I live in a condominium with a mean age of 67 and every so often there will be a note on the bulletin board informing the building of someone's death.

Last night, the elevator smelled like decaying human.

... I totally checked the bulletin board this morning.


PS. I'm seeing Legally Blonde: The Musical March 22nd!!!!!!!

This is how my GRE went:

-Woke up with a migraine... took medicine but it didn't help at 7:30 am
- Got to the administration building where I was greeted with a sign: "Due to a leak in the hot water main there is no heat. Dress appropriately." Soooo.... It was fucking freezing!
-Half way through the exam it turned into a sauna. I was no longer cold in my hoodie but dying of heat! The great thing was I couldn't take off my hoodie without leaving the exam room to put it in my locker... because sweaters hanging off of chairs are strictly forbidden! I didn't want to leave and waste my exam time so I sweated it out.
- The whole test I had a ridiculous headache and freezing feet/ sweaty pits and I wanted to kill someone.


Amazingly I did phenomenally on the quantitive portion. But my verbal looks like a shat all over it.

I'm taking it again... this time at 12 noon :)

I have spoken to four professors about my Letters of Recomendation and all four of them would be "more than happy/ delighted/ over the moon about..." writing me some sweet letters. Actually, all except one, who is unaware of the fact that he is in fact a professor at FAU. I started to question his capacity of LoR writer when he started to violently scribble shit down on a partially used napkin... even more so when I noticed his false teeth were chillin' on his desk. Therefore I will kindly accept his sealed letters when I pick them up from the Psych office then quietly dispose of them.

Thankfully my other three will be solid and say things like, "Oh that Christina! Her brilliance is better than a Blow Job!"

I also have to get my transcripts sent to all five schools. FAU is pretty awesome and has everything online but charges $10 a pop. Flagler wants $5 but is kind of behind on the times and wants everything done my snail-mail. On the bright side I get to break out my check book and write some checks! I haven’t done that in forever... nor have I licked any stamps, so I call it a draw.

Tomorrow I will finish the first draft of my Letter of Intent and finish filling out all the online applications.

I'll be on campus so let me know about things.

Soooo... my 24th birthday is coming up.

I need ideas for a theme party. It has to be a completly obscure theme, something totally akward and original!

It's 2009. Reminds me of the best Christmas Eve toast that was eve uttered...

"Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year to all of us... because Christ knows we need it!"

... My mom's amazingness is so subtle sometimes.

And I leave you with teh wish of a Happy New Year to you and your loved ones.

i just bought a 250GB External Hard Drive and I'm afraid I don't know how to use it to it's full potential! ALl this clean memory and all these files I want to keep safe... Hmmm. Now I get to sit here and figure out how to orginize files. I'm so excited.

My GRE's are on January 10th, I'm not quite sure if I'm prepared. Additionally, I hate it when people give me unsolicited advice about the exam. There is always that one person who expresses there "dissatisfaction" with there 1300... and I want to kill them for it. No... you are not a help.

I just filled out my first grad school application; I just have to write my personal essay. I feel that there is an exceptional amount of pressure regarding my GRE scores and my essay. My GPA is not as competitive as it should be, and although many advisors have assured me that it isn't too bad and they take other factors into account in regards to acceptance... I cant help but feel pressured.

I want this all to be over...

Is there such a thing as Post Graduate Depression because I totally feel it.

I wish I has something amazing planned and in stone, but instead Im just in limbo.

People are in Graduate school... People are moving... People have career oriented jobs... And I'm working at Stir Crazy. Danny assures me my time will come. I just wish my time was now.
