As I sit here listening to the new Lordi album, it occurs to me that I had at one point planned to do a blog on grad school. Not necessarily grad school as an institution, but what it means to me to go to graduate school, being the first person in my family to complete college, and the sort of crazy-ass anxieties I’m subject to when it comes to anything regarding higher education. I’m normally not vocal about this, mostly because it doesn’t matter in a lot of situations. It’s also really boring.
But I still feel the weird urge to write about grad school, or at least the application process, sometime — probably in the near future. Until then I’m scrambling to get application materials together, take my GREs, etc. This is by no means simple, since I have a pretty full schedule — lots of reading, mostly, like the theory stuff I mentioned last time, but also things for the class I TA, and my normal class reading, and also writing essays and things that are not essays for the creative writing workshop class I’m in.
You, being the bright little star-child you are, probably have figured out that this means shorter and/or infrequent blogs. Good job! Just keep an eye here and we’ll see what happens.
