You know I don’t quite know what I’m gonna be doing on this channel much yet. I don’t even know how consistent I’m going to be able to keep up with this Hi friends! My name is Aurora McClennan. I finally decided to start doing these! I’ve wanted to do this for a while so I’m so excited to finally get to start. Let’s hope I actually edit it and put it up um Yeah But I thought the best way to start this off would be Just sort of talk about what kick-started this today um I was going to hold off on starting this until I you know got into college and as of a couple hours ago, I had accepted a college offer Ahhhhhh…. so I’m going to be moving to New York and on the last weekend of august I’m so excited I’m really nervous, but I get to study music theater and do it in the greatest city in the world so I’m really really looking forward to that and Frightened but looking forward to it none the less. So I thought now would be a perfect time to talk about sort of my journey from Not having somewhere to go to some having somewhere to go because I had a lot of stuff happen even in just the last month and a half. I applied for nine schools, sent in auditions for seven. One of them I accidentally missed the deadline up and the other one by the time that I had I My audition was supposed to be, I’d already gotten all these offers as kind of like I’ve sort of known what I wanted to do since I was 11 years old I had these plans of what schools. I wanted to go to and things I wanted to do after high school and I had like everything planned out. I was so ready and Then you I applied to all these schools. I was happy with where I was applying probably was going I was really excited I got everything in by probably the first week in November I and I got back a Letter from one my top school, a bit later saying I’d been accepted academically to a school in the US And I was really really excited I got another letter saying I was accepted academically to another school in the us But I really wanted to go to I got a ridiculous scholarship with them And then they asked me to come in and do an in person call back in New York City I was like “Uh, yeah, i’m going to New York!”. So that was great two weeks before that I had my first audition here which went pretty well I think and Then I had the next week. I had my next audition here Which I felt pretty good about as well and the next week, we went to New York and I did my audition for that school when I got back It was a huge period Where I heard nothing from anybody And it was the most stressful period of time because all you want to do is Know where the hell you’re going next year, and there was nothing and then I got an email from one school in the us And I’ve been accepted there, and I was like oh amazing great. I have I finally have a place where I can go and then Consecutively over the course of a week. I got two rejections and two wait lists. I was wait-listed to my top choice Which was the first school that had sent me a letter. I was wait-listed to one of the programs here one of the ones that I was really excited about to and I was rejected from the one I had to go down an audition for and I was rejected from the major program here in Canada and I was very Distraught. I went through a good two weeks there where I just I felt so drained and so tired and Done it would I didn’t want to see anything else. I just that was it for me. I was like okay. I’m done I’m not going to go to college. I couldn’t cope with that I felt lost Okay, I feel like I’ve lost complete control of my life I felt like I was in the spiraling downwards loop that I couldn’t get out then terrified me and Then out of the blue One day I got an email from one of the schools that I hadn’t heard from yet saying I had been accepted and Yes, I broke down in happy tears. I cried for a good 15-20 minutes And then would you believe it the next day the school in New York my top school that had wait-listed me emailed me and said please check your admissions portal, so I did and I was off the wait list and officially accepted at school. So naturally that’s the school. I’m going to be attending the Reason why I’m telling you all of this is because I think it’s really really important that we remember We put so much pressure on ourselves To go to the rights tools to get the right education To do the right thing be the right person and all we end up doing is stressing ourselves out and hurting ourselves School is really important it, but cannot let who accepts you in who doesn’t accept you’ve define new Things will work out in the end whether they are exactly how you expect them to or not? I’m very very lucky that I was able to get acceptance this to schools that I was accepted to my top school Anybody out there applying to colleges soon next year whenever you see this The school’s you are accepted to do not define you Just because you’re accepted to a school that you don’t deem to be the top school for whatever does not mean But you’re never going to get higher does not mean that you are horrible You just need to go in there Kick some ass and come out on the other end and make the people Who doubted you people who doubt the school go oh my God that person’s amazing up? I want to hire them Your school does not define me you can go to The worst school in the world and still have the best career if you take what you need to take from it So whether you are accepted to your top school rejected from the top school? Whether you’re taking a year off Whether you still don’t know what the heck you’re going to do with your life? It is [okay] to be lost to be stuck. It is not okay to let something completely out of your control Control you and Define you Yeah Thank you for this thing to my little rant.
