Okay, so the all-capital-lettering of this entry probably gave away how EXCITED I AM!! I just received an email telling me I have been accepted into the highly prestigious Creative Writing study program which only takes about 16 students per year! This year there were more applicants than ever before, a little over a hundred. I can't believe I got in!!! It's a dream come true for me. I have spent so many nights laying in bed dreaming about this. I'm not even kidding. It's such a wonderful opportunity to improve as a writer and to start meeting the right people. I'm already majoring in Literature and now I'm going to minor in Creative Writing. I feel like I'm finally headed in the right direction: after so many detours and false starts, I'm finally right where I need to be. I'm so happy right now. I'm making my dreams come true and I just know I will be a published author one day! I'm going to work really hard and I know it'll pay off in the end.

This couldn't have come at a better time. I really needed to be reminded that there is so much to be happy and excited about! Right now, all I can say is that I couldn't be happier. I feel so blessed and grateful. I'm sorry if this entry is all over the place and incoherent, but my head is spinning right now.

Anyway, I just wanted to share this with you! :)

(Oh, and for those of you who might be interested and do not already know, I study at the University of Turku, in Finland.)

    Congratulations Emilia!! That's amazing news! Sounds like you are getting back on track not just with your fitness but with this AMAZING news!! So happy for you!

I am going to Copenhagen next week - i know it is probably a long way from Turku but if you are near (or Malmo - we will visit for a day) then it would be fun to meet you!

When do you start the creative writing course?
