can it be spring break now?
I am jealous of all of you who have either had or are currently in the middle of your spring break. Mine is not for another TWO WEEKS. Argh. It runs from March 28 - Apr 1, although I suppose for me it's from March 23 - Apr 4 given my schedule plus the weekends. Since I have a real job, spring break just means that I don't have to go to class on three days. But still, it's a definite psychological difference!
I plan to use that time to finish my AmNovel essay, aka "grad app writing sample," which I've been working on. I had a good weekend of thinking and note-taking. I'm not concerned about the actual writing of it, just the note-taking and general structure. But I got the general structure all worked out in a phone call with my SMART FRIEND
, which had previously been a big mental block.
[I should note that she's not my only smart friend. I have several. The way I wrote that sentence seemed to imply that she is the only one I have. Without this note, I fear I would be in deep doodoo when the other smart friends read this.]
Also, this whole blogosphere thing is really cool, since my favorite blogging boy
offered to read it and I wouldn't know him except for blogging. Since he doesn't live in my state, I won't be able to see him point and laugh at it, Nelson Munch-style, after he reads the drivel that it will likely contain. That's a key factor to asking for help—not being able to see the teasing that would follow.
