[10:11:42 PM] annabanana: it would be one of those things where the husband admits to cheating

[10:11:52 PM] annabanana: now i'm going to divorce your ass
Therein lies the dilemma: colleges want your essay to be honest and to reflect your voice, but they neither want the truth nor someone with a stupid voice.
I really should be doing work right now instead of blogging but I try not to go too long without writing something. Sometimes I feel bad for taking the time to write these when everyone else is so focused on doing work, but then someone will message me about something they just read in one of my posts, and I feel better knowing other people aren't working either.
I was just talking with Jess on the phone after having finished my first essay:
me: I still need to write the last essay. What about you?
Jess: Oh that? I gave up on essays!
me: Don't worry about it. When's the MIT one due?
Jess: This is such a funny quote! (proceeds to read random lines from a website)
me: What site is it?
Jess: I'll send you the link
This is why we aren't going to get into college
