It's amazing...when there is just that one thing you've been hoping and waiting for, and you know you have a chance at it, and you know you've done all that you can, and you don't want to get your hopes up, nor give up hope in case your negativity will affect the outcome...and you kind of feel like it's going to happen because it just has to happen.
And then it does.
And suddenly everything works out exactly the way you want them to. Little surprises you would have never expected.
I go the scholarship! Or at least, a portion of it. A portion meaning 15,000 dollars. Which is a good portion. An incredible portion. I'm so excited. To not be starving...
On top of that: my NYU orientation fee has been lowered. To a lovely $70 instead of $300. And I won't have to get up early. I get to arrive a day early. So many lovely things are possible, now that this scholarship has happened.
I'm optimistic, energetic, cheerful. Lovely, lovely things are happening in the near future. Hurray!
Now I just have to make sure that I'm not dying of some terrible sickness. And all will be well.
