I am giddy with excitement. I don't know how my family is going to put up with me for the next NINE days! I will be arriving in New Jersey NINE days from now and spending the next THREE days at Ranger U! I have wanted to do this since they started the combined class in 2008, but I could never get myself together, get the application in and so on. This year I decided I was going to try. I sent the application off and waited. It seemed like forever, but finally the deadline date rolled around. I anxiously checked my email that first week, but no email ! So I figured I wasn't accepted...I would try again for the fall Ranger U. But....that next Monday I opened up my email and there it was. An email from TIM HOLTZ!!! I opened the email to find a "Congratulations" You have been accepted to Ranger U!!!! Screams were screamed and happy dances were danced(I am so glad noone was around)!!! It has been the longest three weeks, making plans, and waiting! Now the time is almost here...well NINE days away and I feel like a kid at Christmas! I have been chatting with some of the other girls who are attending and I have to say I can't wait to meet them...FUN girls...I can tell!!! I have a feeling that I will make some good friends!
