Daily Prompt: Being Thankful!

Daily Prompt: You are receiving an award –- either one that already exists, or a new one created just for you. What would the award be, why are you being honored, and what would you say in your acceptance speech?

The only reward I’d like to receive would be one saying that I’ve made it to university – not the offer, but the actual confirmation that I have the grades and I am finally going. I hate speeches. I have never had to make one in my life but the presentations in front of my class are enough for me, thank you very much. But, say I did receive this award, I would try to force out a few words. Mainly ones of relief – relief that my college days are finally over and I can step up to uni. Whenever I say this to my family though they always reply with something along the lines of “You know that they’ll be work at university, probably even more than you do now?”. Yes, I do. But I don’t care. At this stage in my life, I am so ready for something new and exciting in a different part of the UK. So hopefully Newcastle here I come!
