HOOOOOLLLLLYYYYYY SHIIIIIIIIT YOU GUYS
YOU GUYS YOU GUYS YOU GUYS
THIS IS NOT A DRILL I REPEAT THIS IS NOT A DRILL

I JUST GOT A CALL THAT THE NJ SUPREME COURT SAYS I’M ALLOWED TO WORK FOR THE JUDICIARY (if you are unaware, this is a Thing since my dad is a judge–I applied for a job and they wanted to hire me but there was all this extra stuff including getting the Supreme Court to waive a policy about hiring relatives of current employees).

The lady (WHO WILL BE MY NEW BOSS) said the Court has NEVER approved anyone before so she was so sure they wouldn’t but she still wanted to put me forward because she wanted me to work with her that much and.  I knew it was a long shot and it’s been so long since I was interviewed that I thought for sure the Court would just say ‘no, lol, just put out another job posting and try to get somebody good who isn’t a judge’s kid.'  But.  No.

THEY APPROVED ME.  JUDICIARY IS GOING TO OFFER ME A JOB.  I’M GETTING OUT OF HERE TO A JOB THAT’S PURELY RESEARCH AND WRITING.  MY FAVORITE THING.

I CAN’T BREAAAAAAAATHE THE DREAM IS GOING TO COME TRUE.

Reflecting on my scores.

Honestly you know what. 

I should be happy with what I got. But I’m not happy with what I got. And neither are my parents. 

Whoa wait let me rephrase that. I’m not happy with what I got because my parents are not happy with what I got.  

I mean, I know I surprised my teachers because although I have potential (god I hate that word), I’ve never shown in. Right until my mock exams I was scoring a 28. But now my parents are like, but you didn’t get that 7 in math (which I’m bloody disappointed about), and you could have got a 6 in physics. Which would have got me a 40. 

But man, considering the amount of effort I put in, this 38 is no short of miraculous. My 6 in english lit was pretty lucky, because I know my paper 2 was shit (I did not study for it) – although even if I say so my self, my IAs must have made up for it; my 6 in hindi is pretty fucking hilarious, and my 6 in economics must be a miracle because paper 1 and 3 were a disaster (but micro and macro are my favourite part of the syllabus guh). 

But I suppose I should look at the positives. I got my diploma, despite the fact that my CAS was not very satisfactory (in my opinion, of course). I got the full core points. I got an A for my VA EE in english even though I only decided my topic in the August of my senior year (and submitted it waaaay after the school internal deadline). Plus I had close to no help because my supervisor didn’t know english or any shit (he had no experience). Furthermore, I personally did better in physics than expected. Honestly thought I would get a 4 (and as time passed I thought I’d get a 33).

Even better, although I don’t get any credits for my SLs at the college I am attending, I get up to 12 credits for scoring 5 and above in my HLs, (around 3 gen ed courses fulfilled). So that means I have to do only 9 out of 12 gen ed courses. 

To put things in perspective, I got my diploma, I did better than my predicted (I’m not sure exactly how much that is, but yeah), I did get a small scholarship for college, and I am going to college. And I also did a lot better than some of the arrogant assholes in my class and some people who looked down on me because of my mediocre grades can’t say anything now hah but I really shouldn’t be petty about things.

I am happy about what I got, even if my parents aren’t.
