When it came to graduating high school, I had no idea what I wanted to do with my life. I knew college was a must for me; however, when it came to which college or what I wanted to go to school for, I basically had no idea. In the end, I decided that going to a local community college for two years while I got some of the general classes out of the way would be the best choice. During my time in college, I have decided that accounting is what I really want to do. Unfortunately that leaves me with additional problems.
My first choice is, in my opinion, the god of all local business colleges: Mason School of Business of the College of William & Mary. As soon as I began to want to go there, I knew that it was going to be a stretch. My grades are pretty good but not quite W&M good.
Friday was spent driving to Williamsburg, getting lost looking for places to park on campus, going to lunch with a current W&M transfer student and two other prospective transfer students, walking through the grounds on a tour of the campus and listening to an information session, along with a Q&A, specifically for other prospective transfers. I’ve lived in VA all my life; however, I’m not sure if I’ve ever actually seen the campus. It’s amazingly gorgeous. I never thought that I would actually fall for a school like I did when I went there on Friday. During the information session, the head of admissions gave us all the details on what she looks for when she looks through all of the transfer applications. I know it would be hard for me to get in, but listening to her really made me feel like it was possible. Then it came to the problem that I never even thought about. Did you know that it’s even harder to get into the business school at W&M than it is to get into W&M itself? 3.7 GPAs and up? I felt like I was stupid for even thinking I could get in to begin with. What’s the point of even trying to go there if it’s nearly impossible for me to get accepted right now for the program that I want to go there for?
I’m still going to apply to William & Mary and see what happens. I’ve been looking into other schools and I know that the world isn’t going to end or anything if I don’t get to go to my first choice. I wish I had realized that before freaking out on the drive home on Friday. When I left, I was still excited from being on campus; however, it was like as soon as my car left the area, my emotions went crazy. Crying was definitely involved way more than it should have been.
Something I discovered looking up schools:
Christopher Newport University is way better of a school than I was thinking. I was already planning on applying there but now I’m really wanting to look into it further.
Onto a lighter subject… Can you believe that I went to visit the second oldest college in the country and I didn’t even take one picture? Who am I kidding, with my track record, this probably doesn’t surprise any of you! When really special things happen, I tend to forget about photographing it. Example: Did I remember to take any pictures of people I know at the Disney Marathon? Of course not.
Well, I’m sure that won’t be my last time visiting that school so I’ll have to go picture crazy next time!
My town is covered in snow! It’s lovely and heavenly and beautiful and I don’t want it to go away [yet] 🙂
- wandering around the end of the driveway with Lexi looking for the newspaper (it ended up being a few hours late today),
- beautiful scene while hot tubbing,
- an excuse to use the fireplace
- no work yesterday or today
- no school tomorrow
- no running 😦
- sore back and arms from shoveling snow
- being home while desperate housewives is on tv!
Jon Alan got his haircut today. I don’t think I’ve ever seen it this short before (other than in pictures) but I actually really like it! He won’t let me post a picture of it though. It’s a little shorter than he likes.
This was the result of me wandering into the organic section of farm fresh. A wonderful result it was. Those pancakes for some reason reminded me of blueberry waffles. Not really sure why flax = blueberry for my taste buds but I’m not complaining.
The banana babies was just as good as I was expecting. The frozen banana on the inside reminded me of ice cream at first 🙂
VitaTops… Yeah, they’re amazing. I want to try every flavor now! I think I’m still in a bit of denial when it comes to how good they are for you. How can something this delicious be that good for me?
That’s not all of the pictures I have taken since my last post BUT my room is a wreck (in the middle of cleaning it) and I feel like I’ve been working on this post foreverrrrr (I kind of started it Friday night, worked on it last night and again this morning) so I’m going to post this now and I’ll just leave you all with a to be continued…
A little of what will be in the next post:
Snow pictures & quite a bit more food pictures
