“I just assumed I wasn’t going to go.”

The year I thought college was out was my senior year of high school. Everyone was talking about going to college and I was like, “Oh, I can’t do that.” You know, “I’m not going to be good enough to do that.” So I was really, like, sad about not being able to go to college. I didn’t – I just assumed I wasn’t going to be able to go. I didn’t even bring it up to my mom, so I’m just walking around, moping around. And finally I bring it up to my mom and she’s like, kind of just understanding where I’m coming from. So we started to look it up. I was trying to not get too excited about anything.

We ended up finding, like, enough scholarships for me to be able to go to school and not even have to pay the money back. So then it went from being, like, depressed, moping person to like, completely elated, excited person. Like, it totally changed my outlook my senior year. All that stuff. Like, I was so excited. I got some scholarships and then it was like, “Yay! Now I got into the school, and I can afford it,” so I was pretty stoked. We did like – I’m pretty weird or whatever [She gets up and dances] so I had like, a dance. So I did like a dance with my mom – [Sits] going to college dance. So, whatever. [Laughter]
