Acceptance.

Well, the last thing I left you with was that I thought I blew my interview...
but it turns out, they still liked me apparently.
I found out the day after my interview that I have been ACCEPTED to Presbyterian College School of Pharmacy! 
Just typing it takes my breath away a little bit.
I got the phone call during my physics class, and I couldn't answer. So I quickly checked my email while the professor was lecturing and saw the acceptance email. I couldn't stop shaking, and I was frantically trying to text everyone to let them know.

I cried the whole way home, and then after I got home.
Happy tears, the happiest tears I've ever cried.

All of the hard work I've put in over the past four years has finally paid off.
The uncertainty of whether or not I'll ever be good enough for a pharmacy school? Gone.
I WILL be in pharmacy school this fall, and it is such an incredible feeling.

I don't even know how to put it all into words, it's just so surreal.
I've waited for this moment for so so long.

and every step of this journey has been 100% worth it.

I'm so grateful for each and every one of you.
For listening to me vent about my struggles, and for giving me the much needed encouragement along the way.

I've still got two other schools I'm waiting to hear from, but regardless of what happens with those.. I've got a seat in a Pharmacy school. And I feel so incredibly blessed. God is so good.
