I Got In!!!!

Friday, January 06, 2012

Today I got an acceptance letter to Truman State University! It was my first pick of schools, and I just can't believe that I got in! I still have a year left at the school that I am in right now, but it just feels so good to know that I have gotten into the one school that I wanted.

I'm just a little emotional about it right now. I never would have thought that I could do this. In high school I didn't care, and barely graduated. I was near the bottom of my class, and all I cared about was drinking and going to parties. Now thirteen years later, I'm almost a straight A student, in the phi theta kappa honor society and a peer tutor.

The thing that I am most proud of is that I have done all of this on my own. I figured out what I wanted and went for it. I did all of the work to get where I am. I have never in my life done something for myself. I'm just really happy right now.

    You are an incredible woman - sometimes it just takes a little kick in the pants to get us to realize what we need to do. I'd say your pants were kicked pretty good and now you're rocking it! Be proud of yourself and know YOU DID THIS!

Now that you've found you can do something you never thought you could, imagine all the possibilities you have in front of you that you CAN achieve!
