D. didn't get into her dream school. Crushed is too light a word...she is beyond devastated. We're halfway across the country from each other and I ache for her. I wish more than anything I could give her a hug right now.
This rejection brings up a lot of questions we didn't want to consider. We're both just flattened. We had so much hope that she'd be up north in my city. Now it's looking like the closest she might be is 9 hours away by bus.
I got into my dream school, why couldn't she have? I just want my best friend to be happy. For us to be in the same city would have been a dream.
