I'm Going to GERMANY!

Dear Ernest,

The admission committee of the International Inter-University Program in
Digital Media would like to inform you about the results of the evaluation
process.We had a large number of applications with a lot of excellent
candidates. The admission committee reviewed and discussed all applications.

I am happy to inform you that your application was successful ... and
that the committee recommends you to the University of the Arts Bremen for
admission ...

Prof. Dr. Ulrike Lechner (Member of the admission committee M.Sc./M.A.
Digital Media)

I got this email Thursday, August 5, 2004. I have been waiting for it for around two months. I was beginning to feel that I wasn't accepted or that they didn't get my application in the first place.

A lot of people knew that I sent my application and a lot have been asking when I was leaving. I had to tell them I don't know...

I was estatic when I finally received that e-mail. I couldn't think of anything else. I told everyone I ran into. There was a lot fo mixed feelings upon receiving this.

My bebe was obviously very very sad, but at the same time was very happy for me. My good friend Karl was worried that "Life as we know it will never be the same". My father was estatic and started telling everyone.

My mother would have been so proud...

Up to yesterday, I always believed that I will make my desicion upon receiving the notice. There are still a lot of good reasons for me to stay, but after waiting for so long I realized that this kind of opportunity may never come again.

I will go to Germany. I will study there for 2 years. And I will do really well. I pray that I remain strong and focused during these next two years.

I offer this new stage in my life to the people I love, especially my mother, who sacrificed so much for me to fulfill my dreams.

Hi Laila. Thanks for leaving a note. I'm flattered by your visit.

I have 2 realizations today.

1) There is at least one other person reading this blog hehehe.

2) I just displayed my full name in this post (I'd have deleted it by now, you know security reasons)
