I am a slacker, and it is just now starting to bother me. I used to take pride in the fact that I have for the most part maintaind a 3.3 GPA without trying for the past two and a half years, and I took the SATs without ever studying and got 1180. Now that I am starting to look for colleges, not only that will take me, but will give me money, and make me happy/ keep me challenged, I am at a loss. I have next semester to drastically bring my grades up, and I can always take the SATs again, but I would still like to prepare myself for the possibility that I will have to use my current grades and such to apply for college.
I have to got to school tomorrow, but I cant sleep and I’m bored. My solution was to write an auto-biography for my profile. I feel like posting it as a blog first though. I like the way it makes my life seem so straight forward and simple. I don’t like that it makes me feel extremely young and naive....
I was born in Israel. I came to Washington D.C with my parents. Two years later my brother was born. I started in a private kindergarten at age four. Once, I was bored and I cut my own hair. I was worried that no one would recognize me the next day, so I wrote my name on my shirt. Everyone thought it was cute. I went on to the local public school for first grade, and then in fourth grade I was home-schooled for three days before I got accepted into the local magnet school. When I got to the magnet school, I was given the choice between third and fourth grade, because I was born late in the year(December). I chose fourth, because I had two friends in the fourth grade class, and only one in the third grade class. My fifth and sixth grade science teacher grew up in my house. That creeped me out, but was cool at the same time. He is a cool guy. I still bump into him around town, we talk.
Did anyone catch "This American Life," yesterday on National Public Radio. The story was all about the history of the APA's (American Psychiatric Association) entry on sexual deviations. It was a really good story, and if your not a dork who listens to public radio I would check it out here http://www.thislife.org/.
I just saw RENT!!
Well, Spring Break started out on saturday with Youth Pride Day in D.C. I went with three friends and meet a few people I knew, and a few new people. It was pretty fun, there was a lot of great music, a pretty decent Drag King show, and a ton of free condoms and dental danm.
The rest of the week up until now has been completly devoted to preparing for the passover seder. I cooked, cooked, cooked and cooked. I love cooking, I'm an aspiring culinary artist and in a few short years I'll be off to culinary school where I'll be able to cook 24-7. But I'm still glad it's over and I have today and the next three days to my self.
Today is a very weird day. It seems missplaced, but thats what happens in march. Im sitting here watching the snow fall outside my window, with a box of tissues, a bottle of asprin, and a mug full of hot tea. Yeasterday is was 74 degrees outside and, its supposed to get back around 80 degrees again by thursday.
Besides being sick, I have had a pretty amazing weekend. Friday, I wore capris to school and showed off my beautiful hairy legs. Although I am sure people cared, and looked at my legs, and thought "wow, that girls a freak," no one said anything to me about my hairy legs, or asked me why I dont shave. That made me happy, and gave me the esteem that I needed to be proud of my hairy femenenity(is that spelled sorrectly??).
