    -piano
    -going off to explore things, generally on my own (I'm trying to convince my parents to let me do a solo week-long backpacking trip in the Rockies, but they won't oblige- I may have to settle for doing it in Iowa or something)
    -testing people
    -going to garage sales/thrift stores/free stuff
    -Da Bears!
    -driving
    -skiing, also on my own (I think it adds to the thrill)

    Volunteering at the soup kitchen.
    Worshipping Harvard.
    Spending summers in Ethiopia so I can dig holes and carry bricks.

    ...and other obscure things that today's Super Applicant will do to increase his chances at a top college.

    ^I have a hard time telling whether or not you are sarcastic, mainly because of this: Soup-Kitchen Volunteers Hate College-Application-Padding Brat | The Onion - America's Finest News Source

    ^ I am completely serious, Senior. My soup-kitchen service skills are far superior to those of my peers. Soup kitchens embrace me, "college-application-padding brats" fear me, and Harvard stalks me. College admission guidebooks are my Bible.

    Coupled with my NHS leadership and French Club dedication (not to mention my unearthly good looks), I am irresistable. FEAR AND OBEY ME FOR I AM THE ULTIMATE SUPER APPLICANT.

    Sorry, I'm on a caffeine/CC-induced power trip right now. But thanks for sharing that article. Gave me a good laugh.

    @Senior0991 "going off to explore things, generally on my own (I'm trying to convince my parents to let me do a solo week-long backpacking trip in the Rockies, but they won't oblige- I may have to settle for doing it in Iowa or something)"


    this is something i've always wanted to do: just explore.
    i think this is awesome.
    my goal is to go around the united states after college graduation
    then the world after graduate school



    PS does anyone know how to quote someone?
    i checked the "quote message in reply" button but it doesn't work.
  • Senior0991Senior0991 Posts: 2,377Registered User Senior Member
    ^yeah put [quotes]enter words here[/quotes]

    To make sure it didn't quote what I said, I added an extra s to the end of quote. You should take that out. I think there's a control shortcut that I don't know, but manually typing it in is a start.

    Yeah exploring is pretty cool. I somewhat wished I lived in a time when there were uncharted areas I could explore, but it's still alright now I guess.

    Reading
    History
    Law

    Which could then be arranged in the following formats:

    Reading. history, law
    Reading the history of law
    Reading history and law

    Because I love all of the above XD

    Edit: Oh I also love cartooning, lettering and general drawing :3
