Re: HOLY CRAP, I'M GOING TO GRAD SCHOOL!!!

Thanks!!

This is the same reason why I never want to celebrate my birthday anymore. I hate knowing that I'm growing up, living my life, experiencing milestones like this one, while I can't share them with her. She doesn't even get to enjoy her own... :(

Re: HOLY CRAP, I'M GOING TO GRAD SCHOOL!!!

Many congrats!! ;D

Not to overstep bounds in saying this, but it seems that you are greatly honoring her memory in how you're living your life; by reaching these milestones and achieving these things, it shows your strength and fortitude (...mate) in that you solider on doing the best you can, which you clearly are. Even I, as an outsider, know that any friend of yours would be proud, so I'm sure she would. :)

Re: HOLY CRAP, I'M GOING TO GRAD SCHOOL!!!

Congratulations! Are you going to wait on more acceptance letters before you decide on a school, or are you going to go to the school that has sent you the acceptance letter?

You're not oversteping bounds at all. I really appreciate you saying that. It helps a lot. <3

I want to wait for more letters before I make my decision. This one was from McMaster, which is an incredible school, but I mostly want to go to Laurier for their Tri-University History Program. I have until March 20th to accept or decline their offer. Not much time at all, so hopefully the other schools I applied to will hurry up!

Haha no, but I should probably brush up on my kickboxing skills if I have to move to a big city.

That's pretty sweet! Congrats again, Pittielynn! ;)

What will you do with your degree? (Other than frame it. -_-)

What's the difference between a philosophy degree and a pizza? The pizza feeds a family of 4.

Congrats Jasmine! How exciting! What are you going to do after?

I'm *hopefully* getting my Master's degree in 3 weeks. It all hinges on how well I defend my thesis.

Re: HOLY CRAP, I'M GOING TO GRAD SCHOOL!!!

Good luck!
I plan on (and should have already been) submitting resumes to DHR, various mental health places, and places for people with disabilities. I put in an application to a place a while back, but never heard anything back from them - perhaps because it was too soon.
I might end up stuck at my current job for a few months until I find something. Hopefully if it comes to that, my hours will pick back up since I won't be going to school anymore.

I have nearly made a career out of college. lol I started back between sophomore and junior year of high school...when was that? Like 2002. I don't even want to think about grad school.

Oh, and what's your thesis? I forget your major. English or something?
