Finally heard back from Stanford! They hate me. Okay, so they probably don't hate me (Well, they might. My test scores and grades aren't fantastic) but I just didn't get in. Which is okay with me. I decided in October that if I ever had to pick between MIT and Stanford, I'd pick MIT. They're actually nice. And don't grumpily refer to me as "The Girl In The Back" at information sessions.
If only I could just coast through the remaining days of school. Senior Project is the worst part of school ever conceived. I hate it. Truly, thoroughly and passionately hate it. The only part I enjoyed was the 12-page research paper, but that was finished a long time ago. :(
My friends came up with this fantastic list of the stages of Senioritis. I'm definitely at Stage 6.
STAGE 1: Procrastination Doubles
STAGE 2: Overwhelmed by Work
STAGE 3: Extensive Doodling/Napping (Possibly in school)
STAGE 4: Frustration with School
STAGE 5: Frustration with School and Teachers
STAGE 6: Stop Caring About School
STAGE 7: Avoid Difficult Classes
STAGE 8: Napping Increase (can occur any time after stage 3 but usually happens after stage 7)
STAGE 9: Hatred of Life in General (also known as frustration with life circumstances and situation, not to be confused with hatred of living)
STAGE 10A: Failure to Graduate
STAGE 10B: Graduates normally
STAGE 10C: Barely Graduates55 days, 55 days, 55 days. 81 until my Scotland/Ireland trip. And approximately 12 until MIT's CPW.
I cannot wait.
