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.)
