Early Fall Start
Lol, I’m at a dilemma. My UW roommate is considering doing my school’s “Early Fall Start.” Essentially, it’s like a one-month summer school. One class, etc. Though it costs like an extra thousand, and I do sacrifice one month of summer.
Has anyone ever taken the program?
How was your experience?
Anonymous asked: Why did you turn down UC Davis and UC Santa Barbara for your University of Washington school in Seattle? Wouldn't you have saved a lot more money by going to one of those UCs? And what about UC Irvine?
I don’t know.
I probably turned them down, because I ended up falling in love with my school and I feel there are more opportunities at my school. But I’m not sure. Either way, all three schools emphasize graduate studies and research.
And I’m not sure about UC Irvine, but it would be nice to get accepted. Same with Cal Poly.

Took my AP English Literature Exam today and not feeling too great about it. So I was thinking about all the stuff I read this year and just realized how much I read;
- The Bell Jar
- Pride and Prejudice
- The Awakening
- Fathers and Sons
- The Yellow Wallpaper
- One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest
- A lot of poems
- The Metamorphosis
- The Stranger
Got to say I liked most of the books, personally I only found The Awakening, Fathers and Sons, Pride and Prejudice, and Beowulf difficult to comprehend. I found Grendel to be the most tiring to analyze. And I found all these books depressing, but it opened my eyes to like how much life sucks LOL. Hard to pick a favorite, but The Stranger, The Bell Jar, Frankenstein, and Grendel the most interesting.
All in all, my experience with AP English was really good. I absolutely love my teacher and I always felt guilty about being sleepy/tired in this class. Even though half the time I did not know what I was doing, I think taking this class definitely improved my writing — especially under stressful conditions (procrastination), and my teacher’s sense of humor. If there is one teacher I am definitely going to miss, it’s going to be Mr. Ansaldo.
