Just as I thought the world would be doomed yesterday, I get a surprising news today.
While I was happily eating my lunch with my family, I hear the engine sound coming from a motorcycle. Ding-dong our door bell rang. Dad went outside to check and later got a package from the mailman.
He came inside calling my name. He told me that the package was for me. Nobody really sends me packages that’s why I began to be anxious.
He handed me the package and I quickly opened it–my heart was racing, to tell you honestly.
Inside were two envelopes from the University of Asia & the Pacific, a prestigious school here in the Philippines. Opening the first one, I was scared of what it might say. As I read it, unfortunately, my application for merit scholarship was rejected. I felt down but knowing there was another envelope, I regained my hope.
So, I got the other one and carefully opened it. It read:
We are pleased to inform you that you have been accepted to the UA&P Bachelor of Arts in Media and Entertainment Management as freshman for the first semester, school year 2013-2014…..
…and so on…
At that, I knew that though I passed, I wasn’t gonna be studying here since my parents’ condition was that I had to pass the scholarship in order to for them to send me here.
No worries, I am still waiting for the results from the three other universities I’ve applied in.
All’s well that ends well. That school must’ve been meant for someone else, but not me. Just have too keep praying and wait for God’s plan for me.
I just have to be patient!
