I know I said just a few posts ago that I was going to change my degree to Humanities and finish ASAP at the school I'm currently enrolled in.
Well, things change quickly around here I guess.
My little sister has chosen to go to a school about 2.5 hours from where I am now, and it just so happens that there is an awesome school very close to her, University of South Florida, St. Petersburg. When I met my parents there last week, I felt more at home in the area than I have in a while. The people were all so nice and friendly, and let me say I have never seen so many dogs in strollers.
People pampering their pooches, and being nice? I'm there!
And of course, there are the academic reasons: I can finish with a degree that I am actually interested in and want (Marketing) within the same amount of time.
After a little more research, I applied to the school.
If any of you have ever transferred, you know what comes next.
The dreaded application process which entails countless transcript requests, random fees and so much back and forth it's ridiculous.
What's sad for me at this point though, is that this is really all just going through the motions. I transferred to Valencia, then to UCF and now here, and it really gets easier every time. Not to mention I went through the whole process before Valencia attempting to apply to UCF only to be rejected. My experience with them only gets better.
So here I am, once again playing the waiting game. Apparently I should have a decision by Thanksgiving, and that would mean I would have a little over a month to pack up everything and move me, Scout and Sadie across the state so I could start classes at USF-SP in the spring.
It sounds daunting, but honestly, I'm so up for it.
I have to admit, I haven't been this excited for something in a long time. I can usually gauge my excitement based upon how quickly I complete the different pieces to the puzzle, and I will say I am on top of my game with this one. I finished all of the transcript and application nonsense today, and am officially just waiting on a decision.
It's probably a good sign that they called me less than 24 hours after I submitted my application to remind me that they needed my transcripts, right?
I almost typed, wish me luck, and realized that I have been asking for a lot of that lately, and so this time I will ask for your prayers. I love you all and cannot wait to share this journey with you!
