The ESSAY filter is now being renamed to the "School Help" filter. My college essay is now done and in; full version to be posted soon. Margaret Bauer, my kata partner's sister, who got in to Washington U., says I did better than she did. A pre-emptive "Thanks" to those of you who helped, whether I get in or not!
The Metaphysical filter remains; I simply haven't posted to it for a while. This filter, like the "School Help" filter, is open; just ask if you want to see the Even Weirder(TM) parts of my already odd life.
My closed filters have not gotten any posts, so you're not missing anything.
