Holy Crap! Or, I Did It, I Did It, I Did It!

Here's something from today's mail (the actual physical, comes-in-an-envelope kind):
Dear M. Nicole Silvester:

I am pleased to inform you of your acceptance to the Foundation Program of NSCAD University for the semester that begins Fall 2005.

There's more, of course, but it's all details about how to accept the offer of admission, and how much of a deposit to pay and all that. But holy crap! I got accepted. Now I need to celebrate. I think I'll go order my Mac. (And then start listing my worldly goods on eBay to pay for it.) Holy crap!

Of course, now I just have to figure how I'm going to get me and my essential effects to Halifax, find a place to live (that allows cats--Darwin can stay with Sue, but Bast doesn't play well with others of her species) (oh, and does anyone want a pet rabbit?), and pay my tuition. I plan to keep my About job as long as I can manage it, so that should take care of most of the day-to-day expenses. I guess it's time for a trip to studentawards.com to see what free money I might qualify for.

Aaah! (Did I say "holy crap!" often enough?)

That's so amazing! I knew you could do it. Of course, the best part is that I can visit you in Halifax.

Niko said...

Yay! Halifax! I'm so looking forward to it. If only I can figure out how to get me, my cat, my drafting table, my books, my computer and my other essential things there.

Sue said...

Yay! Can I say "I told you so" already? Oh wait, I already did. Hee, hee, hee.

Jonathan said...

Nik - Hooray for you! NSCAD looks like a very creative place.

Niko said...

It does. I'm so excited!
