in which i won’t be moving to new haven

I heard back from Yale today. I was regretfully rejected. Bah.

Oh well.

Cross your fingers for me that I’ll get into one of the other schools I applied to.

in which i am halfway there

Today, I brought my second complete grad school application to the Post Office and waved goodbye. Which means, I am officially halfway done with grad school applications. More than halfway, actually… because I only really have to put together the portfolios for the last two. I have everything else ready for them.

So, really, all that stands between me and being done with the finishing-grad-school-applications stress is two portfolio-formatting sessions and the FAFSA application.

And then, I can welcome the will-I-get-into-grad-school stress.

in which it is already 2009

Umm… hi. I simply can’t believe that it is 2009 already. Where did 2008 go? I feel like I was just starting to hit a groove with 2008, and it’s been ripped out from under me! Hopefully, the groove will continue in 2009.

My New Year’s Eve was incredibly uneventful. In fact, I was in bed, asleep by 9:45pm. I didn’t have any plans, and I was tired… so there ya go. I actually worked half the day today, before exploring the recently opened Metro with J — we hit up Target and Taco Bell… really classy, right?

And so now it’s 2009. And now comes the time of resolutions. I typically suck at resolutions. I kind of pick a few of the classics — eat healthier, work out more, keep in better touch with friends — but never really make any progress with them.

So instead, here are some things that I say I will do, and what I hope actually happens!

I will finish my grad school applications this weekend.
I hope I get in!

I will eat more fresh fruits & vegetables and real meals.
I hope I can resist the ease of frozen pizza and Taco Bell!

I will make a valiant attempt to lose my belly and tone up.
I hope I can survive CardioMax!

I will write old-fashioned letters to friends instead of emails.
I hope they enjoy them as much as I will!

I will maintain a daily planner and fill it with inspiration as well as tasks.
I hope it turns out as pretty as I am imagining it!

I will start taking out my camera more often.
I hope I can get inspired more often!

I will save more money.
I hope I can save more money!

I will read more.
I hope I pick inspiring, interesting and fun books!

What do you plan on doing this year? How do you hope it all turns out?
