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.
