The spring semester starts a week from today. And I'm really glad, because...
I transferred my laundry from the washer to the dryer, cleaned the lint screen, and walked away. About 10 minutes passed before I realised that I hadn't turned the dryer on. If I'm going to be that senile, I'd like to be able to blame my homework.
Two of the three schools that I applied to for grad school have had one issue after another with keeping track of my paperwork. Meanwhile, the third one has had no issues at all. If I don't get into school #3, I think I may cry at the thought of the frustration that surely awaits me for the next few years.
We had some friends in town this weekend who wanted to go to IKEA. So we went. Holy crap, do I ever love that store. I have such visions of things I'd like to do with my house now. You can loft a queen-size bed, right? I'd better get back go work before I start trying to cram this stuff into our budget.
On the other hand...
I still haven't finished the massive stack of books I'm reading for my research project. Nor do I have any idea what my thesis will be. And I have to email my instructor, who I really like, and tell her so. Perhaps she'll be relieved to have one less thing on her plate if I can't pull this together.
One of my classes was cancelled for the semester, so I had to sign up for another one in a hurry. I chose a Shakespeare course (yay!) that meets at 8 AM (boo!) and has about 10 required books (yikes). I emailed the prof to ask if owning The Complete Works of Shakespeare is sufficient or if I really need to get the particular editions he has listed in the booklist. Still waiting.
This is the semester I graduate. Holy cow, that went by way too fast. Anybody want to take bets on whether I remember to order my cap and gown on time?
What are we talking about today?
Some days have themes. I don't necessarily post something in each of these topic areas every week.
Sunday: Church-related or spiritual things.
Friday: Green living.
