i think i did just cry a little
I can’t be happy for all that’s gone right when some other things feel so mindbogglingly unjust to me that I want to cry. Never before have I been more conflicted with “thank you” and “fuck you” in my life.
trying not to laugh while driving by ivan's mom
While she’s on the phone with Ivan, whom we just dropped off on the hill by the opposite corner of the tennis courts where she assumes her son has been playing tennis for the past 2 hours when in reality he was downtown with Wei Anna and Sophia getting Curry Up Now and visiting Ari at Coldstone. Also, managing to get ice cream on the exterior of Ms. Wei’s car. Priceless.

Chill out, yo. -_______________- Reason #425 I’m excited for college.
my uncle roy is an amusing fellow
Alton: (referring to dog) when did he last get groomed?
Roy: (straight-faced and matter-of-fact-ly) I think I went to the barbers 2 weeks ago.
Leon: i like helvetica now
Leon: cause it feels hipstery
Bananna: I'm actually not too familiar with helvetica
Bananna: gonna go check it out
Leon: it be like
Leon: and mystical
Leon: and ponies
Bananna: DUDE I LOVE HELVETICA
Bananna: omg so much better than arial
Leon: THERE IS
Leon: NO DIFFERENCE
Bananna: helvetica started on macs
Bananna: and arial was first licensed by windows
Bananna: dude comic sans originated with windows
Leon: everyone hates comic sans
Bananna: okay yeah windows just sucks dick at aesthetics
Bananna: I think if I were to switch over to macs
Bananna: this would be part of my justification
there's a fine line
Between people being legitimately happy for you regarding admissions and people finding you an annoying/inconsiderate/arrogant college-whoring toerag. I’ve seen shit that’s straightup moving, and I’ve seen shit that make me want to punch people in the face. Which I don’t often feel inclined to do. For the record. Idk. I have no problem with people posting about admissions...
that single word answer to half the questions...
Why are you wearing a cape today? Robotics. Hey are you okay? What’s up? Robotics. Where are you going? Robotics. What’s up with all the red hair? Robotics. No further explanation needed. Especially with the cape one.
To the ones that have your back. <3
no one wants your pity
I understand not bragging about college acceptances. Not trumpeting the news, not proclaiming and announcing it for all to hear whether they want to or not. But I don’t understand keeping it an absolute secret. First off that’s a big FUCK YOU to the people that are close but are apparently not good enough to be one of the select few you choose to tell, and second trying to avoid...
just the highlights
[[MORE]] I think Navi already hit a lot of them, but… Navi-gating to Davis. Who would’ve guessed that Davis had TWO Dos Coyotes, both next to a Safeway? Of course not us. Hair dying. I kept the white hotel towels completely clean, but did manage to turn the entire shower floor pink and streak the pillowcase red. Sleep: 3 hours / 2 days. Victor visiting! Pit scouting and mascot...

I decided to take up guitar, Tried to cook that egg-in-onion-ring thing, Put another bottle of red hair dye on hold, much to the confusement of the store clerk at the sudden popularity of that one shade of red, Gave in and played ukulele, Ate what must be the Swedish version of horse feed for lunch, And…yup. I have a thesis now!

On the other hand, when you need to write a paper, get stuff done. You’ll still get everything done…but the paper. That’s definitely me right now… It’s 7PM, Sunday evening. Term paper is due Tuesday. I still don’t have a thesis statement, and haven’t finished a single one of my research books yet. Well, fuck. But I have managed to suspend a sunflower...

Did you instantly reblog, retweet, repost, comment, like, purchase, post, support it after the video? Or did you take a second to search it up from another source? Do you not question how a social-media campaign has gone viral and domino’d in so little time? Or do you assume it must be legit if it’s garnered such a huge following already?

“participation in FIRST as a risk. It is a great example of an activity where you put in a huge amount of time and effort and you may not succeed with anything tangible. Your robot may not work and you will not receive a grade. But that risk is a telling one. It shows an understanding that it is the experience and not the trophy that is the reward.” It still sounds generic and...

i hate logistics
This is why people have travel agents. Fuck hotel bookings, fuck meal costs, fuck changes-in-plans, fuck staying-differing-numbers-of-nights, fuck lodging plans, fuck group discount rates, fuck wasting 40 minutes on the phone trying to figure this all out, fuck block booking, fuck paying for all of a chaperone’s costs, fuck traffic driving up to Davis, fuck budgeting shortfalls, fuck...
