Everything's coming up Mir!

This morning I responded to Goldsmith’s and officially accepted their offer. I was holding off a little bit only because to accept would be officially closing the door on Aberdeen. I haven’t heard anything back from Aberdeen and that application got out very late anyway so I very well may not. I just had to mentally come to an acceptance of that. Now it is official, I have a spot I have accepted and I’m going to school at Goldsmith’s in London in September.


I posted my initial reaction (and an abridged version of my acceptance letter.) Now I’ve had a few days for it to really sink in. Yesterday I was thinking about it, I looked back and found the old blog when I officially announced that I wanted to go back to school and study in London.  I looked back some of the blogs when I got really down on myself and thought for sure it was all just a pipe dream. The initial reaction to getting accepted was a kind of F-You to that self-deprecating Mir mixed with the calming feeling of affirmation that I am good or at least show potential.  I think that’s the best part. That’s what made me most excited from the second I read the word “delighted” in my letter. I thought of that before I thought about how exciting it is be able to live out the dream of living in London or even achieve a goal I've busted ass on for a while.


That day I took a walk after work enjoying my beautiful city and thinking about the path ahead of me. When I came home Raye bought me a little bottle of patron (nice!) and some whiskey and we ended up celebrating with the neighbors. Wednesday I was exhausted for some reason, I’m certain it might have had a little to do with the fact that the term “celebrating with the neighbors” is synonymous with drinking many shots of Old Crow whiskey. I tried to write my personal statement for the scholarship application but I started nodding off I tried so I ended up joining Raye, Dorothy and Cathy and watched the season premiere of ANTM. I’ll get that statement done next week I suppose. I just got accepted and I’m already procrastinating.


Last night we had a little dinner party. I ran into Derek on the street last week and I invited him over to hang out with me and Raye. Then when Andy found out, he got excited at the prospect of seeing Derek again so I invited him as well. Then Dorothy had the same reaction, and she invited Astro so our little hang out turned into a proper dinner party for which Raye made really yummy spaghetti. Andy bought Raye that Partini game so it turned into an impromptu mini game night. Good times.I love my friends. 

Speaking of friends, thanks to all who sent me congrats and well wishes on my big news be it on here or Facebook or in person. :D

On the whole I think that right now I’m the happiest I’ve ever been (outside of any time traveling). I feel proud of myself for accomplishing a goal I’ve been working on for two years. I feel validated in my ability and potential in that which is my passion. At the same time I’m so totally in love with someone who’s incredibly wonderful and supportive. It’s like everything’s coming up Mir! Life is good!
