Eamon Sullivan pawed my pants.
I took a bunch of photos, but will only post one here.

-le sigh-

The number of international applicants for MIT went up in 2008.
Which meant the international acceptance rate went down.

I'm trying to do different things, because all the MIT sites talk about how they want students with different activities.
Although most, if not all of them, are things I want to do, I'm worried that everything I'll be working towards in the next 2 years (an MIT acceptance letter) won't become a reality.
All my friends keep saying they'll push me, but in the end, it seems that it's almost just chance.
Nearly everyone who applies is as brilliant as the next person, but it all depends on who reads your application and whether they like you better than the next applicant.

Lastly, I picked my subjects for next year.
- Literature
- Introductory Calculus
- Geometry and Trigonometry
- Physics
- Chemistry
- Human Biological Science

I was pretty confident about doing six TEE (university pathway subjects).
Until teachers told me I was probably going to burn out.
