Topics I've Started

So did you fall for it?

You should have seen some of the spam I got.. -__-" But I figured it'd be best to leave some of it out..

Yummy, college.

Okay, the "personal statement" is comprised of two essays. These are the prompts:
QUOTE
1. Describe the world you come from — for example, your family, community or school — and tell us how your world has shaped your dreams and aspirations.
2. Tell us about a personal quality, talent, accomplishment, contribution or experience that is important to you. What about this quality or accomplishment makes you proud and how does it relate to the person you are?


This is my response to the second prompt:

I do not plan on wasting the time of someone who reads thousands of essays by telling them that, yet again, another dedicated, focused, talented, intelligent, fair, open-minded student wants to apply to the Universities of California. In fact, from what I have seen through visiting the campuses and dorms, I can tell that these educational facilities admire diversity and uniqueness. Therefore, I feel compelled to tell the truth about what I take pride in, while leaving out any cliché qualities regardless of how applicable they may be to me.

The quality that I see as my most admirable is my ability and determination to eat a large cheeseburger in a small amount of time. The first bite, it seems, is always the easiest. During this mouthful, I am always excited about my bold decision and looking forward to the feelings of relief and triumph once the deed is done. I am, at this point, always enthusiastic; however, I do realize that this parcel of food must be taken bite by bite; in small amounts that I can easily handle.

Sometimes, however, if I am feeling particularly adventurous, I may take a bite much larger than I should have. In this case, I refuse to spit it out based on my commitment to this goal; I still chew through it and let it settle as it slowly inches down my throat. Although this may be difficult, I am able to get through it, while still admiring the taste and being thankful for the lasting effect.

Near the end, however, it seems nearly pointless: I have experienced what it tastes like, I have gotten through that large bite, and now I feel as if there is nothing left to experience. However, despite this feeling, I remind myself of my promise and past excitement; of the rewards I will gather. Thus, I continue on.

Finally: the last bite is safely in my grasp. I raise it to my mouth, proud but still aware of the work it will take to complete. Gently, I place it inside my mouth, chewing slowly, remembering all that I have gone through in the process; confident that I will succeed; and savoring the textures and tastes. Slowly, I begin to swallow this last remaining morsel, proud that I was able to pull myself through it.

I glance around the table for a napkin to wipe my face. As I clean up the mess made by this accomplishment, I give a sigh of relief; the sigh I had been anticipating from the beginning. However, I go to place the napkin on my tray, prepare to depart, and discover something I happened to neglect: ahead of me, I have an order of fries to complete, tenfold the size with tenfold the threat of that cheeseburger.


Don't read these following words until after the essay!:

So basically, this whole story is supposed to be an extended metaphor for how I possess, after all, yet another cliché quality: dedication. This "cheeseburger" is actually high school while the impending doom of fries is college. It was my sister's idea to make it about a cheeseburger and I adapted that into an extended metaphor.


So.. could you tell that was what it meant? What do you think about it? Haha, I was excited while I was writing this. mush1z.gif

New character? Not likely.

So, I'm fairly obsessive compulsive when it comes to looking at various people on the rankings. This one girl put up an smega, and I searched her on the rankings and saw this:



I remember a while ago nexon re-added a lot of people that had been banned to the rankings..

Buut.. I searched at least 50 pages of rankings both above and below her (probably a lot more than that) and didn't see anyone else with the "new" icon. Discuss??

P.S. I really hate posting new topics on here now because I always feel like someone's going to call me stupid or reprimand me because this topic was made five years ago, "duh, why couldn't you find it?!" or because this topic is pointless. So I'm sorry if you think I'm stupid, it's just that mt is the only forum, not to mention the only ms-related forum, I talk on and my friends/guildies on ms aren't active at all enough to ask them questions like this. So yeah.

Yeah, no thanks.

So I was all happy on ms earlier. Woo, more mt friends. People who actually talk. So I go to fog to see Aqua, but he died (haha, gj). So I got his level. Or something like that. It was empty, so I took it.

So I was training. Woo, training. I got.. maybe 10% and some a**hole hermit named Maoran comes and tries to take my level. I figure maybe he didn't see me, so I say "please cc" and he doesn't respond. Just stays there. So I wait a little, thinking, "well, maybe he's just taking a long time to pass through?" So I say, once again "please cc.." and he doesn't respond. "PLEASE CC!" and he says "ur a fighters omglolzwtfatagfkss go to top lvls" (I might be exaggerating a little) as he's sitting there getting mobbed, throwing punches because he can't get a spot to throw some stars because there are too many monsters for this poor wittle level 72 hermit with only 51 fame. So I say "I was here first," or something like that

So I just stay there. He can barely ks me because he sucks so much. What level 72 throws tons of stars in the wrong direction? I mean yeah, once is a mistake, twice, three times, forgivable. But he did it A LOT.

So since he can't ks me, he calls over some other theif-related friend and some mage to HELP him get some level 57's spot that he couldn't take on his own because he sucks so much. So I figure, maybe my new mt friends can help cheer me up; invite me somewhere else so I have a reason to leave. Nope. No on responds to my pleas. So I defame him. He defames me, of course. But I still have 6 more fame than him and I'm 15 levels lower and probably 10x less popular.

So thanks guys. Love ya too. I probably won't be playing ms for a while. And I probably won't be on mt either.

So see you whenever.

That's a long server check!
