College!So it's official! I'm going to college. I've decided to not wait for my possible acceptance from RIT to make a final decision thanks to my recent trip to Seattle. I will be attending DigiPen Institute of Technology in the fall to study Computer Science in Real-Time Interactive Simulation. This is a major milestone and my mom is still psychotic about every aspect of me going to college (mainly $ and distance) but it's okay I'm happy that I was able to make my choice and in retrospect DigiPen is the cheapest non in-state school I applied to. Like even though University of Southern California gave me an $11000 scholarship that doesn't even cover housing. So... yeah. This means I will literally be moving across the country in less than a year. I can't wait but at the same time I can't believe it. I wish I felt more excited but whenever I mention DigiPen I get the "Digi-what?" face so it kind of ruins it. Oh well. I think it's going to be a fun four years :)
Never realized...I knew Geoff has been through Eatontown, NJ but I didn't realize he was actually in NJ for a long time. He was stationed at Fort Monmouth which is in my town. And while looking online at the Asbury Park Press I saw an article on Red VS Blue and Geoff.

Scholarship Hunting SeasonI figure I have $160,000 of future debt to cut down on so I'm scholarship hunting. I've already applied to a bunch and I'm in the process of applying to several others. My sister is in like $200,000+ debt from undergraduate and graduate school so I'm going to attempt to not do that.
