Long story short.
I'm transferring to Willamette University for fall semester 2009. Because:
1. More challenging coursework, so
a. I will learn, and
b. I will actually want to go to class sometimes. (WHAT?)
2. The theatre community there is very small (about 30-40 students total), so
a. They will actually want me to be there,
b. I will actually be able to make legitimate friends,
c. They have more time to help me figure out my voice acting stuffs,
d. THEY ARE SO NICE and
e. They are constructing a huge epic black box theatre where they will be able to do THEATRE IN THE ROUND which is like mi favorito if you know what I mean.
3. The campus is goooorgeeeous. In that...
a. They have a little river running through shaped like a W. You know I love my water features.
b. Apparently there is a duck the size of a goose called "The Lord of the Ducks" who likes to waddle around and look handsome.
c. There are lawn chairs set out everywhere for your relaxational pleasure
d. They have 5-star cuisine. No joke. What is that about? Deliciousness. That's what it's about.
e. Kaneko commons, the place in which I'm hoping to have my dorm, has a swimming pool. Yeah boy. ALSO
f. Apparently some single rooms in Kaneko have their own private bathroom. This is college blasphemy but what do I care? I could shower in peace again!
g. Many more examples of beauty.
4. They are giving me a $13,000 merit scholarship because I am the smarts. So
a. I will feel cool about myself and
b. After need-based aid and Princeton helping out too (Thank you Maxwell) WU may only cost marginally more that SOU which would be laughable considering how lame SOU is...
I am super super super crazy happy about this! YAY! :) Another plus is that Willamette is a private school, which means they've got a schedule which includes a month-long winter break as well as a summer break that starts mid-May and goes until the last few days of August. Which is a big yahtzee for me.
That is all. Please continue to go about your days. <3
