I woke up today in a fantastic mood. I couldn’t really figure out why. I went to bed really late after helping Tiki with her statistics homework – got more to do tonight. I watched some episodes of ‘The First 24’ and had some Oreos and chocolate almond milk before bed.
I woke up and watched more tv (‘A Baby Story’ on TLC), did some writing, ate a mock chicken salad sandwich (damn that Whole Foods for making addictive food!) and checked my email. Finally, I got word from the last school, Indiana, that I had not been admitted. It’s good to know, finally. I’m not sad about it. I applied to 6, was admitted to 1 with funding. All is well.
Over the past week or so, I’ve been in constant contact with professors and directors at the school in Ohio. When I finally checked my voicemail, I had another message from the PhD Director clarifying some stuff and letting me know that he absolutely wants me to be in his program. That made me smile. It’s good to feel wanted. I feel wanted. It’s in an urban setting just like my former/current school. I happen to check graduate school rankings and learned that the college is in the top 20%, they’re in the top 10% for urban studies and their communications (where I’ll take management and some organizational communications courses if I choose) produces an immense amount of research and publications with and without student collaboration. That’s a good thing.
So, now me and my homie are hitting up the dollar movie to see Juno. The dollar movie is fun ’cause it’s never crowded and it’s only $1. I mean, what else do you want! lol
I’m making plans to drive up to Ohio next week to visit and introduce myself to people. I’ve never been that far north, but I’m excited.
I’m in a really good mood!
