where I had to read something then write a monologue. but tomorrow i have 3 midterms. lame.

We're learning about Romanesque art in AP Art History right that means lots of churches and illuminated manuscripts. Today we made our own pages for a book that will be a midterm study guide (so something like an illumniated art history bible? ha.). Each person had a letter or a number.
We did this activity like monks/nuns...complete with candlelight, Gregorian chants, and silence. People who talked too much got tape put over their mouths.

more admissions decisions

I got into UMaine Orono, College of Arts and Sciences. and i recieved a $40,000 scholarship over 4 years (the Presidential Scholar merit award). and an invitation to the Honors College. I like this letter of admission better than the one I got from Rutgers because it includes a short (3 sentence) handwritten note at the bottom the letter from the director of admissions. It makes you feel more like they actually care...
Ooh! And I got a window decal!

Goal of the week is to complete applications and complete application to honors college for UMBC because my parents want me to.
