I can say I knew her when

Much jubilation in the emeraldsedai family this evening, as my niece Lil got her first big college acceptance letter--from the USC film school!

Assuming there's some money coming with this amazing, elite offer, she'll be off to LA next year to study screenwriting at the place that's "...like Harvard Law School for film."

Her mom, my sis avventura1234 deserves massive kudos for raising so very cool a kid. My niece herself, of course, deserves equally massive kudos for being a combination of Hermione Granger and Wonder Woman all through school. And now she's gonna go major in show business.

How cool is that?

Pretty freaking cool.

"a combination of Hermione Granger and Wonder Woman" -- Must be some kid, to get that kind of a description!

Though I say it as a family member, she really, really is. Near-perfect SATs AND an athlete. And pretty.

Seriously. If I'd known her in high school, I'd have had serious envy problems.

I forgot to mention that she specifically got into the screen writing program. Future Jossephine Whedon! (She is a huge Buffy fan, after all!)

Yup. It's an exciting time in a teen's life. We're really proud of her.

That's ALL kinds of kick ass! Wow, I've even met her mother and her aunt. Does that make me as cool?

That's great news!

And when things get to the 7th level of cool, I believe Dante finally meets Beatrice...

So that's really cool!

Heh. Yeah. Since there's no possible way this side of the family could do more than buy the textbooks at a place like USC, the success of this venture will depend on scholarships. Fortunately, Lil has the kinds of grades, test scores, and extracurricular activities (including sports OMG) that give her hope there.

How very wonderful! Great congratulations to Lil and Helen both! Wow, some day I can say I knew that person when she was a kid! Such an exciting time in her life. Ahhh, do you remember how that felt? The world open to you and what ever you wanted to pursue? She is a very fortunate and excellent girl!

"Excellent and fortunate" about sums it up. Great combination. She'll go far, and we can say we knew her when.
