    Am I Worth It?

    Anything I would want to study is in the arts (drawing graphic novels, film, voice acting, and so on). I have found the only college in the US that has everything I could even dream of. It's perfect. However, it's very expensive. I mean it's private college expensive. That...

    In a couple weeks I'll move into student housing

    and begin class. After 12 years of school I'm extremely hesitant to return for a bachelor's degree. On the other hand I'm kind of excited for a fresh start and new experience. I just hope I'm able to be more social than i was in high school.

    I will be a college student in Fall of 2015.

    I'm 17 right now... and I haven't applied to any schools yet, but I have my eyes on Vanderbilt. That's my #1 choice. I don't think I'll get in, but it's always good to have a LITTLE bit of optimism... so I guess I could say that the worst they could say is "no?" One of my...
