I am so happy right now :')

Though I haven't been as active as I used to be I still lurk here daily! And I just wanted to let all you know that you have been a big part of my life, believe it or not, for the last three years I have been a member here. I respect almost all your opinions so dearly, and so many of you have provided me such sound advice over the years!

Congrats man. Good luck with school.

jrdrylie 12-01-2011 04:15 PM

Congrats man. Virginia is a great school. And in my experience, having a full ride to college makes it sooooo much better. More money for beer and dates with women.

I don't know you at all, but that is seriously a great accomplishment. You must have busted your ass and I congratulate you.

UVA is an excellent school and if you play your cards right, you can make some seriously awesome connections there. Lots of old money families and other rich people go there.

Work it.

ATLDirtyBirds 12-01-2011 04:21 PM

Very fratty school, FWIW.

MetSox17 12-01-2011 04:27 PM

That's great, man, congratulations. Now imagine how far you'd get if you weren't a douche guido.

Malaka 12-01-2011 04:33 PM

Well ATL we'll see if I'll be a EDIT: GID (GDI lol) (God Damn Independent), I leaning towards that honestly.

And Metsox I have since changed my ways, no longer do I have the short fade nor do I wear any chains nor do I wear my shirts unbuttoned by more than three buttons (I still go with two... sometimes). But you're right imagine where I could have been if I didn't waste away my freshman year getting wasted all the time.

Regardless lol thanks for the congrats guys.

vidae 12-01-2011 04:33 PM

Wow, congrats dude! Awesome accomplishment! Remember, partying and getting laid is awesome (and totally part of the college experience) but it's also a lot of hard work. Make sure you balance your priorities correctly and you're in for the time of your life.

ElectricEye 12-01-2011 04:42 PM

Hey, that's a serious accomplishment man and an absolutely fantastic school(Football program is coming up too). Congratulations. I hope you enjoy your time there.

Don't worry I'll take the annual ass whooping like a man hahahaha. But the program is on the up and up, I was reading about the Head Coach seems like a good guy for the job.

Giantsfan1080 12-01-2011 05:12 PM

According to US News and World Report the University of Virginia's homosexual population will increase by 19% in 2012. Nice work Malaka

The National College Match is an alternative, generally binding, application process for high-school seniors. The College Prep Scholarship offers juniors awards, including various resources to facilitate the college application process.[1]
Odd. I'm pretty sure Malaka would make it rain in his guido days, and drove a Benz or something. Not sure we have the same definition of low-income.

My father passed away since those times, a lot of things have changed since then, and my mom has never held a job. So yeah, I had two paths to go down keep being a douche bag and disrespect my father's memory, or do a total reversal of fortune and make him proud posthumously.

A lot of things have changed since I was dubbed the Josh Freeman of Guidos. I am also very grateful for Questbridge for giving me this amazing opportunity.

Thanks everyone for all the praise! I really appreciate.

Boe you always make me laugh, lol, I guess there will be homosexuals but everything I have read about the student body, at least the females, is awesome ;)

btw for any questions about it

TheBoyWonder22 12-01-2011 05:37 PM

Hell yeah! Way to go bro!

Malaka 12-01-2011 05:44 PM

Brent as for football, my coach got fired my senior year. There was no offseason workout program, and well I just naturally slimmed down to 162 from my playing weight of 178... I doubt any school wants a 6'1 162 pound 4.8/4.9 Linebacker, so I didn't play my senior season I devoted it to scholarships and academics which I can proudly say worked.

I might ask the new coach at my school if I can join his weight-lifting program and see if I can't gain back my playing weight, and maybe try to walk-on. It's a long shot but so was this scholarship, and everything else I have done to turn my life around. I might just do it.

Get ripped/jacked before heading to college, yes. But don't walk on. Focus on schoolwork/easy campus job(for spending money)/parties.

Well I am getting that first part done, I got a membership at a gym just last week, and I got a job at a place opening in 20 days. Life is good right now :)
