At least it’s over

May 13, 2006

So today and yesterday were two of the worst and most painful days of my life. Thankfully they are over and a nice long phone call made me feel better. I am a bit lost at the moment and don’t know where I’m headed, but maybe I’ll get my bearings over the summer and come back in the fall with a plan. Maybe there is no plan. Maybe I’m not supposed to know what the next 10 years hold. Either way, next year has to be better than this one has been. So to all the graduating seniors, congratulations and best wishes. For those of us continuing on, I wish you luck and happiness, wherever you might find it. Hopefully my best wishes for you all will rub off on me.


I spoke too soon

Why is it everytime I think things are going well for me things get infinitely more screwed up??? Why can I not go ahead and get the results of the good karma already? Why is it that everytime my best friend is happy, my life sucks and vice versa? Summer better go well. I do not need a repeat of fall semester.


I’m not a total failure at life

May 9, 2006

This year pretty much sucked for me, but the last month or so have made up for it. I made cheerleader, was appointed to UCourt, raised my GPA, and the political science department has approved me to write an honors thesis next year. So take that RUSP! Even without getting into RUSP I can get do an individual research project and hopefully get published. Plus, I get credit for a political science seminar. That means that I have even fewer classes left to finish up!

I’m hoping that I do well next year in all my classes, especially for my thesis. That way, I have an even better shot of getting into grad school. I have been studying for the GRE and it is taking much more time than I anticipated. Unfortunately I have forgotten even the most basic mathematic principles and they aren’t coming back to me without spending a lot of time practicing. Thankfully my top two schools don’t consider the GRE scores. I’m so excited for next year!


Everything Happens at Once

May 1, 2006

I have finished classes, but I seem to be more busy now than I was before. I have a ton of work to do for my job, cheerleading meetings and practices, University Court Meeting, and studying for finals. Why does it all need to be right now? Everything is due before Saturday and then I have nothing to do for the rest of the time I have til I go home. I have exams on Thursday and Saturday mornings and then I have no school work left. What am I going to do around Rice for an entire week with no work and everyone leaving? Thankfully a few of my friends are staying around until graduation so I won’t be all alone. Well, I should get back to my work so I can get done and not go out of my mind. There probably won’t be any more updates until Saturday afternoon, unless I get a job for the summer.
