Term 2: Waiting Game

  • by

Dear Asian Youth,

I don’t know if any of you have watched college decision videos, but I sure have. I used to stay up watching those videos – as a senior writing college apps, they were a source of motivation, comfort, and enjoyment. I dreamed of getting into college ED1 without having to worry about my senior year. Unfortunately, due to COVID-19 safety precautions and rejection from my ED1, I can’t go out with friends and celebrate my senior year, and there is no comfort in being rejected from my dream college. My Term 1 just ended. The last of my grades got sent off to college. Now, I’m left with tons of time.
