Hiking is a regular thing for me. I love it. I live in such a beautiful place! Today I went with my pal McCall to get my mind off things. You see, the initial plan for my life was to go to USU but I was only 95% sure. 5% of me was leaning towards BYU. Last night I got an email saying that I didn't get accepted to BYU. It was really hard for me, considering I had almost expected to get in (which I should not have done in the first place). I felt like I had a solid application: Good academically, good involvement, and good with church stuff.
When I found out, I was at work. 3 of my coworkers were around me when I got the news. Their first response was, "all I have to say is that everything happens for a reason." And I can testify that is 100% true. It was pretty relieving knowing that I'm all the way, positively going to Utah State. And I would've gone there anyway if I got accepted to BYU, but the hard thing about it was thinking I wasn't good enough. All is well though, I will show them who's boss and make sure to do outstanding academic achievements! Motivation is key.
Anyways, sorry for the ranting. I just thought I would spare some of you from asking me personally. Let's be honest though, Aggies are a million times better than Cougars. I will have the time of my life up in Logan!
