I’m in! And Mad Men.

I don’t know which school I will end up going to, but I can tell you that I have been accepted to 2 so far. (One of them is in my top 5!) Yes, I did only apply to 9 or 10 schools total, but I was fairly confident that these were the only schools I wanted to actually attend that also started before next fall, which would be too long for me to wait.

I’ve been working a lot lately and I don’t know if my job will transfer with me when I go away to grad school, so I’ve got to get all I can out of it now!

Also, I’ve been obsessed with Mad Men. I know I’m getting on the mad-men-train pretty late, but now I can watch all 4 seasons on Netflix and go right on through without interruption or advertisements. I love 1960s style and the characters are so easy to care about and get attached to. It reminds me of a (and it feels weird to say this!) more modern soap opera. It’s not super dramatic and unbelievable like, say, Young and the Restless, so it’s more interesting to me.

Anyway, that’s all the updating I had to do. See you later!

Everything is working out fine!

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*
