Gettin’ real tired of your sh!t
I am so done with people stereotyping ucsb. Everytime I tell people where I am going to college, the first thing that comes out of their mouth is about partying/alcohol/sex and it’s freaking annoying. UCSB is a good school, ok. Just once, I want someone to respond with “wow, that’s a great school you must have worked hard in high school to get where you are. Well, good luck!” because I did work hard in high school. So many late nights of homework/studying, so many extra curriculars. I guess it’s something I gotta get used to, but I just want people to realize that I am going to a great school that is actually one of the top universities in the US & not just a party school.
College + Money + Dorming
So at first I only wanted to be in a double room for dorming in college, but now I want to be in a triple. Because it’ll give me a chance to have a different roommate other than someone I already know. Plus it knocks about $3,000 off of my room and board cost. UCSB sent out an email a few weeks ago saying that 2/3 freshmen will be in triples & I’m really hoping that I am one of those people because like i said cheaper and meeting someone new. Also, my tuition/room & board for fall quarter has to be paid by September 15 and I still haven’t gotten my official award letter so I’m freaking out a little bit ok. That leaves about a month to figure all this money out. I have a $500 scholarship that I got at Senior Awards Night but wow. I think I’ll have to take out loans. Wow, college costs too much money ugh. Why can’t I just get a quality education at a realistic, affordable price? Anyway, so yeah I’m just venting about my college/financial woes~
UCSB Orientation was such an awesome experience. So many things happened that I can’t even begin to write it all down here. It was both fun and stressful trying to get classes. Intimidating at times. But in general, I had a blast, met a lot of people & I’m even more pumped for school to start in the fall. GO GAUCHOS! But, here’s my fall quarter schedule. I’m super happy about it. I’m a theater major & I’m taking Intro to Acting, Play Analysis, The Hollywood Industry, & Intro to Psychology. LET’S DO THIS.
Turned in my housing application this week. This is all getting too real. I’m so excited!
I haven’t posted it on Tumblr yet
