Everything is working out fine!

Posted on

At least in my mind. Let’s all clap for positivity.

I’m in the last two weeks of my undergraduate program, graduating in the middle-ish of August, and can’t really believe this is all happening. As some of you may know I’m going to move back home after graduation and between graduating and going to grad school. (Too many “grad”s in that sentence.)

Moving is horrible. It just makes me aware of how much stuff I’ve had to buy for living outside of the house and it makes me want to keep it for when I live out of the house in the future. (If I go out of state, though, that’s completely impractical.) I plan on moving a bunch of stuff home next time I go, in order to make the final moving easier, although moving is always stressful.

Onto the good stuff! I’m doing well in my classes. The cooking blog is very fun and I have had a good experience with it so far. I’m also finally succeeding in my newswriting class, proving to myself that English classes have not ruined my ability to be concise and not flowery. I’m finally getting my applications in to grad schools, minus the extra materials that need to be mailed such as transcripts and letters of recommendation (which are in the works now! Getting in touch with people was difficult but I think it’s finally happening.) 🙂

Transcripts are $10 each which I think is way more than they should cost. It’s just PRINTING and SEALING and MAILING. It should be more like $5.  =/

However, my opinions don’t matter and schools are always money-hungry. Who knew applying to grad school was so expensive? *sigh*

Hello everyone!

Welcome to MLISgirl, a blog made to document the process of getting into a Master’s degree program in Library and Information Science. 🙂

I’ve selected nine programs to apply to, in various states/locations. I’m graduating at the end of this summer and applying around September-October for Spring admission in 2012.

Feel free to comment on your own college experience/grad school entry experience/suggestions or just to say hi. Thanks all!
