Um, a little bit of just my college story, okay? I'm not even ecology. Applying for college, picking a college, all that kind of stuff. And if you if you guys didn't know I did wind up deciding to a college I believe in Mary. For many people who know me, that was actually really, really surprising. You know, everyone's like I took these the s a t once already. I was not thinking about about college, like I waas in the sense that I knew that I was going to college. Like, I wasn't thinking about it in terms of, like, what? College? What I like to go to, um what I wanna major in. I don't know why I just I didn't think about going to college like I knew I was going, but I just didn't think about how it was going to get there, what I was gonna do, which went out to go toe stuff. Like I had visited college campuses before, like just for different types of programs like I say T programs and all that kind of stuff, but I never looked at it as, Oh, I like this in a college. This has an aspect of a college that I would like to go to that kind of thing. I just never thought about a college in that way until I had the chance to stay at VCU for three days. Like as when I started thinking about schools, you know, so fast. Whatever I was, I saw that I was going to be see you? What year was it? Am I being like I'm going to be C? I was I applied to other schools because I didn't know if I was gonna get in, if you see you because I doubted myself a lot in that time um, yeah, so I applied, like, early this early action or something like that to VCU. And I wanted video, But I lied all these different schools and, um, I got into about I read into Muslims like I can't remember exactly how many but I applied to. Like from October all the way through, like March 30th I was finding out that I got into schools and all that kind of stuff. Um, but back up to November, I had and there's gonna be completely other college name. I had an on site at Mission with Sweet Briar College, and we have a really close family friend who's the Night missions counselor at Sweet Briar. So I did Night, obviously that accepted, um and so see that school is really, really affordable and also I got accepted into, like, a lot of their scholar programs. To be honest, I didn't know where I was going to school because like I was just so conflicted because at a certain point I think I had a visit. So I didn't know where I was going to college. I thought maybe I was gonna take me a gonna be a I don't really know. So anytime someone would ask me out, just pick picker college and tell them that's what I was going. For whatever reason, and I see it, I see, um, an email from William and Mary and it's like good news is on the horizon or something like that. It's like two weeks later, I got I wouldn't very acceptance thing, and, um, in it there was an invitation to the admitted Students Day, which is like, I think, like, two weeks from then, um, and it was like if you can't go to that made of students, there was, like, this huge event for the school like it was. MIT students day, and basically, my mom was like, Why don't you? Why don't you go to one? And I was like, She's a young You don't know where you're going to school. Why don't you just go to one like you never know? And so I want to go into that made it Students Day, which waas on Saturday. Um, yeah, I like, and I love this school like I loved everything about the school, um, and the one thing that are the two things that were wrong with Sweet Briar, which I know. At the same time, I got the same feel from what would marry that I got from sleep, right? And so I just kind of knew, like, you know, it's time my parents like, Oh, yeah, that's nice. I don't know, I just really, really fell in love with it. Um, fast forward to about April 27 which is, like, three or four days before a national decision day. When you have to have your positive and I stood in Nora's going to school, it was between, um bcu, William Mary Hampton. I want to get away married, but I had my parents still wanted me to let consider all my options, and so I actually in my bullet, you know, I made a pro and con like list, and I'll inside a picture right here. Tech didn't offer me any colleges that always just superduper surprising. They were like, if you if you want to work hard for this because I still had to pay, I saw the paint a good amount of money more than I really have, But it's not as much of that would have been, um, and that was actually my grandma just texted me about my tuition paper that's due today um, yeah, I I know that I'm gonna have to work my butt off. So I my thing is, why not? Why not choose to work your butt off for something you're gonna actually want Towe work for? You know, like, if I decided to go to him, didn't just because my parents wanted me to go there and I had to work hard in order to pay for my schooling. Just because I feel like I don't know, I was scared Still a little bit, so I waited so literally May 1st I made my deposit. Um yeah, I chose Will you marry? I've been back twice since I made my decision, and I haven't started school yet, but I can very firmly say right now I do not regret it at all. So if you guys have any questions about, like, my college application process getting prepared for college, um, academically.
