College

Last Friday Cheerleader Girl and I headed up to Longwood University. It is the first college of several in which she has/will apply. It is also the only one that has an “immediate decision” which essentially says, if you meet certain requirements, you apply, bring your transcripts, tour the school, and while touring, the admissions office reviews your application and by the time you get back they have their decision, but you don't have to commit until May. (Pretty sure that was a run on sentence, glad I didn’t have to write her essays). We knew going into this tour that CG far exceeded the requirements, and according to her college comp teacher her essays were “phenomenal,” but there is still a level of anxiety that is comparable to bungee jumping in Thailand. For me, not for her. Fortunately, all of my concerns were put to rest shortly after we returned to the admissions office……. Yep that’s right my friends that live in my computer

SHE WAS ACCEPTED!!!
Congrats Cheerleader Girl!!!

Still don’t know if she will go, but it is one down……

I think I’ll go find that bungee cord now.
Let the wine gulping sipping begin.
Ugh.
