Hither here friends….I only want to say this ONCE and never again! Who am I kidding it won’t be the last time, but I gotta admit I’m tired of sharing the same story over and over! So here I go (again)…
I have spent the last two years at a very expensive private school, Seattle Pacific University. I love, love, loved it there! I chose to go to SPU for hopes of entering their nursing program. I had the best chance of getting into their nursing school. I applied twice to their nursing program and couldn’t get in. Dissappointed? Yes. Angry? Oh Yeah. Frustrated? You have no idea! But, I’m a true believe that things happen for a reason, and there’s some reason why I cannot (at this time) get into nursing school.
After get rejected again, I had to do some serious thinking about what now?! Was it worth continueing at SPU and be paying nearly $10k a quarter? As much as I love the school, I really couldn’t justify the cost. However, I was in a bit of a bind. I didn’t take a foreign language in high school, and thus couldn’t apply/be accepted into any public university.
My dream has always been to attend the University of Washington, ever since the 3rd grade. I finally decided to go after my dream. I’m now taking American Sign Language at a local community college, and will take the second year next quarter. I talked to the admission counselor at UW and they said I could go ahead and apply, with the assumption of passing both language clases…and guess what??? I was accepted to the University of Washington Bothell! I will start there in January! I’m so excited!
You may be wondering, what will I be getting a degree in….communications & media…I’m going to be able to blog for a living! Who knew that was even an option!! I also will be able to do PR work, and other work in that field. This field has endless oppurtunities and options! I’m psyched!
I’m not ready to close the chapter of my life on nursing, I’ll continue to apply and try to get in, but at this time I’m moving on….going to work towards something! I’m tired of just being in limbo land waiting! So bring it University of Washington! I’m so excited!!
With all that being said, I’ll return you to your regularly scheduled blog post and wait to see how many people still ask when I’m starting nursing school!
Happy Friday Everybody!
