The last 17 hours of my life have been beyond crazy…
Someone strapped me onto an emotional rollercoaster and would not let me off.
I HATE rollercoasters.
One minute I was typing up an assignment for summer school… the next I am finding out I have to withdraw from the program due to an insufficient score report… I go to bed a hysterical mess. Then I wake up and find out my University misprinted the scores on my transcripts… so I am reinstated into the program… only to discover my other test scores won’t be here in time for school… I’m frantically calling the scoring service… sobbing to the poor girl on the other line….one three way call later and everything is back to normal.
I can’t stop shaking and thinking, “Why me?” Why all of this sudden chaos?? I believe everything happens for a reason and that maybe this was just a little shake-up to remind me to never give up on my dreams?
I refuse to admit I am being dramatic… because I am not… twelve hours ago I thought I had hit rock bottom. I thought that everything I had worked for, dreamed of, prepared for, was gone. All because of a misprint on a transcript. My University knows their mistake and are happy things have been resolved… but that emotional roller coaster I just rode has had a seriously permanent effect on me.
I guess that sometimes life will throw you a curve ball to make sure you are paying attention. I have to say that I am SO LUCKY to have the most supportive and caring family and friends a person could ask for. Mom, Mr. Bear, Dad, J and C, GF, Becky, Miss Kris, Katie F, Susan, Sean, Jessica, Noelle – you are incredible. Your prayers and uplifting words – your encouragement to never give up – your ability to make me smile and laugh when I feel like the biggest failure – I don’t know what I would have done without you.
Thank you for believing in me and thank you for always having faith in me.
