I am going to college. Where? I have no idea yet. But I do know that Indiana University and Ball State University have both accepted my applications! Today I submitted my third application to Liberty University (a Christian school in Virginia). Adding to the exciting news Ball State has awarded me with the Presidential Scholarship– I like to think it is from the president himself, thanks Barack.
Really I am incredibly thankful, college acceptances are one of the best feelings in the world. I started EARLY, as soon as the applications were released I started filling them out. Which just means the procrastinators in my life secretly hate me. When you tell people you’ve been accepted to university you receive one of two responses based on how far along in the process they are themselves. And you never know which type of person they will be until you actually share the news, sometimes it doesn’t go over too well.
You have the ones who will celebrate with you and the ones who, well, are less celebratory and are slightly bitter.
When you announce to person type #2 that a second college has accepted:
First receiving your college acceptances letter:
Receiving your second college acceptation:
Universities fighting over you gives you a bit of confidence.
But then you remind yourself of how broke you are going to be in the future
And just when you have convinced yourself that you are going to have crippling debt for the next 30 years you are given a scholarship.
And not just any scholarship– the Presidential one.
This Office tribute post is brought to you by the impact college acceptances has had on my time management.
I may have forgotten a few minor high school assignments because I was too wrapped up in Jim and Pam’s relationship.
