On Wednesday, March 23, (2016), I visited the University of North Texas’s early university program, called the Texas Academy of Mathematics and Science, for an invited interview, consisting of a math test and a group interview with questions being impromptu college essays, to determine placement within the program. While I accepted the invitation to go and interview, I am not sure if I will be admitted by the time May 7 rolls around. (May 7 is when admission notices go out.) In addition, if I were accepted, I do not know if TAMS is the best choice for continuing my education. On one end, it is a great college program, but on the other hand, the various limitations of the early “college” program suggest to me that a hidden torture chamber lies within.
Tentatively, it would be best for me to presume and act as if I were to continue my education at McKinney Boyd High School. The Home of the Broncos has been a moderately enjoyable experience, and it is with concern of my academic record that I decide to remain. Perhaps it is better to be predictably sliced by La Guillotine than to be “freely” suffocated without relief, so that I may have some control over the desperation like Rodion did to Pulcheria. From here, I will see where the wind blows. Wish me luck in my future!
(P.S. You can tell that my juxtaposition of English references to a reflective blog post concerning a math and science academy is ironic.)
