While I wait for my mom to edit some grad school application stuff I figured I’d pop in and let anyone who cares to read that I GOT AN APARTMENT!! I finally made the decision to move to Portland. After much thought I realized that Oregon is the best state around so of course I should move there. Finally, after 6+ months I have a place to call my own (or I will in a few days when I move in). It is so needed, there is only so long one can wander around without privacy and a place to unpack your clothes. Now here’s hoping that I like Portland!
In other news, I thought my grad school application was due April 1st and very recently learned it was February 1st. This news set off about 24 hours worth of anxiety as I scrambled to gather my thoughts. Luckily, I have nothing but time and have made quite a bit of progress on the application and only hope my recommendations get done in time. I feel like a slacker who has been out of school way too long but can’t wait to get back into the world of academia (if all goes well).
And in other amazing news, I will be insured within a day or two and I am ecstatic. Being uninsured makes me paranoid so this is a relief. What a life of luxury I’m living with BOTH Health Insurance and a home.
