Time for a change... I think this sums me up pretty well:
Things tend to turn out well when you worry, so that's probably good. - EmP
I still <333 wolves, though.
Title: Well, I've had a run of fantastic luck lately Posted: March 18, 2009 (06:58 PM)
Or at least a lot of really good things have been happening lately.
After that passport fiasco, I decided to apply anyway upon learning that they'd accept a passport application receipt late. I just appled for my passport today after class, since my birth certificate and stuff finally came in yesterday. They predicted I should have it within two weeks (I expedited) if nothing goes wrong.
My judicial review still needs to be turned in for the summer abroad application yet, but that's alright because they know there's a huge backup on those since everyone under the sun turned there's in...
It's still highly possible that I'll get into the program despite being late because they were looking for 10 people to enter before processing applications (probably part of the reason for the "extensions"), and they might have just reached that number. A total of 30 can be accepted.
In academic news, I aced my theology midterm (53/55), and passed my stats test with an 84 (out of like 88, I guess he took the points out of... so that includes the bonus). I have a B+ in that class which is great. If I can keep that I'll be happy. But a lot of this seems to rely on bonuses on tests, so... hopefully I can either get better or hope the teacher gives extra points for missing class again or something like he's been doing. I also got a 23/25 on my philosophy paper... and a 92% on the midterm. And *phew* My Spanish grade is still an A despite worrying about this composition I had to write but didn't have time to run by him for proofing... Did well enough on that anyway.
Hm... What else...
Me and a bunch of friends won tickets to Watchmen next Tuesday after winning this trivia contest last night. That was fun.
And in the "good news but still sort of depressing" department, it turns out that my dog is not dead.... yet.... But my parents really thought she'd be because apparently she seemed to have had a seizure one night or something (she was throwing up everywhere and completely unable to control her legs... and she might not be able to walk at all anymore now, but I'm not sure about that since I'm not actually there...), but she's still alive! I guess. I'm really not expecting her to last much longer, though. She's like a 14-year-old beagle, after all.
But oh, well... Whatever happens happens, I suppose.
Anyway, I think I'll stop talking about myself now (I really hate bragging, anyway, which some of this undoubtedly is; I just wanted to express the many good things that've happened recently, particularly with the study abroad stuff) before everything starts crashing down again, lol. I'm just glad for everything going well so far... despite the earlier hiccups and seeming hopelesness of it. I'd like this goodness to continue. So.... *knock on wood*, count my blessings and all that. =D

Good for you, WQ! People should share good news more often!
