Good Fortune.

It has been quite a while since I last posted on here. It's been crazy busy trying to get everything done. After I got all of my papers done to get accepted to the University. The day I leave for New Orleans to help rebuild the houses, I get an email asking me to apply for a scholarship. Boy, that was fun trying to get everything I needed while down there with practically nothing. I had awesome people to help me out though. A girl I was able to make friends with let me use her laptop to fill out the paper, the staff in the church we stayed was so nice to me by letting me use their scanner for my passport, and the business office was able to let me get my transcript. I just had to write a note with all my info with my signature and send it in an email to them. Shew, was so crazy!!!
It paid off though! I just got confirmation earlier today after waiting for almost a month that I received the scholarship! I was so pumped about it I screamed out, 'Yes!'. Also, yes, yes I did do a fist pump. haha...couldn't resist I was so excited. I've had so much help and encouragement since I decided to go on this journey. They have just been amazing. Just deciding to do this and going through the process has already made me look at things differently.
I am going to miss so much while I am gone. I'm going to miss my family, my friends, my dog (Zoey), my fish (Fishy Cat), and the little things about my life. First package I'm going to ask for will be filled with fruit baby food, nutella, and slim jims! Yes, yum!  I've been dreading things changing. I value my friendships with people, especially those who are close to me. That's what I fear the most is losing friends because I don't know how to communicate well. Some have already pulled away this school year, and it sucks! So, in a way, this journey is a fresh start to experience a new culture with new people. One of my Korean friends is going to pick me up at the airport, and I just can't wait because I haven't seen her in almost 2 and a half years. She introduced me to the music of 2NE1, and after that, I was hooked. haha I plan on trying to go to a 2NE1 or F(x) concert. F(x) would be awesome cause they have more English in their songs. :P Speaking of which, some of their music just got shiffled to play on my ipod. Anyways, I'm off now. Looks like I wrote enough for a bit. I will try to update soon!

O yeah! I also bought a new laptop!
