I have waited for a very long time for this day! I can remember as far back as elementary school, dreaming about going to college. Long story short, I just recently applied for admissions to a community college. I got my acceptance letter on Tuesday! (You’re probably wondering why it took me so long to tell you.) I was so excited! Yeah, it’s just community college, but it’s such a huge thing for me. Last night as I was sitting on my bed reading the letter again, I was overcome with emotion. This has taken so long but it is FINALLY here!
For years, people have asked me where I went to college (since I am that age) and I have always had to reply “I don’t go to college”. I know it’s not something that everyone has to do, but it’s been one of my biggest desires. I always felt so disappointed when I had to give that answer. Now I can say “I go to THIS college!”
I’m nervous. I have to take a placement test because it’s been SO long since I graduated high school. Will I do ok? Will I be able to figure all this stuff out? Thankfully my sister is going to the same school and has been for about a year now. She’s been really supportive of my going, as my husband has too. Now I just have to get all my paperwork filled out, pick my classes, and start my college career! YAY!!
For those of you who have been to college, are in college now, or maybe just dream about going to college, please give me any advice, tips, etc. I’m sure I’ll need all I can get!
