Part 1, Part 2, Part 3, Part 4, Part 5, Part 6
Since someone in admissions sent me an acceptance letter and I was there, the School of Architecture would let me stay and I would pretty much just be starting in with the freshmen. I got signed up for the appropriate classes and began.
- The incentive of acceptance to RPI to get me to follow through on homework and extracurriculars.
- Having the need to break up with the high school boyfriend for no reason other than God telling me it wasn’t right anymore.
- That thought bring put into my head by God, telling me to leave RPI and transfer. My mom was laid off from RPI within months of this push by God that told me to apply elsewhere. If God hadn’t told me this, or I hadn’t listened, there is no way that I could have afforded to stay at RPI without that tuition that was a benefit from my mom’s job. I would have been transferring anyway, but to community college since application deadlines were past by that point.
- The connection and urge for Virginia Tech that I felt without having ever been there and only lightly browsing their website.
- No one had authorized my acceptance to the school, yet I still got an acceptance letter and got to stay. (I proved them wrong and graduated with honors. I got my honors sash from the same professor that told me I shouldn’t have gotten accepted.)
- I met that boy down the hall who filled every single qualification on my list. (Really.. I had a list. It was written down with a friend and a church mentor and then I modified it after leaving RPI.)
- I got a degree from one of the top 5 design schools in the country- a higher ranked school than RPI.
- I get to work in a field where I truly care about the work.. the RIGHT job for me.
For I know the plans I have for you, declares the LORD, plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
