That's it.

I've officially applied to grad school.

Bye bye, $350 I may never see again. *fond wave*

All I've got left to do now are:

1 - Personal Statement for U of T Creative Writing Program (we are also calling this the Not A Chance In Hell Program)
1 - Personal Statement for U of T Information Studies Program
1 - Curriculum Vitae for U of T Information Studies Program (explain to me why we had to put it in the application form anyway o.O)
1 - Personal Statement for UBC Library and Information Studies Program (Possibly. I can't get a straight answer out of the various websites of the LAIS School, so I e-mailed to ask a human.)

Various transcripts are already en route, references are being contacted via computer as we speak, and except for scribbling a couple thousand words of Personal Statement (as soon as I figure out what that actually means), there is nothing else that I can do. I'll probably do them this weekend at the parents', where I can complain out loud where Mum can hear me - Mum Understands, and also she is a good editor. But aside from that, it's all out of my hands.


Okay, I'm kinda shaking, now, so I'm going to go have a lie down and perhaps watch some of my three seasons of Numb3rs. I would have a drink, also, but I don't like drinking alone. *twitch*

See, the fact that I had to re-type "twitch" three times is not a good sign. *twitch*

Congrats on grad school :)

*big hugs* If you need someone to commiserate with, I'm daroos2000 on aim. :) I just finished the first draft of the last of three personal statements - ALL FOR ONE APPLICATION! :)

Augh. Personal statements. I'm going to start banging my head on things soon, because that's the last thing I have to do. I'm supposed to spend 1,000 words talking about how I love books? Mrrghl.

Ugh! Try 6 pages on what research I've done, why I want to do more research, and how I "Envision my career". *eyeroll*
Nov. 21st, 2007 03:48 pm (UTC)
How I envision my career. "Teach me databasing and document restoration and leave me alone with the books, please." *headdesk*

Would you by chance be interested in trading personal statement reading services?

Just a thought.
Nov. 21st, 2007 05:58 pm (UTC)
Yes! Sure. Good idea. First I have to write them, I mean, but yes.

thanks a lot, ari. the world twitch has now lost all meaning for me.

that was one of my favorite words :(
so you ARE coming out this weekend, hm? so we can order shirts and you can bully Hailee into giving me back peacemaker since she's obviously too busy to read it? hm?
Nov. 21st, 2007 07:39 am (UTC)
You're still going to be calling it Peacemaker when we're on the red carpet in LA for the release of Dawnrise the movie, aren't you? ;)

Yes, I'm coming. Friday evening. Or, I get off at four. That's not evening yet. You know. *shrug*

absolutely. it's the upside to getting in on the ground floor. I'll call it whatever the hell I want ^_^ and I'll wear a beautiful dress and become a big star :D

I have work on Friday so if you'd like a ride anytime before six, I am declaring it someone else's problem. Also. Remind me. You have to read one of my stories. I have a rewrite due on Tuesday.

I got your text like a week ago and forgot about it for awhile, probably on the mental note "oh I'll reply to that later"

No, I'm not doing Nano this year, I think I'd cry if I had that much time to spend on writing.

I haven't seen you in awhile. We should do something.
Nov. 21st, 2007 02:52 pm (UTC)
Yes! When are you free?
Nov. 21st, 2007 07:07 pm (UTC)
Uhm. i'm relatively free between next Friday and the 5th. My last day of classes is next Friday, and then I have exams on the 6th and 7th. I might begrudgingly agree to work a couple of those days, but I'm hoping to get out of doing that. After that I'm not sure when my days off are.
