Today, I am trying to get myself together to finish my graduate school applications. Graduate school is a touchy subject with me most of the time. Most of the time, I am excited about going back to school. I know exactly what you're thinking. Excited? About school? Call me weird, but I have loved school from the first day I went. On the other hand, I'm always thinking why go to this much work when I'll never get in? This stems from the whole change in my plans a year ago.
From the first day of college, my plan was to get my undergrad and go straight through to grad school. While I was applying to grad school the thought crossed my mind that I definitely needed to figure out what my back-up plan would be just in case I didn't get into grad school. That's where Disney World came in. I'm glad I had a back-up plan cause that's just what I needed. Although I still didn't even go with the back-up, at least I had it.
But, I keep telling myself that it's a different year, and I'm a different person. I have a related job added to my resume since last year. Maybe there won't be as much competition. I'm applying for the Summer session, hoping that it won't be as competitive to start then. I'm also seriously considering applying to the Distance program at Auburn University. I have to make sure that I am capable of completing it online though. I think I can, so I'll probably try.
Well, I have to get back to filling out these applications!
