photojournalism, here I come || my life

I know I just posted about life being boring, but it seems that God thinks otherwise. Saturday evening I was reading the intro of a book called "25 Days to Better Thinking and Better Living" that was free on amazon when my ADD kicked in. I decided to check the Ontario college's website to see if I got an offer of admission to a photojournalism program that I applied to a few weeks ago. I thought to myself, "Naw, they would have e-mailed me about it!" But because I have major ADD I decided to check anyway. 

I scrolled down and saw a notification beside the word "offers" and saw that I was accepted into the program for photojournalism. It's actually happening. I feel like I'm dreaming right now. I wrote about overcoming my fear of applying and now I've been accepted! 

I tried so hard to come up with reasons to be afraid but I couldn't. This is SO good and I'm so excited. Thank you to all those who believed in me even when I didn't. Thank you to those who gave me opportunities to exercise my gift and allow my dreams to be a reality. Thank you for all those who pushed me to do this even when I didn't want to. Thank you to everyone for celebrating with me and being excited for what is to come in my life. Thank you Lord, parents, siblings, six pack, friends, mentors, pastors and NPC for praying and supporting me! It means a lot. I'm sure the next 2 years will be incredible in so many different ways. I'm going to be have to face my fears and learn to take criticism. It's going to be 2 challenging yet glorious years of learning and discovering so many aspects of photojournalism and even more. 

Here we go! I've got to start practicing and studying this summer so that I'm ready for the fall. 
For those reading this, I give you all the rights to hold me accountable any time I want to give up. I have a terrible tendency to do this but in faith I envision myself graduating and being a world renown photographer ^_____^
