So the saga of my college career continues! To bring you all up to date, I had transferred to the University of Louisville this past semester to be closer to home and to save money, but I really didn't like it. Upon further thought, I decided to go back to my first college, Appalachian State University. I was so excited and had almost everything ready and was about to finalize housing, and I got a very amazing email.
So I have a secret! It's something I've been dying to share with you all since the day I started blogging, and is actually one reason why I started blogging. I wanted this to be an end goal of my blog. Thankfully, I won't be ending my blog, more like ending a chapter of my blog. Don't worry, I will keep writing!
Let's spill the beans: I've been working all of last semester to apply for this amazing opportunity--The Wendell Berry Farming Program through Sterling College in Vermont. I didn't want to mention it because I thought it would be really uneventful if I didn't get in, so I thought I wouldn't get my hopes up. Only 12 people are admitted to the program, and this is the inaugural year. Through all the trials and tribulations, I applied and was put on the wait list. There was still a chance I could get in, but I was kind of devastated. If I didn't get into the program, I wouldn't really be able to afford college without going through a lot of debt--which is ultra-no-bueno as a farmer. I was second on the wait list, and y'all should know now, I sure as heck waited. Well, about a week ago, I received the email that I was accepted! I was overcome with happiness, as this was an absolute dream of mine, in addition to the perk that it is tuition free. I am officially going to this program, The Wendell Berry Farming Program through Sterling College, which is held in Henry County KY! My dream has come true!
