I've been expecting this, but.... rejected (or as they put it "not admitted") from Carnegie Mellon. I've had to wait an entire week to get this notfication. It's not fair that admitted students are notified first. An entire week of waiting when we could have moved on with life.

Woot, my first image! And I've been accepted to USC's Interactive Media Division. Honestly, I don't feel like I'm qualified, but I'm excited at the prospect of going (and have been nervous the past few weeks). This nearly makes up for my UCLA rejection. I shouldn't have tried to apply to their Design | Media Arts program, knowing that I wasn't ready at all. Now all there is left to worry about are my application to Carnegie Mellon's integrated BCSA program, and whether or not I will receive enough financial aid to reasonable enroll at these schools.
With the SCVMA Math Field Day at SJSU coming up this Saturday, I feel really pressured, as I also want to put time into Heart of Darkness (just crammed with details, required reading for English 4AP class), Doodle 4 Google (I just love google, and really want to participate, also the chance for a 15k scholarship), preparing for CMU's fateful decision, and even my pages for our chinese school yearbook (>_> what pictures of myself?). I'm going to be participating the in the Leap Frog Relay, with the erudite Ken Cheng. I've had these practice questions for two full weeks, and yet i only begin to look at them with two days left until judgement. What terrible work habits.
Us children. Bob Ross, some reading power childrens' show, Wishbone, Simply Ming, Chen Jan (sp?), etc. We haven't watched the tele in such a long time, everything was made fun of.

Followed STさん to San Jose State University. He needed extra credit for Photography... 'said it was harder than he thought. Sean needs extra credit? Saw Juliana Rico's photo gallery, she had a bunch of night pictures, and people who moved were blurred. I liked the fire-breathing one, and the photo of a cosplaying child (robot head) captivated by the balloon-making clown. Someone left a Pac-man note, so I drew a ghost for them. Cute! Other galleries include an unwanted gallery, with a lot of sad testimonials from people who feel left out and unloved, a Tetris clone with musical notes instead of blocks, and a pottery showcase.
In the hall, two paintings caught our attention. One yellow one had the screws take a part in the image, it reminded STさん of Steamboy. The screws looked attached to joints of machinery. Another painting featured what looked like flying sushi, and fiery food that fell through the sky like meteors. Mhmmmm, hungry.
