I really really slacked hard my junior year and now I'm afraid I won't get into any college :(((

Hey!

I did the same exact thing. I got a C in my French Honors class. I was so worried that I would get rejected from every college that I would cry myself to sleep. 

Look. This is what I told myself, and now I’m telling you. 

What happened, happened. You can’t go back in time and change that. No one can. Instead of focusing your energy on the past, channel it into what you CAN change. Work your ASS off the first semester of your senior year. Write the best college essay you possibly can. Retake your ACT / SAT and try to get the best score you can get. Don’t get senioritus. Focus on what you can do to make it easier to get accepted. Your GPA is only one portion of a very large college application.

Look. College admissions officers know mistakes happen. They get it. What they want to see is how you handled that mistake. There’s a section for additional comments on your common app. Explain the grades situation there. They want to see an upward trend in grades, so don’t fuck it up. I’m very happy that you’ve recognized that you slacked, don’t let it happen again. 

And something tells me you won’t. Keep working hard, and you can turn this around. Colleges will still accept you. GOOD colleges will still accept you. I didn’t think they would either, and wow was I proven wrong. Don’t give up. I believe you can do it. You got this.

Bless you. I'm going to be going to a college 14/15ish hours away from my home and I will be a freshman who skipped a grade in high school (I never had to study, school was easy). Your blog is helping me learn to study. You're simply amazing.

Thank you anon! I wish you all the best in college! If you ever have any questions or need support, feel free to message me!

Letting go is the easy part. It’s the moving on that’s painful. So sometimes we fight it, trying to keep things the same. Things can’t stay the same though. At some point you just have to let go, move on. Because no matter how painful it is, it’s the only we we grow.

So, I’d actually been planning to make this post waaaaay before (like months ago or maybe like last year) but was only able to do so now xD and I’m pretty happy about only doing it now because I just realized that as this side blog has celebrated/celebrates its 1st birthday (XD it’s been around a year since I made this blog), it is more fitting that this post be one to both commemorate 1 year of this blog’s existence and as an appreciation post to show my gratitude and love ~ :> So to all of you tagged, thank you for following and for bearing through my ramblings and everything xD I really appreciate each and every one of you :> and I hope that as time goes by, maybe we can all become good friends ? (some of you are already my mutuals ily guys) So thank you for everything again ♥ more power to your blogs and you are all the best

(i tried my best to type everyone’s name but i may have missed out on some. if so, please tell me ;-; )

Summary: Since they had so much fun last year, best friends Kurt and Blaine decide to join their university’s Freshman Adventure Camp again; but this time as camp seniors. AU!Klaine AO3

Note: Hints of Samcedes, Tike and Niff too. Those that have been following me should know that writing this fic really means quite a lot to me; I spent a lot of time writing and refining it. I was a camp senior a few weeks ago and all the games here were what we played then. It’s the longest fic I’ve written so far and I had the most amazing time writing this. I hope that you all like it!

“Purples, get down, now! Only the Reds can score!”

Kurt chuckled from his seat as he watched his freshies with purple paint on their arms quickly duck, and those with red paint holler for the ball, following the game master’s orders. They were out on the field playing Colour Captain Ball, much like the normal Captain Ball, but with added rules of which colour can score.

It was day one of camp, and to say that he had been nervous was a serious understatement. Being a camp senior placed quite a large responsibility on his shoulders, especially with him being the head senior for his Orientation Group. Luckily, he had the other seniors of the OG to help him out. Blaine, Rachel, Quinn and Elliot were his trusty sidekicks for this camp, and together, they made the seniors of the OG Griffin.

When it comes to assessing the value of a college, only one thing matters: how much that school will help you succeed in life. So when it comes to choosing a college, it pays, literally, to choose well.

For our fifth annual list of the Best Colleges in America, we asked our readers — professionals in a variety of industries — what they consider to be the best colleges in America.

And for the fourth year in a row, they rated the Massachusetts Institute of Technology as the number one college in America.
