Truth: I just spent the weekend in Washington DC and it was awesome. I’ll probably post a recap soon(ish), but until then you can see about one-fifteenth of the food that I ate on Instagram.
Truth: I haven’t responded to all of your amazing and thoughtful comments in, uh, forever. Your words mean so much to me and while I hate taking forever to respond, I hate responding in a rushed, hurried way even more. It’s on my list. I’ll get there.
Truth: I just took on two new volunteer positions. Those coupled with my nannying job just made my year “off” a whole lot busier.
Truth: My diploma came in the mail! And it only cost tens of thousands of dollars! What a bargain. In all seriousness though, I can’t wait to get this sucker framed. So exciting.
Truth: Grad school applications are starting to come together, but I think I’m getting my first wrinkles in the process (<< exaggerating; I still have at least 5 years of good skin left). It’s just so overwhelming! Resumes and letters of rec and personal statements and volunteer verification and transcripts and GRE scores… For eight schools. AHH!
Truth: I’m not going to say which schools I’m applying to because (a) I don’t want to jinx things and (b) rejection is hard enough without everybody knowing about it. I’ll let you guys know when/if I get in and what my choices are (if I have any)!
Truth: I’m dying for some RAIN! California has been in a severe drought for about a year now and we need it bad. Do a rain dance for us, okay?
Truth: I don’t get the pumpkin obsession. It’s a squash. It’s orange. It’s a vegetable. Yeah, it tastes pretty good, but really. CALM DOWN PEOPLE.
Truth: I can take or leave Halloween, but I’m already excited for Thanksgiving. It’s the only day of the year when it’s socially acceptable to bathe in gravy.
Truth: I still suck at Twitter. Seriously. I just like Instagram SO much more. Tweeting is confusing and weird and I can’t get into it. I have no thoughts that can be summed up into 160 or 180 characters of whatever. All of my thoughts require a hell of a lot more space than that. I’ll keep trying though, because I’m not a Twitter quitter.
Truth: I don’t think I have a future as a poet (see: “Twitter quitter”).
Truth: I got a parking ticket today. $43 of bullshit (<< not really, because it was a two-hour zone and I was there for, like, four hours. But accepting responsibility is for goobers and douches.).
Truth: I had a super productive day and I’m feeling hyped up on life…
Truth: … Except I’m also really tired.
Truth: It’s 7:52pm.
Truth: I’m gonna go eat ice cream (probably), shower (maybe), and watch TV (definitely).
