The four people left on earth who aren’t totally sick of hearing about Amy Chua will be thrilled to learn that her daughter, the eighteen-year-old Sophia Chua-Rubenfield, has started a blog. Apparently practicing piano for eighty-five hours a week under the eagle eye of a tyrannical MILF is sufficient grounds for digital masturbation. (Eh, blogs have been started for worse reasons. A certain IvyGate managing editor remembers her eighth-grade LiveJournal and weeps.)
The blog currently features just a handful of posts, but it’s already got plenty of readers, most of them law students. Which is not at all creepy. And just in case anyone still harbors any illusions about Ms. Chua-Rubenfield’s aspirations–i.e., in case anyone still thinks she’d deign to go to Dartmouth–the Tiger Cub clears up the mystery of her college ambitions in her very first post:
To set the record straight, I applied to three schools last fall: Yale, Harvard, and University of Virginia. I was accepted to Yale under Early Action in December. I withdrew my application from UVA, and I was accepted to Harvard this Wednesday. I was shocked and thrilled to receive both acceptances, and I’m seriously considering both Yale and Harvard. Ashley’s or J.P. Licks…Toad’s or The T…tough call (although I am a huge fan of subways). I’ll keep you posted.
Hmm. Impotent football team or impotent football team? Red bumper sticker or blue bumper sticker? Douchebags wearing blazers and smoking cigars on bridges in Cambridge, or douchebags wearing boat shoes and smoking Parliaments on their dirty New Haven fire escapes? This will be the toughest decision of your life, young Chua padawan. Frankly, we’re a little surprised that the baby tiger had no interest in Princeton. (Except, if we think about it for 0.4 seconds, we’re actually not.)
