Also, those people who are LJ-famous - for being pretty or good writers or having interesting careers or posting naked pictures of themself or whatever. Do you read any 'famous' LJ's? Do you have a favorite?
I chose University of Michigan because it's huge and that's what I want. Whatever I decide I want to do, odds are it'll have a strong program. I'm not worried about getting lost. Plus, in my opinion, it's one of the top universities in the country, public or private. But that's just my opinion.
Also, I just fell in love with it. I know what I want and I wanted Michigan. Plus, Zingerman's! That's a plus right there.
I read theferrett occasionally because he's hilarious. I also read squigglz' tales of woe about being a stripper because I find them interesting.
