I got it, I got it, I got ittttttt! Naku mahahalikan ko ang buong mundo nito. I have no classes today dahil may appointment ako sa IHK (Industrie und Handelskammer) Industry and Chamber of Commerce early this morning. Hindi ko pa nabanggit sa inyo ang tungkol dito but the multimedia school director told me before to apply for a scholarship which is called “Stipendium zur Begabtenförderung” in english “Scholarship for Outstanding Students”. Nag apply nga ako and had to take an Aufnahme Prüfung
(Exam) last December 4. I passed the exam with 96 points, the minimum points required was 88. Akala ko, kuha ko na ang scholarship dahil nakapasa nga. But then I received a letter which was telling me na nasa priority list na daw ako and that the head office of IHK has to decide about it first kong sino sa 120 scholarship applicants ang pipiliin. Tight daw kasi ang budget so they are forced to pick just 25 students. Kinalimutan ko na actually ang bagay na ito dahil foreigner nga ako and I heard somewhere na first priority daw ang mga local residents. You know what I mean?

Yesterday afternoon, I received a call from IHK asking me if I could come to their office at 8:00 o’clock in the morning today. Medyo duda na ako kahapon but I still refused to believe dahil baka kakaiba ang resulta sa iniisip ko. So pumunta ako doon this morning and a Mr. Tiggellers greeted me with his sweetest smile I think. The night before, nagbiro pa si hubby na dapat daw akong magsuot ng mini skirt, sus naman di ko ugali ang ganyang asta. In the office, he asked me to sit down while he was flipping some documents. Gee, I was so nervous di ko alam where to look. After a few minutes of silence what seemed an eternity, he asked me about my plans, why I want to study webdesign and so on and so forth. Then comes the the moment where he said “Sie sind auf der Liste dabei.” which means you are among the list. Muntik na akong mahulog sa inupuan ko sa gulat at tuwa, ngiti ko eh hanggang tenga or mukhang lumampas pa nga yata (hehehe). Mr. Tigglers noticed my exitement kaya minadali niyang sabihin ang iba pang mga guidelines tungkol sa scholarship and then he wished me goodluck. I thanked him and bade goodbye and hurried home and called hubby in his office and told him about the great great news.

Yessss I made it!!!
