Today is a good day

Last night I prepared a lengthy blog entry about the day’s classes. I wrote about my grades on the most recent assignments, using an overlock machine for the first time, my struggles in sketching class, and my changing mood throughout the day in response to events at school. There were also sections about the weather and my commute to school. I even mentioned the Twins’ victory over the Tigers. But all that stuff has been preempted for something far more important.


I have been checking my Stout account almost daily for the past few months, and today I finally got the good news. I promptly accepted their offer of admission. In late August I received a verbal confirmation that I would be accepted, but I needed to see it in writing to allay my fears. Now I cannot stop smiling.

For the next few months I will be quite busy as I prepare to move to Wisconsin and get ready for school. This morning I made an appointment for a dental cleaning in April; now I have to cancel it. I have a lot of work ahead of me, but it will all be worth it. The nervousness should kick in soon, but for now I am just too happy and excited to worry.

Next week I will get back to my regular musings about classes and sewing, but I do have one quick statement about overlock machines now: I love them. If anyone is thinking about buying me a gift to celebrate my acceptance to Stout, a Juki industrial serger would be very nice.
