Day 1 || 10/24/16

Well, I’m starting this journal.  Only because it’s in my bucket list.  And I just wanna kill time because I’m supposed to be studying for a test that I don’t want to be studying for.  And I think I can write a journal a day for a whole year (which obviously is impossible, hence my demeanor).  I probably seem so mature and sophisticated, but it’s probably not gonna last long.  

Today was pretty boring, and stressful.  This morning I woke up at like 6:30, and ended up leaving my house at 7:20 but I managed to get to school at like 7:50.  To be honest, I prefer riding the train compared to the bus, only because there’s a slim chance of me being late whilst riding the train.  Yesterday I took the SHSAT, and it was okay.  I mean, I probably flunked the math, and verbal was alright, I think Kaplan prepared me very much for that.  I just really hope I get into Stuyvesant – if I don’t, it’ll be the death of me.  The thing is, I’m very insecure about what people think of me.  The Valedictorian from last year got into Stuy by self-studying, so if I don’t get in, I’m stupid.  I really want to get in; not because of the title, but because I really loved the school.  I want to be challenged.  I don’t care how much homework there is.  I want to be part of the community.  Fingers crossed for March.  I really hope I get in, because Stuy and Townsend are my first choices, but hell I’ll choose Stuy over anything.
