On Some Other Good Stuff

Oh, yeah! I forgot to mention some other cool things, in addition to the stellar field-placement opportunity (keep thinking positive thoughts for me, people!):

First, I send a little update to one of my professors from undergrad and got back the most lovely, warm response within hours. It made me laugh out loud and tear up a little bit. It totally made my day.

Also, someone I know (sorta) saw the photo I took above and said that I probably live in an anthropologie catalog. Now, while living in a catalog is perhaps a little contrived and materialistic, this was a huge complement because I would love to be the kind of woman who surrounds herself with beautiful, eclectic, and unusual things, which is sort of what Anthropologie represents to me.

And I made a chocolate cake for no reason at all.

And I feel beautiful these days.

Also, when the faculty contact for the Beth Israel placement saw my resume she said it looked spectacular, which is a huge vote of confidence and meant I owed my dad a call for all the help he gave me with it!

And I think that's it for now, but that's a lot of things to feel great about. I'll savor them for awhile.

PS: Could people offer some thoughts on wardrobes for this interview... supposing I get it? Do I need a suit?!

On Pure Will Power!

Think really positive thoughts for me, and envisioning me getting a placement here:


On too much time

I know I just posted that thing about how I have all these wonderful friends and whatnot. It's still true, it hasn't changed.

But now I've returned to normal life and the social engagements have diminished drastically. It's okay, I need the time go get things done. However, it's only the beginning of the semester and things haven't gotten too chaotic yet and I feel lonely. All wanting for companionship that had sort of gone away or been crushed by busyness is all back again and I don't much like it.

I think it'll go away again. By the time my first paper is due (a month from now) I'll be all "friends? I ain't got no time for having friends" (because that's how I talk). But right now it's not much fun.

So, hi! Sorry to post something cranky and/or depressing. Hope you don't mind!
