carleton college

Today is the first day of spring. My law class finished early. So I had time to read my book for global literature. My goal is to finish it for tonight because I have until 23th to finish my paper about it. I love spring so much. It’s get me very motivated to work harder. I can do anything!

So. I think I finally figured out a final list of everywhere I’m going to apply to for transfer.


  • Amherst College
  • Bard College
  • Bates College
  • Carleton College
  • Hamilton College
  • Kenyon College
  • Middlebury College
  • Pomona College
  • Sarah Lawrence College
  • Swarthmore College
  • Trinity College
  • Vassar College
  • Whitman College
  • Williams College
  • Yale College

Overkill a little?

Now time to write about 19 supplement essays.

Also, to any current students hanging around these tags, feel free to message me why *your* school is the best and the one I should go to, particularly if you’re familiar with the theatre or political science departments. :3

EDIT: despite this being about two years old, I still occasionally get asks in response to it, so I’d to amend and say that I’ve since happily transferred to Swarthmore College. So if anyone has questions about Swarthmore or transferring in general, I’d be glad to answer them!

My sister sent me a photo of this bizarre and cute scene at the library at Carleton College.

The sign reads:

Gigi is our first ever stapler to make it to her first birthday! Most of our staplers last a few months at most, so by our calculations, she’s something like 355 Stapler Years Old!!!

Want to help celebrate? Use the other stapler on this table so that Gigi can have her birthday off. Sign her birthday card or take a selfie with the birthday stapler.

Wait you go to school in minnesota or where? I'm so confused. I go to school I'm minnesota omg do I know you

You would probably remember us if you knew us. We are just that memorable.

But in all seriousness, we go to school at Carleton College, which you should check out if you aren’t already a) committed to another school or b) too old for college at this point in your life. We love it!

I look at how all my friends' Facebook statuses reflect their utmost excitement to finally be at college at UNC or NC State, and I just smile and realise that I'm going to a much better place.

I’m proud of my closest friends (and myself) for being some of the few in our graduating class to venture out to faraway parts of the country for college. Northfield, Minnesota…Colorado Springs, Colorado…Poughkeepsie, New York…Boston, Massachusetts. I wonder what sorts of things we’ll get up to while we’re apart…

[And Daily–hang in there! Senior year will fly by and you’ll be in our place before you know it!]
