girl i feel the same way!my parents are like "if u don't get into your top school and you get into other out of state schools then u might as well stay in state before moving onto those schools"ridiculous!i mean i wasn't accepted into howard(last day app:no fee money at the time) and i'm waiting on spelman but theres a chance i may not get in due to all the applicants. i've gotten into other out of state schools but they(my rents) r really trippin right now!community college isn't bad but all of us with our heads moving forward and not wanting to go to 13th grade aren't so thrilled over that choice.I hope your dad decides to change his mind because graduating from highschool is basically the next step in your adulthood and he should let you be on your own
I haven been here in a while bcuz I thought everybody forgot about this thread. So let me catch up congrats to tbaybee23, courntie have you decided on a school yet? The AUC groups on facebook are hot go there to meet some friends or a potential roommate. No I haven't received a letter yet I've been stalking the mail everyday when I get home from school knowing d**n well the mail lady don't pass till like 5. I'm not worried about balancing partying and studying in ATL bcuz I'm pretty focus. I will have fun only in my free time not when I know I have to get some work done. Welcome new members just call Netra oh yeah ashgilly I like your outfit in your avatar pic lol
OO i think i seen u in the fb groups.lol.some of u all sound the same on the posts and look the same.i've been waiting too!for all my other schools.the same mailman been gettin so frustrated w/me.hah
well excuse me...dont mean to interrupt on your 1on1 yall got goin but i wanna major in fine arts with a concentration in theater and minor in either english or broadcast journalism...
i feel english would bore me to death eventho that is my top strenght as far as academics....but i think B.J. would be soo much fun and different...and a great career to have under my belt aside from makin it as an ACTRESS
i feel you. Your not the only one whose waiting on an answer from clark.People have advised me to continue calling them in order to get any type of answer so you should do the same too. Waiting wont get us anywhere.lol
Oh no.yea that kinda sounded bad.hah.no the people that tend to want to be my friend are the ones who need the nuturing and babying.I guess i'm saying this because I was apart of my schools Peer Advocacy Program and being a school advocate exposes you to many different people. I think my decision to look at another major was based on the fact that I dont know if i'm ready to carry other peoples situations on my back.Some of the kids I helped caused me emotional distress as well and i'm debating on whether or not I can do that for the rest of my life. But thats what you give up in order to be a leader and make an impact so i guess it will just take time
But I am fond of helping others. Thats what I was meant to do. I would never turn against my community like that so I meant it as personal experience with people who are close to me in my life. The ones who feel that if they dont know where their going then I shouldnt either. Those are the people who bring me down and I cant live like that.So I understand what your saying and apologize if it may have sounded negative.hah.Its more towards certain people then my community as a whole because really, my community isnt even half as bad as other places could be.
And I agree.I surround myself with different people and dont judge others by first appearances because I know how it feels (Do onto others as you would like to be treated)There will always be people who will not fit your desired way of living but we have to live above it.Its amazing how some people are just misunderstood like you stated but on the other hand, some people look to be misunderstood..its complicated.You would have to live here.lol
Yea i'm not even from tennessee but ever since I got in, my uncle down in memphis has been tellin me how great it is.lol.but idk well c.because you know we r still waiting on other schools
AMEN!yea i did go to a college prep high school for two years(catholic private) but tuition was MAD expensive so i had to settle with my local public school starting my junior year.MISTAKE!or was it..because it showed me that i'm not always going to be surrounded by people who want to better their lives so I guess it really changed my outlook on things
It started with my first counselor when I first transferred to that school telllin ME that I was only capable of community college and that's what did it. Compared to other youth, I find myself quite intelligent and for him to tell me that I wasn't going to college, to write off my future for me soley because i was BLACK was like 12 stabs in the heart.
but i wouldn't exactly blame him. The black females at my school act under-educated almost as if they didn't come to school for education. Most of the students act that way now that I think about it. But I am so sick of people assuming that I will be a part of the stereotypes just because others are. And this guy didn't even know me!I had literally just stepped into his office. I don't need to get caught up in sterotypes because education is the ONLY key to the future for african americans (unless u spit hard or ball hard) but even so..Diddy went to Howard, Oprah went to TNstate. More of the sucessful people that we know received an education.
I'm glad I met someone like you too(online).hah!And I feel going to an HBCU will light my fire. We need to be surrounded by more people such as ourselves. Where i'm at wont cut it at all.The passing grade is a D-...enough said. I will not lower my standards because other students have and an HBCU is an outlet for youth to meet one another. Youth to meet others who value knowledge and their futures
Striving is a must gurl!thats it.haha.i feel u on the rants
yea my moms wanted me to be a lawyer i was like "huh?sike!"but i feel you.i applied to tnstate knowin oprah came from there.lol.but even though obama the prez some people think its coo now but it really isnt.to get to the top we needa strive for the best.i mean, really, that recent political comic with the chimp spoke 1000 words..
