Blessings From A Stranger, A Campus Tour, and Spanish MIT

Well guys, I just got back from my school's soccer game [we won! {bli bli bli, OK that's over}], and I decided to go ahead and finish the post from yesterday. OK, yesterday I forgot to tell ya'll this, but I received a stranger's blessing at the games Saturday from an awesome Ohio State fan. We were talking about a sign that I had been holding up during the game, and he said, "So you want to go there?" and I said, "Ohhhhh yeah." And for some random reason, he said, "Don't worry about it, I'm sure you'll get in." Then I go "O_O" and say thanks and bli on the inside. But enough about my wonderful well wishes from awesome OSU fans. Time for the real post. First, some pics I forgot to post yesterday though.

Now to the rest of my trip. Well, after all the fun at the Georgia Dome, my dad and I then went on to Georgia Tech [one of the colleges on my list, but MIT's still my number one]. Before we went on our way, we decided to walk around a bit, to simply enjoy the city, since we figured we wouldn't be back for a good long while. We saw some awesome sights, but my battery was dying. There was an awesome house near the place we walked, but I forgot to get a name or anything, nice looking though. We then passed what was some kind of art school, but I forgot to jot its name down.
[The nice house, actually in the city!]

After we finally went off to Georgia Tech, we viewed the campus, and it was actually nicer than I had expected, even though I still like MIT better, I seriously think that I might consider Ga. Tech as a possible second or third choice. The campus is truly beautiful, and if you study by meditating in a peaceful, quiet place that's surrounded by nature in general, I seriously believe that this is a definite thing to consider here. We then went to the hotel, and took a good rest. The next day, however, was also awesome since Dad and I went to the huge mall at Lenox Square, and I got to go to my first ever APPLE STORE! We also ate at what is definitely one of the best food establishments in Atlanta.

But enow about the weekend, On To The NOW! As ya'll know, I'm now home, and at my good 'ole hard-headed constantly infuriating school. Ya'll also know, even from the last post, that I really, REALLY, REALLY want to go to MIT. Sure enow, guess what I found while I was searching through my Spanish II book. MIT! Right there near the middle of the book, like a sign! [pic is so included, I took like ten, lol] I guess all there is left is to wait until the admissions staff puts up the next application/MyMIT application. Well, night's falling so I'll post some quick pics, and send ye off. Jya Ne.

Hi there! I was reading the comments left on one of the MIT student blogs and I noticed that you found out about MIT through an anime. I sort of did too actually! Hahahahahaha. What a coincidence. The anime influenced me somewhat, and I ended applying to MIT during my senior year just because. Sort of like, "oh hey, let's just apply to MIT." I didn't even really intend to until two months before the application due date. And now, I'm a student here. Hahahahaha. Anyway, I just thought it was funny that you found out about MIT through an anime too. I hope you get in next year. If you have questions about anything concerning MIT, I'll be glad to answer them, or at least try to. Hahaha.

Btw, was the anime Gundam Seed?
