A whole lot of OMGs and freaking out

madrid
A few nights ago, after finishing work for the night and closing up the store I looked at my phone to check the time. Instead, I was met with a message from one of my good friends, Bec, who studies spanish with me at UTS and who also happens to be travelling to Spain next year. It read:
“Leer tu correo electrΓ³nico ahora!”
I realised I stopped breathing. This was it. This is what we’d been waiting for since I can’t even remember when. We were supposed to receive an email during our semester break informing us of where we would be attending university next year but for what I believe to be unsubstantial reasons, this crucial announcement had been pushed back and back.. and back. So clearly, Bec’s message could only imply one thing. I tried getting into my inbox as fast as I could (of course, it being the only time I consecutively mistype my password three times) whilst walking at super-human pace toward my bus stop (I presume out of excitement). I see the email. Β I disregarded everything except for one line.

“I can confirm that students who nominated the following locations as their first preferences will be placed at their preferred locations: Carlos III (Madrid)…”

I freaked. OUT.
I called Bec straight away and the whole conversation pretty much consisted of countless “OMG’s” and “I’M FREAKING OUT’s”. You should have seen me frantically walking across Pyrmont bridge at 9:30pm on a Friday night. There were quite a few on-lookers. Once that conversation was over, I freaked out again and called my best friend, Emilie. And then again when I called Michaela, my now official travel buddy – she’s going to Madrid with me! (AAAHHH!)

So there you have it!
As of January 2015, I will officially be a student of La Universidad Carlos III de Madrid, EspaΓ±a!
