October really has been a strange month in terms of cancelled school days. It’s not even the winter season yet and we’ve already had four “snow days”. Two were due to the unusual snow storm that came Saturday evening, which produced two feet of snow in some places and caused major power outages and widespread damage to trees and power lines. Once the power came back on Tuesday night after the snow storm, I got down to business and worked on my Common Application which I am using to apply to two colleges. I also filled out most of the application for another college not on the Common App. Now all I have to work on is the essays, submit, and I will be done with the application process. It’s a relief to have come this far in the process, but it’s not over yet! In other news, I received my first acceptance letter to a college! It was my first-choice college and I was very happy and excited to see “you have been accepted”. It was an unofficial letter that I received after attending the scholarship decision night, and the official one should be in the mail soon! Now the only thing I have left to do is finish my portfolio, have a review, and hopefully I will be studying there next year.
