Bleh bleh bleh I'm sick. I haven't gotten "sick" in a while. My nose seems to be perpetually stuffy, but this time I've got all the symptoms, annoying sore throat included. To sooth my burning tonsils I've been drinking a looot of water, and as a result, have gone to the bathroom a total of 14 times today.
Part of the reason why I haven't been around Nutang more often (how am I still in the same Most Active spot as when I left?) is because I've been trying real hard to be productive and fill out more scholarships. There are so many perfect ones out there...for Latinos. And African Americans. And Native Americans. And Indian Americans. But are there any for Muffy? No. Because Muffy is WHITE and ASIAN. I'm trying to fund my education like the rest of the college-bound community, and it's frustrating when I can't apply to half the shit out there because my skin is not "of the appropriate complexion."
I had more to say, but blogging is exhuasting, as is being up at 1:30 waiting for your sheets to get out of the dryer. Night folks, Muffy over and out
Do not try to bend the spoon. That's impossible. Instead, try to realize the truth. There is no spoon. Then you will see that it is not the spoon that bends, it is only yourself.
Welcome to the fucking club. What minority you've got in you is fucking "model," so nothing's gonna come your way.

I feel you, B. I couldn't get any scholarship to sent myself to a university of my choice in UK is because I'm a Chinese and I want to study in the UK. There are many scholarships out there for undergraduate courses in the Malaysian Unis but it's a well known fact that if you're Chinese you'd probably be given a space for your 4th or 5th choice of study when you go to a Malaysian Uni. With me wanting to take accounting and finance course, the chances of me getting a scholarship is even lower! *rolls eyes*
Hurry up and get well because it sucks to be sick!

I probably got you sick, too. I know I got ranor sick from commenting on his blog and sending him texts. You probably got my illness because I coughed all over the shout box. I have some kind of flu, which is not fair, because I totally got a flu shot. WHAT?!
Maybe you can try and see if you are like 1/64 Native American, or if you ancestors came over on the Mayflower, or if you are left handed. My one friend got a scholarship because he was interested in ham radios. Sometimes there are scholarships for these things. Or there are always loans, yes, loans, where ironically being white or asian might finally be an advantage.

Ahh get well soon! And good luck with the scholarship hunt ^__^ !

Having the ability to acquire loans is a bit of a dubious advantage. I mean, yes, that will allow you to finance your education, but believe me: it's not fun to have to pay them back.
$40000 is a total bitch...

Grr. Enjoy your break.. **evil squint**
Scholarships are a pain to look for sometimes. I think I found one for people who are LEFT-HANDED. Have you tried fastweb.com? Worth a shot.
Anyways, feel better! :)

ugh, sometimes it's a pain in the rear being white. funny thing is, you're most likely darker than me. my legs glow in the pool, no kidding. lol water is good for you ... going to the bathroom 14 times in a day, annoying.
re: I know! it kind of all happened at once. I'm actually going to be writing about it at some point today, but I need to find the time just in case it's long ...

I'm not even Asian.
Though my mom being Puerto Rican might be handy. Hmm...
What school wants Zolp? Lol.
My day yesterday can be summed up with the phrase "Anal vomit". Look it up on Urban Dictionary. I wrote the definition. :-/
» middaymoon on 2008-03-31 06:50:21
i thought there r scholarships to all applicants regardless of ethnicity?

Why are we not a minority? Bc apparently, we are, but we're not. Arrrrrrrrgh!
I've almost suffocated on several occasions today, yesterday, yesteryesterday--and right before I sleep. Like I can't get any air for a sec and then air comes, stops, comes. It's like what the heck?! I've managed to not have pop-y ears. Go me.

and why do i only get like three comments
but you have a hundred? *say anything un-flattering and i'll kill you* =D

I'm white, and more white. The main reason I'm not screwed is because I was part of the first group to take the new SAT... which no admissions folks understood fuck about... so I got hella dollars in merit-based aid.
BTW, as you begin to go through this system of hoops known as your college life, please consider the rules for living I have based upon my own (soon to end) experience. Don't worry about money, because you can always make more with a little work. Study something you like, because the degree (BSci or BArt) matters more than the major. And don't forget that college, like everything else, is a game. Analyze the system, work a strategy, and you will do fine.
Maybe focus on getting well first...

Hey muffy! I LOVE your new page. Not to say that they whole Neo thing was boring but this is so fresh! Is that an old saying? I meant that this is awesome!

Class is so big that professors don't care; they don't even care when they see you walk out and leave early. I'm still not officially enrolled in that math class anyways, i'm on the waitlist. but yeah, it's a weird situation. i've always got friends that'll help with math if i need some. haha :D
oh. and i didnt notice the last line in your blog. I AGREE, blogging is exhausting! but its the price to pay to update your buddies! :D

I've also designed a fish launcher. Feel the awesomeness that is the fish launcher. Taste it. It wants you to.
It also cures tonsillitis in seven easy steps, and it's dishwasher safe.

Well, technically golems don't exist on their own. They have to be created by a mage or sorcerer or something...
» randomjunk on 2008-04-02 07:40:43
haha yeah, im just getting some general ed requirements out of the way since i havent chosen a major.. i cant take classes for my major yet.
start learning the ins and outs of college! :P

I'd say preferential treatment for scholarships is a very small price to pay for centuries of slavery, decades of disenfranchisement, and two generations lost for Blacks --- not to mention the genocide our nation inflicted upon native americans -- where many hispanics draw half of their ancestry to.
It isn't fair.. but then again, when has America ever been fair?
