The long arduous path is over … sitting snugly in my mailbox at 1:30 am in the night was that much anticipated email – “Welcome to Kellogg” 😀
Heart skipped a beat, mind went numb and I stared with disbelief and unblinking eyes. 8 months of preparations, networking, hard-work, bloody-mindedness, creativity and thoroughness had finally culminated in an email I will treasure for ever.
Ahead of me now are lots of decisions – I have an 8 month window ahead of me, with complete freedom. There’s a world of possibilities out there – continue my job, do an internship in another interesting field, backpack across the globe, take those music lessons, train and run a marathon … the opportunities are endless. It is going to be a busy Christmas and new year vacation :).
I will take a couple of weeks to let the news sink in, celebrate and then unwind with a trip to Malaysia and Singapore for the New Year. Hopefully by January next year I will have the next 3 years of my life sorted out.
To all fellow applicants, I would like to congratulate others who have been accepted, all the very best to those still waiting for results and/or gearing for R2 applications. May all your wishes come true this new year.
