College Spirit

I feel like a small kid who's just been granted a lifetime supply of candies. Only I am delirious with joy for a different reason, as insinuated by the title of this post.

I enrolled for college this afternoon and have gotten my student ID, college T-shirt and college bag. I am now a semi-college student. Sweet joy. Besides that, I have also gotten my letter of deferment from the college and can't wait to lay this to rest. Also, I will be studying at the new lakeside college building for my second year of college and said building is looking mighty fine in the digital image released.

I had no idea that I had to select a course upon enrollment. I only daftly assumed I had to choose the programme, not the course. So I made the decision to pursue Engineering on a whim. The very helpful lady I spoke to informed me that a lot of math is involved; another reason why I am very much looking forward to college.

The college spirit, as opposed to high school spirit (which I lack completely), was bubbling inside of me all day that I even watched a two-minute video of the construction progression of the new lakeside campus set to be completed in late 2009 when I got home.

I thank God everyday for the scholarship because boy is American Degree Transfer Program exorbitant! I ask of God everyday to grant me the wisdom I need to decide wisely. And I pray everyday for God to give me the strength I need to acclimate to college life.

I gotta say, you only experience this kind of excitement once (or maybe never) in your adolescence. So I am not ashamed to admit -for now, at least- that indeed, I am keening with excitement.
