This year, Riverdale Country School asks of prospective high school students:

If you created your own blog, what would your topic and title be, and how would you describe the look of it?

I tried to imagine back when I was in 8th grade.  How surprising life is.  Who would have thought?  Would I have answered:

I would like to create a blog about how to achieve peace in the Middle East.

or, what really happened

I would like to create a blog about New York City private school admission.  It would be called Abacus Mom and deal with questions like how to get into Riverdale.
