Day 244 - "Someday I'll Wish Upon A Star"

I emailed the program director (again - persistence is key, right?) about my interviews and she said that they are still conducting some interviews for certain positions, with some of the appointments being scheduled after April 30th. 

I guess it's still waiting time.  I just want to know!

I'll post updates as they become available.  Otherwise, not much is going on in life except working, working, and working some more.  I feel so run down and out of it that I honestly want school to start so that I can have a somewhat normal sleep schedule.  As in, going to bed when it's dark outside and waking up hours after the newspaper has been delivered, not as the newspaper is being shoved in the box.

Day 236 - "Patience Is a Virtue"

Still waiting on news about graduate school interviews.  My parents are trying to get me pumped up about getting my master's, going to grad school, and having my first apartment. 

I'm not getting too excited until I have an acceptance letter in my hands and I've pinched myself to know I'm not dreaming.  I don't think I could mentally handle getting excited and then getting rejected.  Been there, done that, and don't want to do it again.

I'll keep everyone posted.

Day 231 - I Can't Think of a Title. It's Late.

I'm still waiting for word on my internship interviews.  They still have some more interviews to attend to, so I'm hoping to have news by the end of the month.

It's been a long weekend and it's almost 11 on a Saturday night.  I, being the young twenty-something I am, should be out living it up, but I am too tired and my head is beginning to hurt.

Bed time for me.  I'll be back when I'm more awake, which may or may not be tomorrow.

Day 224 - "Just Sit Back, Relax, and Just Chill"

It's been a busy couple of days, but here's the update on my graduate school interviews. 

My first interview was for a hall director and arts/cultural programming internship.  This one, well, went okay, but I have almost zero residence life experience so I think this one has been knocked out as a possibility.

My second interview was for an internship in the academic advising and Registrar's offices.  So far, I think this one is my top choice and the interview went really well.  Not only that, if I want to be a professor some day, I need some experience in college academics - why not start out with advising?

My third interview was phenomenal!!!!  It was for a position with the Upward Bound program, which helps teenagers from certain demographics prepare and want to go to college.  The program coordinator is so passionate about the program that it's almost impossible not to catch her enthusiasm.  The interview felt so natural and honest that I almost have to think that this one is tied for my number one pick.

Now, I just need to sort out my thoughts and email the program director on Monday.  I may have to make a hard decision as to where I would like to go, which could take some deep thinking on my part.
