In no particular order:
-Finding out that my ACT scores were high enough to be considered at my now college.
-Finding out that I had been accepted as a Post-Secondary Education student at my college, meaning that I could start college as a high school senior and get that first year free.
Really really bad five minutes (at the time):
-Finding out that my temporary driver's license wasn't valid when I went in to take my driver's test to be fully licensed, fearing that I'd have to wait another six months and potentially have to retake driver's ed.
Totally awesome 5+ minutes:
-Waking up June 17th, 2000, and realizing that the night before I had dedicated my heart, soul, and mind to God, and realizing that I had a future before me like never before.
-Experiencing praise-and-worship later that morning as a new, baby Christian. Everything that I thought was good before that couldn't compare!
-Finding out that there actually is communication research already done on some of my areas of interest, so I don't have to conduct all my own research to find out more.
