Acceptance is Bliss
This is big
This is huge
Don’t freak out, but
I, Beth-el Wilson, got accepted into my dream school:
You have no idea how much of a relief it is to get that acceptance letter, because I was almost positive I would be declined! I feel like I can finally take a breath for a moment because I know where I’m going.
When I opened the email and found out, I was ecstatic. I was jumping up and down I was so excited. I didn’t want to think about how hard it would be to get an email that said they declined me.
But in some ways there is a part to getting accepted that is harder than getting declined. Two of my best friends in the whole world didn’t get accepted to BYU and I did. I don’t know why I was any different from them. I don’t know why I was chosen. But I was and they weren’t and let me tell you, it is hard. However, you just have to move on and be there for them if they need it. Don’t exchange your happiness just because someone else is sad.
Though, it also makes you wonder, what do they look for when reviewing those applications. What would make it so one person “deserves” to get in and another doesn’t? Kind of an interesting thought. Who is special enough to go to a school?! Odd how our education hierarchy is set up, isn’t it?
Well, now comes the stress of “Oh, holy crap I have to grow up now.”
But hey, we’ll deal with that as it comes.
