My Life is Complete.... at least for the moment

OMG, OMG, OMG....
Pardon my teenager moment... I got the most amazing news on Friday... So this semester I was attending CCBC also known as the local community college (I was taking difficult courses, English 101 Honors, Intro to Philosophy, U.S. History part 1, and Art Appreciation) So, I got my grades in:
English: A, Philosophy: A, U.S. History:B. Art Appreciation: C (I didn't turn in a paper.) That adds up to a GPA of 3.25!!! Which I am pretty proud of, I am fairly intelligent but I have a tendency to get bored and not turn in homework. Thats why I <3 college, no busy work! So I got my grades around 11:30 on Friday and I emailed them to my admissions officer at George Mason University and at 12:30 I got this email back, "Although I'm not impressed with a C in Art Appreciation, I am offering an early holiday present. You've been admitted for spring and your admission letter will mail on Monday."
I was at my internship in VA at this time. Its a law internship at the law office where my middle sister works. To sume up I screamed when I read the email, cried in front of the managing attorney while he was eating his lunch, went into my sisters office and opened my e-mail account and had her read the email without telling her anything about it, she got excited and I got even more excited! I called my mommy and my bestest friend and my friend who goes to GMU. I am over the moon at the moment. Plus, Santa apparently is getting my a George Mason t-shirt for Christmas!!
I now have to start my dorm shopping! Luckily my mom saved my older siblings dorm stuff in our attic so I have a travel iron, bed pad, and other boring stuff. I am, however, getting the fun stuff, sheets, pillows, posters, lamps, etc, etc... Any suggestions from those just out of college, in collegem or a more then a couple years out of college are welcome.What is needed, what is fun to have, and what is a waste of money? The only thing I am concerned about is bringing too much clothing, but I am on a academic team that requires buisness suits, heels, stockings, etc. (I know... I am a dork) Luckily, GMU is only 1.5 hours from home and like 15min away from my sister (not that she has clothing storage space... but she does have home cooked food :) ) So, my whole wardrobe won't be too far away. Well, any advice is welcome...
Happy Holidays to all whether its Christmas, Hannukah, or Festivus. And GO PATRIOTS!! Ciao for now!

get a cork board - one of the ones you can put up in squares with double stick tape - it looks pretty fugly at first but by the third week it will be covered with pictures. a great way to keep the memories without taking up valuable desk space with frames and crap. Also, one of those rubbermaid storage towers is totally crucial - just the plain plastic kind with drawers - a good place for jewelry boxes headbands socks accessories personal stuff toiletries and snacks etc etc. Also, I used the top of mine for my printer because i never had enough room on the top of my desk in college haha. Anyway those're just a few things I can think of off hand - if I think of anymore I'll comment again woohoo! and let me not forget CONGRATULATIONS SWEETPEAAAAAAAAAAA! HAPPY HOLIDAYS! *big hug* A-T

Kate: Can't wait to hear your advice :) and let me just say, I always get a little confused when I see an email from blogger saying 'kate' posted on my blog when I haven't posted a response comment...

Anne-Toireasa: The cork board idea sounds really cute... I might try covering it with some fabric just in case it takes me a little longer to get tons of pictures. I definitely am getting the storage towers, I have about 8000 headbands/ribbons/etc that will need some sort of storage. Thank you for the congratulations! Happy Holidays to you too!
