Behold perhaps the most exciting piece of mail I’ve ever received:
Hooray!!!! I honestly didn’t expect to hear back from the schools I applied to so soon, and I did a pretty good job of pushing it out of my mind. New Paltz was my #1 choice, and the first school I heard back from (not counting a weird email from my safety school that said something like “as an accepted student…” I was like, is this how you’re telling me?). When Dan handed me the big envelope, I was trying not to freak out. I was fairly certain it was an acceptance packet, but I seriously wasn’t sure if I could handle a rejection. Thankfully, it was not. I am so excited. It hasn’t even completely sunk in yet!
I’m immediately in moving mode. I have already began sorting through my things to decide what to get rid of to make moving easier. I’m not excited about leaving this apartment; it’s so perfect for us. I’m sure we’ll find something awesome in New Paltz, though! Dan went to NP for grad school, so he lived there for two years and is so excited to go back. Life is very exciting right now. As soon as I finish up my semester, I am heading to Iowa to visit friends and family, then my last month of dumb work at the coffee shop, then moving to New Paltz, then visiting Austria!! Yowza!
As if things weren’t going awesomely enough, I had a snow day today! The best part was that by the time I would have left for class, the snow had stopped and the sun was shining. Awesome freebie day! After nearly dying from shoveling (we got over a foot, and it was really heavy), I utilized the day off to wrap up filing taxes and filling out financial aid paperwork.
Now I’m off to have dinner and a movie with Dan to enjoy our bonus night together.
