College and Clone Wars

Well that’s an odd mix.  For the record, they’re separate topics.

In the past few months, I have been ramping up my college work as the application deadline draws nearer.  We finished visiting colleges, and now we’re just returning to some of them for interviews.  I have a list of about twelve colleges where I’m applying.  Most recently, I’ve been addressing envelopes for teacher recommendations and school forms.  Can you believe you need four stamps per school envelope?  That’s like … a lot of stamps!  Also part of the process is writing a “brag sheet” for my school’s college counselor to use in writing my recommendation.  It was interesting to create that document, as it essentially summarized all my non-academic activities from the past few years onto a single sheet of paper.

Now on to the fun stuff.  Recently I was offered the incredible opportunity to write The Clone Wars reviews for the popular Star Wars website TheForce.Net.  I, of course, jumped at the chance.  The two-episode premiere was last Friday, and I was prepared.  I took copious notes, wrote up lengthy posts, and published them on Saturday.  I have already received numerous emails with positive feedback – and even one correction.  I am very proud to be part of the best team in Star Wars news.  Look for my reviews here every Saturday.
