Gilman emailed me! The impromptu trips to the Writing Center, the stressing over personal statements and proposals, it paid off! I’m so excited! I’m going to Germany in the summer! I just want to celebrate! However, now is not the time. I must work hard to finish the semester, especially with my engineering classes. These last few weeks will be challenging, as I must tell myself not to daydream of study abroad but rather focus on the task at hand: tackling engineering school.
