through college admissions i’ve learned so much and grown so much as a person. day after day, i discover more and more of who i am. on thursday, i found out that i have been accepted to UC berkeley. that was my second choice school after stanford. after finding out about stanford in december, i was set on berkeley. i got an acceptance from UCSD which was not far behind my love for cal. however, over the past couple days, i’ve realized how much i love cal and how much i can picture myself there. i have never been so excited to keep living my life and get out there on my own. now that i know where i’m going, i can start planning for my time there. congrats to the rest of the cal class of 2016!

holy moly, it has been SO long since i last updated. jeez, i mean, a lot has happened since my last post (october 25). my holidays were fantastic and i couldn’t ask for a better group of family and friends to spend it with. i’m excited for 2012 because it is a big milestone year for me. i turn 18, graduate, travel to foreign country by myself (staying with relatives, of course), start college…boy, it’s gonna be a busy year! even if things go sour, i know that i’m going to keep an optimistic outlook because you just have to take life day by day.

a medication update: i’m still taking zoloft 50 mg every morning along with 65 mg of solodyn (for acne) and 1290 mg fish oil (helps improve brain function/depression/etc.). all seems to be going well. i feel so much more stable emotionally and rarely have breakdowns. i haven’t resorted to unhealthy coping mechanisms (other than eating some cookies and such hehehe) and i just feel good (HALLELUJAH!). my body seems to be tolerating the solodyn which is great and i’m seeing incredible improvement in my skin (i’m almost through my second bottle of the stuff) – even my family has noticed how much it has cleared. it honestly makes me feel so great to not have giant nodules on my face that are painful and embarrassing. yippee!!

a school-related update: i sent in all of my applications and am now waiting to hear back from 6/7 schools. the only school i’ve heard back from (because i applied restrictive early action) is stanford which, sadly, sent me a rejection notice. i handled it a lot better than i would have expected considering how badly i wanted to go there and how much time i spent imagining myself at that school. however, although i did not get in, a very dear friend of mine received an acceptance from stanford and i could not be happier for her. she’s an incredible person and will do amazing things as she joins the stanford class of 2016. hopefully i can end up at berkeley so we’ll be right across the bay from each other! how fun would that be?

a personal update: I GOT A KITTY. i got him on december 18th as an early christmas present. he’s a beautiful 3 month old male domestic medium hair. he’s absolutely precious and has made me so happy over the past two weeks. i honestly can’t imagine my life without him now that he’s a part of my life! i can’t wait to take him to college with me when i’m a sophomore/junior and i’m in my own apartment. i named him walt (after walt disney). he’s so playful yet super affectionate. he’s absolutely perfect. the first week he was coughing and wheezing so we took him to the vet – turns out he had an upper respiratory infection for which we got antibiotics (which are a pain in the butt to give to him because he hates the taste…poor kitty). a few days ago, i woke up to these little sesame seed looking things in my bed and after doing some research, i found out that mr. walt had a tapeworm. thankfully, my neighbor is a vet tech and came over to give him an injection that made the tapeworm digest in his system. so no more wormies for walter!

that’s about it for now. i feel like there’s a lot more to update on but maybe if i actually kept up with this blog, i wouldn’t have to try to recap 2 months of stuff into a few paragraphs! i hope you’re all well and had a safe and blissful holiday season. be kind and tell your loved ones how special they are to you. always remember, you’re beautiful.
