things on the internet that made me happy  

today i got an email from northwestern university saying that they are interested in me as a student because of my 'high' (quotes because they were fucking abysmal and i hate everything, ahem) SAT scores. i have never heard of them before but people seem to like them and apparently they want me.

so i... guess if they don't have a supplement as detailed as, say, stanford's (good god, stanford, what is wrong with you) i... might apply. maybe.

even though i'm convinced either they suck or they sent me the email by mistake. maybe both.

it... still made me kind of gleeful for a while.

am i ever glad i'm over that, right.

before i came into this city i never saw a shooting star: wait no now it's shell games. or not. i don't know. i'm by a fan.
you said your soul was precious when you were trying to sell your soul to me: blank.

If you can apply for free or for pretty cheap I say apply. It doesn't hurt anything and you never know what will happen. The school I picked ended up being one of the ones that was free to apply to and that I wasn't terribly worried about. Strange things happen!

it looks like the application fee is $65, which... seriously, guys, really? but my dad thinks i'm not looking at enough schools, so unless i find something to turn me off it entirely it could bulk up the list as a fallback if nothing else. (i don't understand why i need more than one fallback, i already have one and it's both a fairly sure thing and a really awesome school, but i'm... not used to thinking in terms of that people will actually reject me? that they should have, yes, that they actually would, no. chronic being-the-valedictorian-ism and the kind of delusions i have are a seriously weird combination.)
