Going To Norway
Since I was a little girl I wanted to live in a foreign country, so I decided the way to make it come true was to study in one. A couple of years ago I found out about some scholarships, and I started to prepare to apply for one.
Almost since I started investigating them, I fell in love with the school in Norway, it is just so wonderful. This year I had the degree to be able to apply, so I did.
First, all I had to do was a test. They said they would have the results in two weeks, and as I hadn’t gotten any notifications about the next round, I thought that I hadn’t qualified. But the next week I received an e-mail inviting me to continue in the process. Obviously I went, I was so happy. There we started planning a camping trip, to which we went two weeks later. That was the first camping trip I’ve gone on, and it was one of the greatest experiences ever.
The committee told us that they would be calling within the next two weeks the ones that had qualified, but I didn’t get a call, or an e-mail.
About a month later my cousin told me that her schoolmate, someone that had gone to the camp with me, had gotten an e-mail the month we went to camp saying that he hadn’t qualified, but I never got an e-mail saying that I had/hadn’t qualified. I e-mailed him asking if he knew anything about the ones who had gotten the scholarships or anything. It was Holy Week so we were on vacation. The next day I got an answer forwarding his e-mail and telling me that he didn’t know anything about it.
The next week I was back in school and I was surprised when the principle called me. She actually told me that the committee had been wanting to contact me because they couldn’t at my house’s number, nor to any cell phone (it had to be changed for security reasons), so they were asking if I was still interested. Of course I was, so I answered back and gave them the new numbers. We had an appointment in which we finished settling everything. And all that’s left to be said is that in September, I’m going to Norway.
