Delayed updates and MaCSLife
5 months, 1 week ago
Hey, it's been a month since I posted a blog post, so let me do that now.
I got into MaCS!
If you read my previous blog posts, you might have come across this one: MaCS Program Entrance Exam
I posted about the MaCS program and the exam. Then on January 23rd, a letter came into our mailbox. My mom showed it to me. It was opened. Her face was stern, but I had a feeling she was just making a stern face to play around. I found only a single paper in the mail. My heart stopped because when you get accepted into MaCS, in the notification letter, you get two sheets of paper. One is the letter of acceptance, and the second the course selection sheet. Then I thought that I didn't get in. Nevertheless, I opened up to letter and read the first word: "Congratulations" My heart stopped (again). I looked in my mom's face and she asked if I got in, and I nodded. We both burst into a state of high emotion.
Okay. Enough of the dramatic MaCS acceptance reaction. So to be honest, I kind of expected to get in (haha), but getting into MaCS felt like redeeming myself, which was satisfying. Also, there were people at my school that told me that I wouldn't get accepted into MaCS. I proved them wrong, and that was also satisfying. Also I will be eternally grateful to those who helped me along the journey.
Also, I got to contact the Mackenzie Computer Programming Team's members (the programming club in the high school I am going to) which was exciting! I can't wait to get into WLmac! Except that there isn't a lot of choices for optional courses in grade 9. But I am still happy.
Thanks for reading.
