I got in school!
I've been admitted at the Academy of Art University of San Francisco!
I've been waiting for this for years! Finally I'm going to school! Wow, such a happy time in my life, it's like my posts are loaded with exclamation marks today, but I just can't believe it, I actually cried when I read the news.
It's a loooong story, but after waiting years for legal things to come through so I could go to school in Europe (because going to America was too drastic of a change, too overwhelming for the cooked me that was depressed, dealing with anxiety and physical exhaustion), in the end they wouldn't grant the funds. Not too long ago I was crying in that immigration office when they told me, seeing my life shrink and my dreams fade in obscurity.
Our last resort was waiting even longer, 3 years to be exact. I said NO. The universe was giving me a BIG wake up call. Then I just decided to go ahead and do whatever I could to improve my life here and now. I started eating raw, I started to regain my health, my strength. My anxiety began to fade, my depression began to fade. I realized that I was better off in America, that my new life would be best supported there, and however big and overwhelming moving there seemed at first, was nothing I didn't feel strong enough to do. And now? I've been admitted to art school in San Francisco, I'm getting funds, and I'm feeling better than I have in many years!
Even better when those who didn't believe in me find out. Because they don't see all that's happening on the inside, and don't care to find out either, they think nothing is happening at all, or that what you are doing isn't good enough for them. These are the people I'm also glad to do away with. A wonderful side effect of my inner detox: outer detox!
I don't drink, but I think I'm going to drink some wine to this!
