I always wanted to do more but I never really got the chance because I work a lot as a caddie over the summer and have a job as a sales associate at TCF Bank.
Anyways, I really wanna get into Boston University. If you have any words of wisdom or you just wanna make fun of me because I suck compared to you, that would be just super. Thanks again.
