I guess I'll tell you guys what's been rocking my world lately...

I just found out through the mail that I've been accepted into my #1 school, California Institute of Technology!!!!

So, yeah, now I'm still freaking out, but sooooo exciting!!!!

YAYAYY!!!

To provide some sort of topic for discussion though, does anyone have any suggestions about college life (i.e.- stuff to bring, stuff to keep in mind, etc)?

And is anyone out there going to pre-frosh weekend?

I dunno.

How do you answer that question?

Basic stats:
18, male.
Program occasionally...
...do lots of art. Theatre too.

lol. Not much here for conversation, I guess I just wanted to shout out to the world that I got in, and you were the unlucky person to take the brunt of that. [Smile]

Nice job!

I got in for grad school but decided CU Boulder was a better fit. CU's RNA dudes haven't retired yet. [Razz]

It's a reference to a Stallone movie (temporarily forgotten which one). The one where he gets thawed out to deal with criminals in the future.

Demolition Man, where it is predicted that Arnold will become President. What's scary is that it's starting to look that that might happen. [Eek!]

Arnold can't be President (of the USA, anyway) without an amendment to the Constitution. He's not a native-born citizen. I'm pretty sure that trying to pass such would cause a little grumbling amongst the Merkins.

In the movie it took something like the 37th amendment to do it. I know it wouldn't be easy, but I think that amendment would be more likely to happen than the "No Gay Marriage" amendment currently being debated.

"you can take this job, and you can shovel it"

Ironically, Demolition Man is the exact opposite of another stallone futuristic movie: Death Race 2000, with David Carradine.

Though of course he has come out and said publicly that he would support such an amendment, can't imagine why he would support such a thing...

Oh and welcome [Smile]
