Finally, a Good Day: I Got Accepted!

As you might've guessed from the title of the post, I have been accepted for transfer to one of the three universities/colleges I have applied to. Oh, I didn't mention this? Yeah. I didn't want to say which schools I applied to until I got word (acceptance or rejection) from them. I will give hints: two of them are here in Southern California (one Catholic, the other a State university) and the third was my dream university (the University of British Columbia in Vancouver, Canada). I don't have to think about where I'm going to attend. I already made plans on accepting the admissions offer from this particular school.

I'm also happy to say that I received a phone call from the counselor in charge of transfer admissions to let me know that because of my GPA (nerd alert! nerd alert!), I was eligible for some of their bigger scholarships. Thank God that I may get a good amount because this school is expensive (and that now narrows it down to the private, Catholic college and UBC) and I don't want to graduate with such a huge debt -- especially since I am paying for it myself.

Needless to say, I am HAPPY! I wasn't sure I would get in because of the increasingly competitive students applying for next Fall, but I am glad that my hard work has paid off thus far. I ended up baking my first vegan cake (since I am allergic to both dairy and eggs) in celebration... and it came out awesome, if I do say so myself. lol.

Hopefully all of this is the start of something better because I've had such a hellish couple of years (2006 to the present). *fingers crossed*

Alright, that's all for now. I am still on that quest to finish everything early so I can have a longer Spring Break vacation. Whoo hoo! :D

I hope everyone is doing well. :D

As always, thanks for reading and God Bless!
