It was a bittersweet day for me.
There were lots of endings and a few clear resolutions for who I am going to be and where I am going to go in the upcoming years. Today was Ivy Day. This means that every single Ivy League college/university released their decisions at 5 pm today. I had applied to Brown and, at this point, Brown would have been the only thing to stop me from going to Michigan. Unfortunately, (but maybe fortunately, I’m not sure…) I got the big ole rejection from Brown University. I wasn’t even that upset when I saw it. Honestly, I had been expecting a rejection all along and had spent the day convincing myself that Brown was the wrong choice and Michigan was it. Now that I didn’t get in, I am convinced that Michigan is where I am “destined” to go and where I will be the most happy. And I could not be more excited. Finally some resolution. I am going to the University of Michigan this upcoming fall and I will be a part of their class of 2018.
Tonight was also my last first high school golf practice and my very last chorus concert (which is why I am just writing this blog post now). My golf team has been an important part of my high school career and I can’t wait to end this season with a bang (winning conferences, I hope). The chorus concert was fun and all of the seniors were recognized at the end (another blog post in itself as I was kind of forgotten…maybe tomorrow’s) which is always fun because who doesn’t love to be recognized.
So, here’s to knowing. Knowing where you’re going, knowing what you’ve come from and knowing who you want to be.
Until tomorrow, everyone!
