Going Places

Yesterday I was supposed to shadow for my possible new job again, but Sam was sick. This meant going in early and working the job I had only shadowed for once! It was tiring, but I had fun, and afterwards went to work at the comic shop.

When I got home, sleepy and exhausted, I opened up some mail from the Maine College of Art to find out I was accepted into their New Media program! The real shocker was reading the second letter...

Dear Melanie,

Congratulations! It is my pleasure to inform you that you have been selected to receive a Maine College of Art Merit Scholarship in the amount of $8,000.

You were slected for this award based on your current accomplishments and the high level of promise and potential you have demonstrated throughout your academic career. We believe Maine College of Art is a place where you will thrive as a student and artist, and we are excited to imagine the impact you will have on the MECA community.

Your annual Merit Scholarship begins with your enrollment in the fall 2010 semester and is renewable each of the following three years, contingent upon you maintaining satisfactory academic progress and full-time enrollment.

You had me at Scholarship, MECA.

As sleepy as I was when I got home, I couldn't sleep until 2am.
