I'm IN!

I got accepted to Georgetown University! I am so elated, and I can't even describe what I'm feeling right now. I filed my grad school application before I flew to Hawaii for Christmas. I wasn't so sure I was going to be accepted as I felt that my essay was lousy. I received their letter yesterday, and since it was thin, I thought it was a rejection letter. In the tradition of applying for college, a thick (a welcome packet) or thin letter sort of tells you if you got accepted to a university of your choice or not. When I got the letter, I actually threw it on the dining table and proceeded to cook dinner. It took me a few hours of self convincing to open the letter and get the "rejection feeling" over with. So I did, to my surprise it read, "I am pleased to inform you that you have been accepted in the Georgetown University Liberal Studies Program..." I was silent for a moment, but I guess it took a few minutes to sink in before a huge smile formed on my face. It's that feeling of assurance that something good is happening. I want to relish this good feeling before the serious studying begins.

  6. wow! congratulations kayni! good job!!!

    your initial reaction when you threw the envelope and went to cook dinner instead made me laugh, ha ha ha!

    sounds fun to be back to school: campus environment, new friends, books, weird professors, he he, hanging out to do group projects,libraries, sitting and reading in campus lawns,-- all these make me miss uni..

    look forward!

  7. The agony and the ecstasy analogy.

    You did the right to ignore the letter and had negative thoughts first. I've always done that most of my life, whether being told to see the boss or getting a letter from home. The negative thoughts sets in first, followed by the good news. It's a simple psychology I employ to my inner self.

    However, a big congrats to attaining a more higher education, and that's not an easy feat.
