So, I was applying for another school. For an university.
I was so hesistant on attempting to apply.
- My grades aren’t the best
- I’ve never transferred and now I am letting myself in a university 😱
I took the entrance exam. It was an IQ test. I thought I did okay. My results were not the best. I guess it was because I didn’t finish. I know that I don’t have a stupid brain. Anyway, I ended up in the waiting list. Guess what, I cried because..
- I was desperate to get in
- My schoolmates got in
- My family were expecting me to get in
It was really discouraging. But it was my parents who told me, “Don’t lose hope! Think positive!” Also, other people were telling me that they are sure that I’ll get in. I realized that these people have faith and hope in me and I should for myself.
I kept on crying within the 2 weeks. I keep on praying that I’ll get in. I said in my prayer, “Lord, I may have been rejected in the past but please not this one.”
“Please, let me in. If they don’t let me in, they are missing out on someone who has so much potential.”
Now, I’m officially in! The feeling is so surreal. After all the negative things that happen, I’ve been saved by God. He is letting me start again in another school.
Everything now makes so much sense.
I’ll leave this note.
“In life you will be discouraged. It is up to you on how you will face it. It is okay to cry and vent out your frustrations. But no matter what, continue to move forward. It is not the end. Bad things may happen but there will always be a redemption to it. As they say, after a storm comes a rainbow. Don’t ever give up because who knows you’ll eventually make it and pull it through!”
To those who are like me who is transitioning to the adult world, I am with you.
Transferring is the hardest decision I have ever made.
But my alma matter, where I grew up for more than a decade will always be a place I call home.
I will miss my friends but it is about time to make new ones.
