I don’t even know why I’m writing in here again.
This blog’s days are definitely numbered. I might end up doing what Gina did and start another blog at the WordPress.com web site. Eventually, I’ll just let this domain name expire and I’m reasonably certain nobody is reading these reflections anyway.
That said … I find myself with a few things to say.
As of this writing, I am 35 days away from graduation.
I’m not going straight to graduate school, though. I’m going to be taking a year off and working, mainly because I didn’t get into any of the graduate schools I applied to, mainly because I didn’t find anybody to mentor me on my road to a Ph.D.
I have fixed all that at this point. The lucky institution is likely to be the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where the lovely and talented Professor Rudolf Colleredo-Mansfeld is to be found. He is a colleague of our very own Jason Antrosio and I have talked to him about applying there. We have agreed that I have found what looks like a good fit.
I am ecstatic.
Meanwhile, this year off will give me a chance to rest, save a little money and enjoy no longer being broke … at least for awhile. Who knows? I might even write in my blog a little more often.
I am in the running for an attractive position with the local county Industrial Development Association … because you know there was just no way to keep me away from economic development, right?
I’ve been kind of doing a yo-yo thing of up and down, especially in light of the nightmare I’ve been having about my car. But, right now, in spite of my transportation issues, I’m feeling pretty good about things.
