Lots of Good News

So one of the major stresses of senior year is that you have to apply to colleges. I looked at several colleges, but when it came down to it there was only one that I REALLY wanted to go to. So that was the only place that I applied (some say that was a stupid move, but I wasn't going to waste money on the application fee on somewhere I didn't want to go). It wasn't really hard to apply to this school because I had a fee waiver and one of the topics for the essay portion I had already written as a class assignment.
A few days ago I got a phone call from the representative from the college that works with my region (Apparently she calls ahead of time because she gets really excited when someone is accepted and wants to give the good news before the letter arrives). I had been accepted, with money from merit scholarships. I'm really happy that I don't have to worry about this anymore because my only other option if I didn't get in was to go to the community college in my town, and I really don't like the idea of sticking around here for much longer. 

Another good thing I found out was that someone from the Huffington Post wanted to write a story about the film club at our school. This is really good news because it gets the word out about what we are doing. I went to one of the script readings yesterday and I realized how much fun this movie is going to be. It's fun and quirky and the people in it are really funny. 
I'll post a link to the story when it is released in a few days.
