School’s Back In!


I start school today at noon and, well, I figured I’d give you all a heads up. Things may be a little quiet over the next few days. The reason? Well, partially because school is back in and partially because I will be putting the finishing touches on my graduate school applications.
I have officially turned in my applications to the University of Rochester, the University of Florida, the University of Oregon, and Oxford University. Oxford is completely done and I only have to send my supplementary materials (CV, statement of purpose, writing samples) to the other three. Those are only the most pressing applications as far as deadlines are concerned. Don’t worry, though. I won’t be putting off all the others until the deadline like those four. The others will get finished before February and all will be well.
So, wish me luck, send me money, because I’m broke, and I look forward to spending another quarter with all of you, even though you’re not here!

  1. Good luck! Be not buried by pending assignments of doom, nor suffocated by the wrath of grad school loans! May the light of scholarships guide your path, and the library/computer lab always open when in need.
