21 - 12 - 20

I made gingerbread cookies yesterday. They were really good. We usually buy a stale gingerbread house to build and make sugar cookies nobody likes. I used the sugar cookie cutters to make little gingerbread people, trees, and snowflakes. It feels nice to be able to break out of these traditions that we only do because we feel like we have to. I'm planning ahead with my dad for christmas dinner, and I'm in charge of desserts. Of course they want a main course with meat, so I have no idea what fancy vegetarian festive meals I can make when I move out. But I get to make a ton of desserts, so I guess it's worth it. Idk what I'm writing about, this is all a bunch of bullshit. I'm just stressed out about applying to colleges. I'm trying to figure out how to answer the short answer questions for UNC and UC Boulder. Then I have to start my applications for Uni of Toronto, Uni of British Columbia, and McGill. Fuck.

College applications weren't that stressful for me, as long as you made decent grades you'll get accepted to most schools you apply to. What's more stressful from having experienced both, is the college loans and student loan debt you'll have to deal with if you don't have a scholarship and if you pick a major that doesn't guarantee a good salaried job. College life can also be stressful, I hope you continue writing your journals here and seek advice if you want some.

I ended up not moving out, I still live with my parents, and I pay for the mortgage and groceries. They eat vegan meals because of me and my mom is the only one that eats meat still (but way less than before). It took years to convince them though, but watching some vegan movies like Game Changers and videos every now and then helped convince them over time.

@JustMegawatt Thank you that means a lot to me :) I'm leaning towards psychology so I'll probably need a scholarship lol. I'm not extremely worried though, I have financial support from my parents (they're gonna pay for half of my tuition!!) and I'm probably going to go to a smaller local uni to save money, since at that level of education it shouldn't really matter where I go. Thanks for the movie rec I'll check it out!
