For being able to describe something is hard, imagine having to describe a feeling, that is harder. When you do something for the first time, you tend to be nervous, because that's part of doing something you haven't done. I'm going to describe "my first big success". 
It was three years ago, in April 2010 to be exact, when I got an email that said that I was accepted at the University of Puerto Rico, Rio Piedras Campus. When I read that I started to yell so hard, that my throat hurt very bad the day after. After I got calmed down well I never calmed down I only stopped yelling, Ja Ja. I literally called every contact I had in my phone and of course I put it on my Facebook status, so that everyone would know that I got accepted at the best university in the island. I was very proud of myself that my hard work had payed off, and also my grand-mother, and my mother had graduated from this institution. So I was the third generation to come here to study.
I remember that the alarm guy was in my house when I got the good news, and that I jumped so hard that the chair from the dining table dropped to the floor and he started laughing at me. The sensation I got was butterflies in my stomach, and I could hear my heart pumping. I was so nervous for about the month before because the emails starts to getting to high school students since march, so when that month comes along the tensions arise. And there is when you start asking yourself, what I have done is it enough?, Am I gonna get in?, I should have study harder since the ninth grade, etc. And a lot of more questions you ask yourself and when you're friends get the emails before you, you start getting the bad vibes, that maybe this is a sign that I'm not gonna get in, I'm fucked up and I have to settle for another institution or another faculty with a lower "IGS". But when you get that email and see what you want to see you would feel the adrenaline kick in. It is the best feeling ever.

Something I have to say about the estructure is that you should make it like an essay, and bring a little more space between the paragraphs. But, Overall Nice, post. Well described. I felt relied to it because I felt the same way that I received mine.

I think this is something we can all relate to since for most of us it was the first time we had to try to get in a school and I remember very well what you mean of your friends getting their emails before and being freaked out about it. Your writing was very good, it was easy to relate to and you could tell the emotion of the moment. The only thing I would add is a picture of something so that visually its nicer.

I can't even begin to describe how envious I am of your feelings. You conveyed the enthusiasm and excitement perfectly. I know exactly what that emotion is but I've never had it. I wish I was more grateful, more excited. I thought this post was very heartfelt and adorable.
