I was informed a few weeks ago that if I want to graduate in April 2008, I need to fill out an application soon. Anxiety flooded my body. Can I really be so close to finishing? I feel like I there can't be an end to my schooling yet. It's only been 17 years; isn't there more? It's all I've ever known. I don't know which sickens me more though, the thought of graduating or the thought of getting a masters... I'm at the point now where people are asking me what my plans are, and honestly, I have no idea. Before I got married , my dream was to go to graduate school in California or New York. After I wanted to go to a publishing convention for 4 months in NYC, DC, or Denver to work with the top publishers and editors, spending a mere few thousand dollars just to be there; and then I would live in San Francisco, rent a flat, and work for a publishing company. As a married woman... cricket noise... We'll see what happens.
