The Vacation Continues

Mom wants me to go visit Dartmouth while we're up here, so she had me look up tours on the website. I, of course, managed to get lost on the website, and ended up flipping through course requirements for various majors. Then I started worrying because I really don't know what I want to major in once I get to school, and then I was worried because I don't know where I want to go to school, and then I got even more worried that I wouldn't be able to even get into a school, and then I took a deep breath and wrote a blog post instead.

I just read The Mozart Season, by Virginia Euwer Wolff, which is apparently also an emo band, because when I googled Mozart Season to find the author, I got all these hits with these really mopey looking guys with awful hair. Anyways, the book was very good, although Allegra seemed far older than her twelve years to me at first, but I've thought about it, and I think I'm underestimating twelve year olds. After all, my brain was in perfectly good working order in seventh grade.

I haven't read the news in almost a week. I feel so disconnected from the world.

ooh, my cousin goes to Dartmouth! i went there to see his rugby match and tried to take a tour but only managed to see a dorm before my uncle and my cousins took my dad and me to lunch. it's a nice place, really pretty surroundings and a nice town, but cold as all get out in the winter/spring.

ha i know the feeling of underestimating children - one of the people working at the waterpark i was at today was a girl who was probably about 10. according to one of the hot lifeguards, who mraz knows from school, she could totally kick his ass at lifeguarding. haha.
