Swimming in the Fall



Last night, I submitted this application that I’ve been working on for the past two weeks for quite a generous scholarship.  Unfortunately, a few days ago, because of my parents’ moderate income, the online application told me that my chances of getting the scholarship are slim, so I’m like, “Why do I find out about this now?”  Nevertheless, I completed it.

Anyway, now that that burden is off my shoulders, I felt a little daring today and decided not to go home after school.  Better watch out, guys.  You don’t want to be found with me.

Ok, ok.  Seriously, even though I had two tests the following day, I told myself, “You haven’t hung out with some of your friends for a long time.  Screw school, and go with them.”  So I did.

The best part must have been playing mahjong.  We went to my friend’s house.   We were planning to sing some karaoke (so cool, I know), but my friend’s brother was playing some video games with a friend.  In the back of the room, I found a mahjong set.  I’ve always wondered how it was played, and after my friends taught us how to play, we all got into it.

I got home pretty late and ended up barely studying.

  1. I’m sorry about the scholarship…don’t give up though. What is it? You have to live in a cardboard box in order to qualify for the scholarship? See what else is out there, you can do it!
