Welcome! My Status:
I'm back! I know it's been a month; I'm so sorry! I was really sick (the flu, ugh) and just exhausted from school, but I'll be posting regularly again. Hope everybody had a lovely holiday!
it all makes you stronger
Welcome to my blog! Here you'll find things interesting to an overworked, overachiever Upper East Sider. :)
Let me start off with saying that I go to the hardest all-girls' high school here in Manhattan; my school is one of the top ten private high schools in the country. (Note: I'm not saying this to brag. I'm simply saying that so that anyone who's curious can try to imagine my workload. Bragging is something that should always be avoided--and, because my workload isn't too fun, I wouldn't exactly be bragging about it!) It's the land of the preps, but also the land of the perfectionists. The place where it's basically impossible to get all A's. And it's the place where I'm fighting to become cross country captain. The place where I always have to run faster, train harder, sleep less, study more, all to try to chase one fleeting, near-impossible dream: admission to a top college, hopefully with a scholarship and a spot on the cross country team.
My dream is to major in pre-med in college. I want to go to Princeton, but right now I'm also thinking of Duke or Johns Hopkins (they have really good pre-med and also give out merit scholarships unlike Ivies). I want to get recruited for cross country (again, hopefully to Princeton). Afterwards I want to go to medical school (NYU, where my uncle works) and become a pediatric orthopedic surgeon. I want to marry another doctor and continue to live in Manhattan, with a house in East Hampton and another in Nantucket, and a couple of sweet, preppy daughters and some pets. And...that's my dream.
