This may be yet another pathetic attempt of mine at creating a journal. Perhaps the recent influence from Bram Stoker’s Dracula has pushed me to this.
I am currently amidst deciding on college applications. Ah, the cruel agony! To take or not to take, words derived from great Shakespearean art.

Sadly, I did not take the SATs. Fear was within me and I could not bring myself to the task. Ah well, I have applied to four colleges in my country. All that is left is to hope for the best.

Why couldn’t I bring myself to do it? Was there fear and if there was, where then? Perhaps I was insecure. Am I afraid of failure? The inability to correctly put my thoughts out is painful and it keeps me vocally silent. Yet, here in this paper and in my mind, I can never be silenced. Why? Am I hiding behind false personas? If I am, someone help me.

I rarely ever do take the time to write. I have just finished rereading the previous entry. My, I do seem quite strange. Today though I feel this entry shall suffice.

It did not only take quite a while before my brother arrived to visit for New Year, it is also taking quite a long time for the year to end. As of late, I haven’t been sleeping much and I haven’t much trouble. Although now as the new year approaches I feel oddly tired. Now, I scribble away as I try to remain awake.

Prom is done.
My friends and I rented a room in a hostel across the street from the prom venue. Blah blah blah make-up, dress up whatever. Prom. My roommates are asleep and we have laughed each to death.

We have our periodical exams coming up. So soon after prom. I am annoyed today. It’s like the periodical exams are saying “Up yours, kid!” Well, up yours too.

Well, Graduation happened today. Wooo! Recognition yesterday. Finally got that out. It’s funny when you say you won’t cry and you’re one of the first to bawl.
