Ok. I'm risking being called an arrogant nutcase but.... ok, in the Duke TIP thing I was 20 POINTS AWAY FROM GETTING A NATIONAL AWARD. 20 points. I am so crushed. So crushed. And that would have been so amazing for high school application. I mean, I have state, but it's not the thing. National was my goal. And I had thought I had probably made it. But I just found out I missed it by 20 points. Oh, and I had a crappy day socially to get into that whole mess. But I don't want to repeat the joke about me my idiot friend decided was so funny. Anyways, whenever someone has a bad day... this is your thread to post in.
