…and it could be you
If you think it, want it, dream it, then it’s real. You are what you feel.
I’m not above quoting Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat, especially when it’s so applicable. (Tangent: I would do questionable things in order to play the role of Narrator in that show.) You see, I’ve been thinking about going back to school ever since I graduated. I’ve been wanting to get into a specific graduate school for the last few months. I’ve been dreaming about being a student again.
And now it’s real.
I checked my application’s status online on Friday afternoon, mostly because I like tormenting myself. And there it was like a beacon of hope: the “Accept Admission Offer” button. So I clicked said button and that was it. I don’t think it even thanked me. Talk about anticlimactic.
But I was offered admission into a Masters program and I accepted admission into a Masters program. I’ll start in August. I’m sure I’ll hear more soon. I’m just excited to be a student again, to have Big Goals again, to feel structured again. I’ve been craving academia like a crackwhore without a fix. (That’s poetic.)
Thanks for your good vibes and well wishes, Internetz. What would I do without you?
