    年复一年,梦还在吗?
    2005-3-18 星期五(Friday) 晴

      Last year around this time, I received an email from the University of Missouri, Columbia, my dream school, and my dream major, photojournalism. It's the only school that I applied for photo-J, while it is my most-desired school and major, because it might mean a major change in my career. At that time, I was so happy and so proud to get the admission from one of the most presitigious J-school in the US. But without any scholarship or fellowship or TA or RA, I had to drop it eventually, though I even tried to borrow tons of money from my aunt, who was quite reluctant. I came here to Reno, though still keep the first notice of my admission to MU in my email box, cherishing the honor and dream.

      It's been a year now. I've still been dreaming of a better chance. I applied for the same school again. And I waited, while being prepared to spend the rest of my graduate life in Reno. I did not lose my hope, but I know chances are slim. The school does not have a tradition to give graduate student much money in the first semester. TA/RA is only given after at least one semester.
      
      This morning I was happy to see an email I used to be so familar. The same sender, the same title "admission review results," two emails stand side by side on my hotmail list. What's different is the year, 2004 becomes 2005, and last year it's 03/19, this year it's 03/18. I was happy, and I was sad. I am happy that the school recognized my ability to be a qualified student again, but I'm sad it might be another bubble shining with dizzy colors, and then burst. The email did not mention anything about financial aid, which I'm yet to find out from the admission letter said to be following soon. I know I can't put on any hope, though I still can't help but hope.
