74 Days and counting... [ Sunday
2 March 2008

74 days. I will be graduating in 74 days from now.

I have senioritis. bad.

I had an interview today for an award that I have been nominated for. It was a group interview and we each answered the questions they gave us one at a time, and for the first time I felt as though I might be the most prepared in the room. I mean, as far as interviews go anyway, who knows about practical application.

We'll see by wednesday or thursday, thats what they said anyway.

It is so cold. I am so cold. The oven is on and open to try to bring some heat into my icy little apartment. It smells like cupcakes and it is terribly taunting. There are no cupcakes.

I got my first rejection letter today. Apparently my resources or lack thereof make it impossible for Michigan State University to consider my application in a positive way. Well, thats swell. I will not be earning my Ph.D. at Michigan State.

This is just the first of another seven letters of rejection to come.

I have been nominated for an award through the psychology department and Richmond County Psychological Association. Thats cool. It's an honor just to be nominated. blah. blah. blah.

I might be going to the Eastern Colleges Sciences Conference in april to present on a relational aggression intervention that I am working with a couple Drs. with right now. That is also cool and will be a great experience.

In my internship I am sitting in on therapy sessions and it is wonderful. Today I got to talk to the client alone and it was great hands-on experience. The client is a male senior in high school with severe social anxiety toward women, especially girls his own age. Part of his therapy is to make eye contact and carry on a conversation with me. thisissocool.

Life is also teasing me with the option of going to Miami over spring break. 5 days on the beach. I wish I had money.

my life is busily wonderful right now.

I interning at a place right now where I get to sit in on therapy sessions and is it kind of amazing. I am going to learn so. much. this semester. It is such a strange experience not knowing these clients and hearing the most intimate details of their everyday lives. It is going to take some adjusting on my part, but this is what I want to do with my future, so that is exciting.

I really love almost all of my classes and I think I am going to turn out some work this semester that I will really be proud of.

I am looking forward to this weekend. Friends, food, drinks and good old fashioned fun at my place... aka superbad and board games. Either way it will be a good catch-up with friends before the semester gets too crazy.

So I am rapidly approaching graduation. That's all I have to say about that.

I miss Italy.

It has been a long time, yet again.

I am home for Christmas and I have never appreciated it as much as I do right now. Lights are on the tree and the fire is going and my dog keeps my feet warm at night.

This semester is the most hectic that I have ever had. It went by so quickly that I am still reeling. I officially have an internship for next semester at an organization called Freedom From Fear. I am actually going to be able to sit in on therapy sessions, so that is really exciting. I can not believe that next semester is my last, well at undergraduate at least. I am applying to Ph.D. programs right now. 3 more to go. Hopefully that works out, but I don't have my hopes up... we'll see.

I am going to see the dolls on new year's eve! I am excited, I haven't seen them in over 2 years. Then I am going to Florence, and I literally can not wait. I am over-flowing with excitement.

Life isn't too bad right now.

Happy Holidays all.

So livejournal tells me that it has been something like 24 weeks since I have posted an update. I remember a time in my not so distant past that an absence of that length would seem unfathomable. Anyway, I feel inspired to type into this little text box and update my friends list with words about my current life.

- I am staying at school this summer as a resident assistant impostor. I keep track of all of the foreign groups that have chosen to use the wagner college dorms as their home base while they are visiting the city.

- This requires very little work from me, which is excellent except for the part where it is much less lucrative than I would prefer.

- I just returned from a week at the beach. A week is no where near long enough.

- I am being teased by a mouse. He lives in my room, and I wish he would not. He knows that I won't kill him and he is taking advantage.

- I am seeing Rufus Wainwright on august 19th in central park.

- I am officially scheduled to take the GRE on august 22 at 12:30pm. oh shit.

- I am taking one summer class, which is officially the easiest class I have ever taken. I should be studying for the midterm on tuesday.

- I am moving into my new apartment on August 10th. That means that I have to pack.

- I have to apply to graduate schools/programs so very soon. I am unsure where I will be exactly one year from now.

- I am approaching a 2 year anniversary. That is just plain crazy.

- I am going to Italy in January.

- I am graduating in less than one year.

- I am going on a cruise in less than one year.

- I am wearing manshorts.

- I have, within the last 3 hours, had to turn down invitations to Siren Fest and the Eighties Prom at Webster hall for tonight because I need to study more before my online Kaplan resources for the GRE run out at midnight. Learning sucks.

Okay, my desk shift ending in 9 minutes.

maybe I will return to livejournal again sometime before I am 30.
