Success!

Yesterday I got a phone call from my adviser at Laguna College of Art and Design saying I had been admitted and to expect an acceptance package in the mail. Along with a pretty decent Merit Award. Woohoo!

So now, the praying begins. I mean, I've been praying all along, but the intensity has been ramped up. I allowed myself a few days of just basking in the thought that all my day dreams might actually happen one day but the time has come for thoughts of other things. Like shoes and ships and sealing wax. Wait. No.

Financial Aid.

P.S. When my adviser called she asked for Ashely and I said, "This is she."

This phrase has always baffled me and have never actually used it in real life. I felt like an actress from the 40s with the rolling of the "r"s and the fluttering of the eyelashes and the big long cigarettes.

...of cabbages, and kings. And why the sea is boiling hot and whether pigs have wings.

you are on a roll with the honor roll. congratulations!

about "this is she": it is a really weird leftover from days gone by, when grammarians scared everybody into thinking that they had to say that. i try to say "this is carissa" and avoid the pronoun altogether.
