Solid Gold Baby!

Honest to goodness I planned on immediately updating a list of five things I was good at so as to balance things out, but clearly that didn't happen. So instead how about a random update about my life featuring excessive exclamation points?


Surprise! I'm going to grad school! I want you to know that I'm doing this grudgingly. I don't want you to think I'm not still very upset that the fancy job, solid gold house and snazzy dental plan I was ASSUMING were going to show up after I got my bachelors degree never materialized. Oh I gave it a fair chance, I've been waiting for almost a year now but the C.F.S.G.H. (Committee For Solid Gold Houses) has yet to contact me. Lucrative as substitute teaching is, I decided it was time for a change. And so, after attatching a crisp twenty to my application, I was accepted into a counseling program for the fall! I'm excited, I think. I'm glad to have a plan again, and I was really happy to have the summer off to have the maximum amount of fun before signing my life away for the next to years. Imagine my heartbreak when I discovered on Friday that while the program itself doesn't start until September, I have three prerequisites I have to take this summer. RUDE! I just keep telling myself that two years isn't that long, and then I'll have a masters to hang on the fridge. (And thats probably when the house shows up right?)

Okay, your blog title is one of the BEST ones I have EVER SEEN. LOVE.

Congrats on grad school. I loved it. And thought it was way easier, and more fun, than undergrad. Mostly because everyone there actually WANTS to be there, and most of them are on their OWN dime.

Wait, there's a committee that hands out solid gold homes? I wonder if it's as easy as making them a batch of brownies? I'll look into it.

Are you headed back to UCLA for this?

Yay! Hannah! I, too, am planning on grad school this fall (or, maybe spring(I'm still feeling lazy)).

Ahem. Will you be attending said grad school at your alma mater? (aka: with me??) Also, I started my blog and linked yours, even though you were not sitting next to me during my first post as previously planned...
