Everyone thinks that I don’t need to worry about college acceptances. Everyone thinks that I don’t need to worry about scholarships. They think that just because I’m a minority, I’m going to get everything I want.
Well newsflash people, I just received my 6th rejection from a scholarship. And the worst part is, this one truly mattered to me, and quite honestly, I thought I had it. I thought I would at least have the chance to move onto the next level. My essays were killer and I worked my ass off on them. I’m just so tired of getting cheated of so many things. I don’t even know what I’m doing wrong at this point. I don’t know what I did wrong to deserve all of these rejections. I’m just so tired of trying to stay positive when every month, I find out that another attempt to make my four years of work worth something is shot down and drained of the value I thought it had. I’m just. so. tired.
