I am sure that everyone has different kinds of good news that they receive from time to time. 

Here I would like to talk about the best news I ever received, something that made my day, and to this day, I still remember it.

What it was?
The good news I received was that I had been accepted into the university of my dreams. Ever since I was little, I had dreamt of going to a certain university and working hard to achieve my goal. When I found out that I had been accepted, I was over the moon. It was a moment that I will never forget and something I will always cherish.

How you received this news?
I received this news in a unique way. I had been waiting for a letter in the mail with the results of my application, and I was eagerly awaiting the day it would arrive. However, it was not the mail that brought me the news. Instead, it was a text message from my friend. She had found out that I had been accepted and so she sent me a text message to let me know. I was so surprised and excited to finally get the news that I had been waiting for.

How you received this news? and Conclusion:
I felt this was good news because it meant that all my hard work had paid off and I had achieved my goal. I had worked hard for years, and it was finally paying off.
