it’s all over. the envelope is in the mail. there is aBsolutely nothing i can do. there’s no point imAgining the admissions officeRs flippiNg through my pApeRs. there’s no use imagining what they thought as they reaD my essays. COLLEGE counselors always tell you to remember that you did your best. but did i really do my best?
I could’ve done better.
If only I hadn’t No. I can’t change the fact that I did what I did. What happened happened and what’s done is done. Things I’ve learned?
The letter comes tomorrow, in the mail. The news I receive tomorrow will determine THE NEXT FOUR YEARS of my life.
SECRET: Why am I so sure I didn’t get in? BECAUSE I DIDN’T DO MY BEST. THAT’S WHY. AND NOW THE WHOLE WORLD KNOWS IT AND IT’S NOT A SECRET ANYMORE. IF I DON’T GET IN, THAT’S WHY. I’m sorry.
Wish me luck.
