It’s important to have dreams big enough not to lose sight when we pursue them. Oscar Wilde

I wrote this first on Facebook and because I liked it I thought I’d post it here, too!

I wanted to post this two days ago, but of course I didn’t have time (damn school).

Anyway just pretend to read this like it’s the 30th of October and everything should be okay.. (?)

It was half past three p.m on August 30th and I was doing the suffering subject that is mathematics. The day before I had been in Milan to do the English test that would have decided my admission to the program to study in the United States; I put so much concentration in it that I thought my mind was going to explode and that I was going to be (almost!) disgusted by English from now on. Before I left, they told me that I would have known the test result in a week. Instead the result arrived the day after (from which today [remember that I wanted to post this on October the 30th] has passed exactly two months); my mom nonchalantly put on my maths notebook (where I was solving a damn problem about the ellipse) the Ipad opened to the email in which it was written that I made it.

Goodmorning

We are happy to inform you that Giulia has successfully passed the admission test for the school semester in the United States.

I cried not only for several hours, but every time I communicated the news to someone so that she/him could share that joy with me.

Then I started to think that if someone had told me that I would have gone to the USA eight months ago, when the email that arrived was completely different and disappointing, I would never have believed it.

But most of all, I thought that Oscar Wilde was right:

It’s important to have dreams big enough not to lose sight when we pursue them.
