A few days ago I was talking to HWSFRN about completely stupid stuff. Somehow the topic switched over to Madison. He said something along the lines of I should look into going to Madison. Haha.
I would love to go to Madison. Honestly, just being in the city gives me this feeling like I'm at home despite the fact I live hours away.
I didn't even care about my grades until I was standing infront of Bascom Hall. Of course, by then I had already let myself slip. Yeah, my GPA isn't horrid, but it isn't good enough to get me where I actually want to go. Some statistics that I found say the average ACT score for freshmen at UW is 26--STATE AVERAGE IS 22!!! There is no freaking way I'm going to get a 26 on my ACT.
Pink Piggy thinks I'm worrying over nothing because we got back the results of some crap-ass standardized test we took earlier in the year and I scored advanced in every category. That means crap to me!
My dad and I just had a "talk" about my future. Oh wait, he just tried to talk me out of going to a "large" college. He wants me to "reconsider" my interest in Madison. I made a joke about how if I don't get into UW I'll just apply to Edgewood (also in Madison). Then of course he said, "I see you as a small-town girl, not a big towner. If you go to a big college you'll get eaten alive and bad things will happen."
Switching topics now.
I take my driving test tomorrow. I'm scared out of my mind. The place I'm testing in has traffic I've never driven in before--it's nuts. Yeah, I know it's not bad, but today was the first time I've ever driven in any type of traffic. (Hmmm...now that I think about it...I think the whole "If I can't handle this traffic what am I going to do in Madison?" comment lead to the whole college talk with my dad)
So at 8:30 tomorrow morning I'm going to be trapped in my Barney Mobile with someone I've never met trying to muster up some driving skill I do not have.
Wish me luck!
