I finally wrote up the first draft of my personal statement! I have completed the hardest bit of the hardest bit of graduate school applications! AHAHAHA YAY. Now I just have to get everyone I know to read it and proof it!

(To anyone who's been wanting actual communication with me: I am so sorry, I've been v. busy and wrapped up in work again and hitting a low-communicative phase a little bit. I'm trying to get to all the things I need to respond to but this has been taking priority, so.)

Ahahahahahaha, my sister is coming! I'll be moved and have done with! THERE IS NO MORE WAITING!

I'm so excited.

Ahahahahaha I finally know where I'm living and what I'm doing for the summer! STRESS RELIEVED. Well, okay, it probably won't go away until I'm safely ensconced in whatever room in the summer dorm I'm living in that they give me, but at least I know where I'm going and (mostly) what I'm doing. AND I have a really good excuse to take that Psychology of Women course with Dr. W, even if it doesn't really fit with my schedule working for Dr. D. I'm probably going to come out to Dr. W sometime either this semester or next fall when I take Human Sexuality with her. I got very, very good vibes when I took a psych research class with her last fall, and I'm excited to have her again. Plus Psych of Women sounds like the most amazingly fascinating class ever, and commuting for a week will almost be worth it for the awesomeness. (Four days, even!) 

Also, my parents brought me fruit and knockoff Thin Mints and a WHOLE LOAF OF SOURDOUGH. Nom nom nom. This almost makes up for all the times they drive me completely batshit crazy. I shall devour the Sourdough Sunday, since A has run out of food money and L and C have gone home.

Now if I can just survive the next three weeks without going insane and spontaneously exploding, it'll all be good. Then I can establish a routine and a habit and then that will be disrupted in a couple of months, then I get two weeks off and DON'T HAVE TO MOVE FOR TWO YEARS. I can't express how joyful that makes me. I can just stay here and work and pay my rent, and it will be lovely. I'm so excited.

Because of a parental screw-up, my plans for Spring Break to go down to Florida with some friends and hang out on the beach got disrupted early this year. And I did a lot of bitter angsting about that, because my other option was to go home and stare at the four walls of my parents' home while my siblings went to school and my parents went to work, because my collegiate break doesn't coincide with the K12 one. So I sucked it up and decided to make the best of it, and I was planning to spend most of my break making myself get out of the house and go to Atlanta's museums, because I am a dork that way and at least that would prevent me from brooding and being bitter and resentful towards my parents. That would suck and only result in unpleasant fighting for everyone.

So I related these plans to my mother, who is normally pretty awesome, and she goes "well, if you're interested in museums, why don't you go visit your grandmother in DC for the week? I know she'd love to see you again." And I thought, "why did I not think of this?" because my grandmother is generally really cool and interesting and also she worked in the Pentagon for ages, so she has some excellent stories to tell. So my mother called my grandmother to ask if anything was going on and whether she'd be in the country that week, and as it happens she is and would love to have me!

SO I AM GOING TO WASHINGTON DC FOR BREAK. Eeeeeeeee! I'll get to see my extended family and potter around the Museum of Natural Science and the other cool museums in the Capitol, because for nerdy museum pottering there is no city like DC in the world, and generally hang out in the area I grew up in and lived in until I was eleven. And I just had my sucky angsty spring break plans transmuted into something I'm genuinely excited about and which I think is really awesome, and there is no better feeling than that!

Today has also been an awesome day in that I signed my apartment lease with A, so I am guaranteed Olivery goodness (and possibly a training project next year), and also I have Thin Mint cookies, and also I got an email back from Dr. D, whose lab I would like very much to work in, and whom I have an appointment to meet with on Tuesday. Oh my god, today has contained SO MUCH JOY. And pad thai, which makes it all EVEN BETTER. HOMG HOMG HOMG JOY EXPLOSION.
