Aimless Rambling

I’m feeling positively giddy so I decided that I should post and preserve this moment. 😀 😀 😀 See what I mean? And since I don’t have anything in particular to say, I’ll just ramble for a while.

Well, a few days ago, I was flipping through the August 2008 edition of Reader’s Digest when I came across this Q&A session with Thomas Friedman, author of The World Is Flat.  This of course reminded me of my old response to that book.  Haha, fun memories.

As for colleges, I narrowed down my list to twelve (a major feat) and finished a single essay (even larger feat)! Of course, it’ll have to go under some brutal editing in the next few weeks…but at the moment, I quite like it. : D One piece of advice I can give at this point is that you shouldn’t be afraid to delete large portions or even restart an essay. At one point, I ended up deleting two thirds of mine because those parts didn’t develop the image I wanted.

On another note, the Olympics are coming up in only 4 days!!! Go international cooperation!!!!!! ^ ^

Then the interviewer calls in the accountant and asks the same question “What do two plus two equal?” The accountant says “On average, four – give or take ten percent, but on average, four.”

Then the interviewer calls in the economist and poses the same question “What do two plus two equal?” The economist gets up, locks the door, closes the shade, sits down next to the interviewer and says, “What do you want it to equal”?
