I received my official letter stating that I haven been accepted into the next academy class for my dream agency! The problem is, they delayed the class from next week until January. In a way, it is nice because I will get one last birthday and holiday season at home with the family. I was just really looking forward to going this month though. I guess I have waited close to three years with this departments process already, so two more months won't really matter. I look forward to starting this wonderful career soon enough!
