Homecoming’s super bittersweet because I love the school spirit and the actual dance, but shopping for a dress is super difficult. Especially when stores don’t carry my size and then there are websites where you can’t return anything. how can I order a dress online and not have the option to return it.

EVERY FCUKING TIEM I CAN’T HANDLE THIS JOKE

Some real creepy questions, I will answer any. PLEASE

Read my college app essay and tell me what to fix.

               
The prompt was to write about a time when I failed and how it affected me. I just kind of ran with this idea from something I experienced last January, but it feels kind of choppy. 

              Despite the number of hours I had spent in the conference room, its size had never seemed to matter to me until that moment. Standing at the podium in the front of the room, I took a look across the people, waiting for me to say something. My high heeled shoes were shaking against the carpet; I actually feared I would stumble sideways.

                I started to speak, reading notes from my speech I had perfected the night before while my roommates slept off another exhausting day. Instead of lavishing in the last night of the conference, though, I had made the decision to run for Chair of my committee at Model United Nations. The speech writing was only a small preview of how much work I would need to do if elected representative of my respective committee.

                When I entered Model United Nations as a sophomore, I was utterly terrified. I had joined for all of the wrong reasons, and it was hard to find a reason to look forward to three days away from home. It was especially daunting to be in the General Assembly committee with over a hundred representatives from schools across the tri-state area.

                Somehow, though, I not only survived, but I loved every moment of my time there. Going back my junior year was not even a question. I wanted to perfect my public speaking and finally shed the idea that I was shy and quiet. I set a goal for myself to be more outgoing and daring; I wanted to be the girl people looked up to during Model United Nations because of how well she handled herself in front of a crowded room.

                For all of those reasons, I had decided to run for Chair. I was running against a group of highly skilled delegates, but I had spent hours on my speech and was prepared to deliver it with the confidence of a practiced politician. It was two of the most anxiety-inducing minutes of my life, standing there with over one hundred people listening to only me.

                I delivered my speech, received their applause and returned to where the other candidates stood in the back. My two years participating in the Model United Nations had come down to one hundred and twenty seconds in front of only a small portion of the conference’s delegates. Yet, I had never been prouder.

                They announced the future Chairs during the closing ceremony that afternoon. My heart had been racing as my Chair stepped forward to announce his successor. He read the names of the new co-chairs and their leading officer.

                My name was not read.

                In that moment of sudden disappointment, a different emotion seemed to wash over me. I had overcome my own greatest fears and defied everyone’s expectations simply by running for such a position. It had never been about winning or losing. In aspiring to be Chair of my committee, I kept a promise to myself.

                I returned from my three days away with a new sense of confidence. I had spoken about myself, for myself, in front of a room full of people I did and did not know. Running for Chair was the first step in a long process of accepting myself and losing the election only increased my sense of self-confidence. I had reached for something I wanted and come short, but there would be so many more opportunities to come if I did not stop myself from striving to be the best version of myself.

Paper Towns with Paper People

I'm a hopeless romantic, an optimistic pessimist, a believer in happy endings. I like country music and long books. I'm a Ravenclaw and a nerdfighter who'd gladly spend her days at Central Perk. Any questions? Just ask. I only bite things that taste like cinnamon.
