I don’t think I have the right amount of words, nonetheless the right words in general, to explain how overwhelmed and stressed I am when it comes to completing my college apps. Honestly, writing two personal statements showing how much impact an event or my community such as friends & family had on my life has been challenging. I don’t know how to talk about myself positively, making the UCs and Art Schools want me… I can’t even keep a positive mentality when it comes to these applications. I have my topics down, but the actual “writing it down”—I can’t; it’s as if I have this boulder that just blocks my thoughts from actually reaching my paper… I just need an extra push, this extra motivation to get down to work & finish it before the deadline. I have to. My future is on stake… In my opinion, dramatic as it may seem.
