Apparently, I was supposed to actively start applying for college in the summer. My bad. Anyway, now I'm going to try to catch up when I get back from vacation, so that isn't a big deal.
What is a big deal is this whole college thing in the first place. I mean, exactly how many hoops do I have to jump through to get into college anyway? These college books make it sound so complicated. It just seems that there are so many complicated maneuvers you have to go through: ACT/SAT, all of these prep classes, the college essay. Then, even on the application itself, there are all of these short answer questions and you're supposed to tease out just the right way to answer them. I mean, what am I supposed to say? Failure doesn't seem like an option when I'm competing with thousands of other people.
I don't know why I'm stressing out so much over this, but I am. At night, I'm thinking about it and it's giving me the creeps. How in the world am I supposed to do this? What am I supposed to do after this?
I feel a bit at a loss. Maybe it won't seem like that big of a deal when I'm actually in college, but for now the task seems absolutely monumental. Community college is starting to seem more and more appealing. I suppose I'll find out soon enough how I fare. Wish me luck
