    It's hard to imagine that at this time next year, I'll be in my second semester as a doctoral student! A life-long dream that will actually come true...

    After receiving my admittance to one of my top choices, I probably slept infinitely better than I ever had in the past four to five months... I can breathe again...

    Just sent thank you emails to the professors from my community college. Honestly, when I returned to school at almost 30 I wasn't thinking of even transferring to a four year institution. Thanks to their support and encouragementI transferred to a great undergraduate university. And next year I'll be attending graduate school. I have been truly blessed to be surrounded by such amazingly supportive people.

    At least this time I'll have 8 months to prepare application material instead of two; And I only need to apply to programs in one discipline (or two highly related ones) instead of two different ones; And I don't need to (re)take GRE or TOEFL; And since I've already failed once, people won't have as much faith in me, so even if I fail again, fewer people will be let down. mhm....this doesn't look bad. *Getting ready for the second cycle in 2017 fall!*

    Just got a message from the graduate advisor at UK and I can't check it because I'm at work and don't want to get emotional. Two hours until I find out my future.

    Hey I have a question for you! I applied to Grand Valley State and got waitlisted, they didn't tell me much other than they interview less than 100. Is there anything you can tell me about it? Like if we are numbered on the waitlist or if they'll call everyone for an interview from 2nd tier if they need more candidates? Also if accepted for a spot to interview can it be via Skype do you know? I am currently and SLPA in Texas and this is my second time applying to schools and also second time applying to Grand Valley.

    I just wish all the schools at least send their rejections so that I could get back to work without worrying. It is excruciating that they don't have specific dates by which they would respond and most graduate offices do not reply to mails :/ I'm completely okay with acceptances and rejections both, but I'm just tiered of waiting and worrying.
