Going to college in New York can be so suffocating.
All I want to do is go to work at my dream job, go to nice parks, go out to dinner at nice restaurants, try weird Chipotle-flavored drinks at bars, eat truffle fries, eat truffle grilled cheese sandwiches, date and fail, date and succeed, have coffee on the balcony of my apartment facing downtown, kiss underneath the Washington Square Park arch, kiss at the special park, venture to Staten Island, have dinner and drinks on my apartment rooftop, have lazy Sunday mornings in bed in Williamsburg/DUMBO with my cat and my significant other, use the shit out of Über, move to Midtown for a bit, move out of Midtown, photograph in Central Park, go to the Met exhibits’ opening days, and all the fun stuff.
But here I am, writing a paper on Gordon Matta-Clark.
What the fuck even is this month? I have God knows how many term papers due, two midterms today alone, a show going up this week, financial aid and summer funding apps due, regular work and school shit, and somehow I’m supposed to squeeze in both 420 and Bacchanal. LIFE.
lesbianadvances asked: Do you have any advice for getting into college (specifically BU)?
There are a lot of different factors that contribute to college acceptance. Overall I’d say to just make sure you keep your GPA up in high school and have well-rounded extra curriculars. And obviously SAT/ACT are important… Put some thought into your essays too, especially if you don’t have an interview.
