About a week ago, I was at home minding my own business, when my mom burst into the house with piles of mail. Apparently, my PSAT score was sent to several colleges, and they sent me letters, wanting me to order some more information about them. My parents and I spent hours sorting the mail, throwing out the ones from schools that were too far away, too big, in the middle of no where, the one that thought I wanted a business major, and the women's colleges, and there's still a pile of about 25 letters! Now I've got several large books on colleges to read, my aunt, uncle, and grandma want me to go to school in New England, I want to stay closer to home, but I'd have to get in to a good school close to home (my parent's university is very close by, but they've told me not to go there, since it's huge). I have to take SAT, SAT II, AP history test, and HSPAs. But overall, it's extremely exciting. I think I'll be much happier at college, if I don't let the stress get to me first!
