It’s that time of the year for seniors in high school, filled with stress and anxiety as we begin to send in our college applications in hopes of getting a higher education than what we already have.
It’s so much stress that sometimes I wonder why we put ourselves through it. Is it for personal gain? Societal normalcy? Parent’s expectations? Or a combination of all three?
I’ve known so many people who have reached such an intense level of stress that they just cry every day, and my artistic friends are frantically attempting to finish and submit their portfolios every second of every day, it seems.
Alas, I do not know that same amount of stress yet, as I am doing Regular Decision to nearly every school I am applying to, as I don’t want to bind myself to any particular school, out of fear that I may come to hate that particular school.
On a side note, I visited Boston recently, quite frankly one of the most beautiful cities in the world, in my opinion.
I went to Flour bakery, and visited my brother at MIT, and visited Boston College and Wellesley to demonstrate interest.
That was just about all I did there, that doesn’t make for an interesting story.
Oh, and eat. I did a lot of eating.
The city was beautiful, as I stated, with the leaves just starting to ignite into their vivid golds and reds.
Boston College was gorgeous. All of that stained glass and Gothic architecture was simply stunning.
And Wellesley was so beautiful and filled with nature. I can only imagine it in snow with light filtering from above.
I wonder how everything looks now, with the foliage even brighter and more evidently discolored into bronze, gold, and red.
On a side note, I went to a book store and I found a very lovely book.
It made my day, but it was 15 dollars. Otherwise I would’ve definitely gotten it.
