Thank you.

Dear… everyone, I guess.

This is too big of a post to put on Facebook. But I wanted to make a post thanking everyone for your very, very lovely birthday messages. I’m not sure if that’s due to the fact the number of Facebook friends I have grew, or if that’s due to the fact that the number of real life, close, actual friends I have grew–but I appreciated every single one of these messages and this is the most birthday wishes that I’ve ever gotten in my life.

So here we go, a giant thank you to everyone who made me feel loved. :) (more…)

Last year, on December 12th, 2014, I opened my EA decision letter from Harvard.

Just yesterday, I realized (while procrastinating for exams) that December 10th is the day a handful of Ivies (Cornell, Harvard, Columbia, and Brown) release their early action/early decision results. Not unlike me just a year ago, I see the Class of 2016 fidgeting on the applicant groups on Facebook, weighing their chances and praying to the admission gods for a miracle.

Maybe you got the decision you wanted… or maybe you didn’t.

But, whatever it was, I want to tell you: “that’s ok.” (more…)
