Deep Breaths


In an effort to "keep it real" on le blog of mine, I'm going to fill you in on something I'm pretty excited about.

Last week I applied to a program called Teach for America.  Some of you may have heard of it, but if not, google it;)
I was debating back & forth about actually applying because I've heard that acceptance is a total crap shoot. They tell me that it's amazing the different caliber of people who get in over others.  I'm used to a level playing field and I'm usually one of the ones towards the top. SCARY.

I'm pretty used to getting/ achieving the things that I go after.  I've definitely been blessed in that aspect. 
  • High School Cheerleading
  • Varsity Captain
  • Honors and Advanced Placement credits/classes
  • Acceptance to Purdue & U of I
You get the picture. 

Now before you go thinking I'm just using this opportunity to brag, let me tell you about the time when it didn't all work out for me. Freshman year at Purdue, I went through rush and didn't end up with a bid at the end of the last weekend. All that work for nothing.  I was sad, but more in shock that something I wanted hadn't come easily to me. Shocker. But really, it was actually a good experience that impacted my life. 

Whew, this post is getting long but I think that my point after all of this, was that I had to do a little soul searching and see if I was willing to be disappointed as an expense for possibly getting something I reallyyyyy want. I decided to man up and submit my application.

I should hear next Thursday if I made it to the next round of interviews.  Wish me luck! ::Pretty please with a cherry on top!::


Until then, I'll be trying to keep myself busy so I don't get too nervous! :)


Pink Kisses & Wishes,
