She finally did it! I’m really proud of my big sister.
She pushed herself really hard through high school to accomplish something that none of our family has ever done before, go to college.
I really hope when I grow up I can accomplish the same thing. The whole family is extremely proud of her. We are planning a celebration of her acceptance letter at the end of the month. Not much family is coming out but she has lots of friends that will be there. My dad started the preparations early because he is extremely busy with work and his business in HVAC. He has been helping lots of friends with their stuff recently. Mainly they wanted to make sure their a/c units are ready for the grueling summer. At times he does some air conditioning repairs and some friends ask him if he can install heated floors. They like those done before fall. He worked his way up in the world and grinded to be successful. My sister is hoping the college route will further her career faster. Our dad took almost 20 years after dropping out of high-school to finally get it together. He didn’t want anyone to fall in the same trap that he did so he is going to make this whole acceptance thing into college the biggest deal ever. My mom has been buying decorations and inviting whoever. She doesn’t have the same type of hype as my dad but she is excited. She never wanted to go to college because she wanted to spend more time with family than anything else. To be honest I think she partied a lot when she was younger. I only heard stories from her friends and that’s how my dad and mom met. I can’t wait for the party!
