“when somebody cares for you, it is so apparent. in their words, in their gestures, in their actions - it is obvious. don’t settle for anyone who leaves you wondering.” 👫 #777luckyfish

Sometimes it’s worth to wait. When I was in high school, my senior year my counselor was advising me to stay an extra year saying my English wasn’t good enough and that college will be too hard for me yet, and my transfer counselor said that I should only apply to States and that there is very slight chance of getting into UC. I definitely didn’t want to stay another year, so I apply to every single state university in California, and I got in in every one of them, and I realized that maybe I still can go to UC, so I decided to go to community college, save money and try get in into UC. I was told by many people and my college counselor that only very small percentage of people make it to places like Berkley, and made it seem like it’s unrealistic to get in. After two years of college, I applied to schools that I wanted to transfer to, and it the spring I received reply that I don’t have enough units, and that’s I need 5 more units to transfer. UC Santa Cruz accepted me under condition that I take summer school to make up for those 5 units. At first, I was considering to just go to Santa Cruz, but I chose to stay another year make up those five units and try for better schools. I applied to universities last fall. I thought I’ll be moving to SoCal for school. On the last day, when the decisions were supposed to be posted, I got email from two of my top choices UC San Diego and Berkeley. I couldnt believe I got it, I already lost hope cuz it was the very last day. I just couldn’t believe I made it. No one thought I would make it this far, I didn’t think I would make it this far. Sometimes I had thought that I should’ve just wine to one of the states, and not waste my time cuz I could’ve been graduating next year. I’m glad I listed to my heart, I went through all of this, cuz next fall I’ll be in my dream school studying what I’m passionate about!
