So my life just got a whole lot crazier…
In Spring of 2018 I applied to Universities for the Fall. If you don’t already know, I’ve been going to a community college for the past year while living at home, but had to medically withdraw last semester due to my chronic illnesses. I thought I wasn’t going to have enough hours to transfer and was going to have to go back to community college for at least another semester. This was super devastating since I was really looking forward to going away to school.
Fast forward to July, I had been getting emails from one of the schools I had applied to that were saying I should sign up for transfer orientation. I assumed I was on the wrong list and shrugged it off. Then I got a voicemail from a call I missed saying the same thing, but again I didn’t think much of it. Finally on July 6th I received an acceptance letter from the college, and still I thought they must have had some mistake and accidentally sent it to me, so I decided to call the admissions office just to make sure.
Then the unexpected happened
I was accepted… for real! I was accepted with less than 30 hours because I have a 4.0 gpa from my community college. I asked the girl over and over again if she was sure, and she kept saying “yeah you’re admitted, yeah you go here.” I seriously couldn’t believe it, and honestly I still feel like it’s not true. However, I’m going to college! This is pretty last minute since classes start August 27th, but we’re going to make it work.
As excited as I am, I’m also really scared. I’ve been super sick all of 2018 so far, but especially the last three months. I was unsure if I was going to be able to go back to my community college, let alone move to another city and go to a University. However, I would never forgive myself if I didn’t at least try. Honestly this may be a horrible idea, but I really need this right now. If I can’t do it, I guess we’ll just cross that bridge when we get to it. For now I’m going to try my best to keep the worrying to a minimum and just enjoy this amazing surprise! My life has been crappy for quite a while, one upsetting event after another. It began to feel like I just wasn’t the kind of person who gets what they want. This is a huge win for me, even if it wasn’t easy or exactly the way I planned. For the first time in my life I cried happy tears, and it felt so good.
