real-world applications

As of Saturday, I am an applicant for GWU's MA in Ed and HD School Counseling program.

Oh dear god.

I am supposed to hear back within four to six weeks, but I have no idea if that time frame is for the interview or the final admissions decision. I'll just assume that six weeks from now I'll be really really sad. Now I'm prepared.

I'm so excited about the idea of grad school, and yet clicking "submit" on the application didn't feel the way I thought it would. The application was this giant deadline looming over me, but there wasn't any real relief or sense of accomplishment after. (Actually, Keri and I finished season three of Lost the next day, and I felt far more accomplished then. Also, wtf Lost? But let's not discuss that here, largely because I am only halfway through the series.) I suppose things haven't sank in yet.

So, yeah. That's the big update. Sometime within the next two months I'll hear some potentially life-changing news. In the meantime, I'm thinking of back up plans for both employment and school. That should help me with my serious case of to-do list withdrawal.


  1. you went a whole MONTH without blogging! i'm glad this is all over with-- i need something to read at work.

  2. Both you and Keri should be blogging more. We don't have cable television and we have cut back on our magazine subscriptions, so we sit here in the dark waiting for you to post something. If you don't blog, we will read People magazine - or worse!

    P.S. It's not that we're totally self absorbed; we also support your bid to further your education.
