    Burnt Out

    At this point I am so frustrated with my thesis that even if I were to be accepted into a PhD program I would not go. I'm so burnt out on theology that I don't think I can handle another 5-6 years of it. Please advise.
  2. I've been having a good old fashioned Anglican hymn sing to cope with the stress. It's hard to be upset while belting CWM Rhondda and He Who Would Valiant Be... my neighbors must be thrilled.
  3. Has anyone else applied to Duquesne? If so, any word yet? I know the due date was rather late, but I'm having the palpitations waiting to hear.
  4. Waitlisted at Loyola Chicago. New levels of anxiety here.
  5. Duke, UNC, Loyola, and Duquesne. Yourself?
  6. Has anyone heard anything from Loyola Chicago or Duquesne?
  7. Has anyone else had an issue with the link sent by the admissions office at Duke Divinity?
  8. Things just keep getting better. Duke Divinity just sent me an email saying that I could view the admissions decision online- but the link is not working. Fan. damn. tastic
  9. First rejection today: UNC is a no. My POI sent me a super nice and very encouraging email though.
  10. Since February began I've gone through 2 bottles of scotch, a bottle of bourbon, and roughly 3/4 of a carton of cigarettes. You know. Just hangin' out here in Limbo.
  11. Last night I had a stress dream that the local First Baptist Church sent assassins after me, and Margaret Thatcher helped me escape to South America. So yeah. Thats pretty much where I'm at in my life...
  12. I haven't heard a peep from any of mine yet either. The anxiety is soul crushing.
  13. My personal favorite is Glenfiddich- 18. Though due to financial constraints I've had to move down to 12.
  14. This is literally the most stressful thing in my life right now. I have gone through 2 bottles of scotch a week since January began.

    Columbia, SC

    Columbia is really quite affordable. As far as places to live, you have plenty of options. My boyfriend and his roommates lived at a complex called Pavilion Towers and I think they paid about $350 a month (I think... I could be wrong on that one, but I know it wasn't much more than that). If you're looking for a furnished place, you can also try Riverside in Cayce (which go for $1200/mo for a 2 bed). Places/neighborhoods to avoid: Eau Claire, Broad River Rd, areas close to Ft Jackson, the area around Benedict-Allen. If you're looking to avoid the undergrads, I recommend hitting up the Whig. It's a great, somewhat dive-y bar just downtown. There's also a bar in 5 points called Speakeasy with a great happy hour ($4 cocktails, $3 beer), and the Gourmet Shoppe has a fantastic brunch. I also recommend the adult milkshakes at Kaminsky's. There's also a bar on the roof of the Sheraton that is lovely, though overpriced. Food wise- Burger 77, Miyo's (asian fusion), Kiki's Chicken and Waffles, and Zesto's are not to be missed. Oak Table is great (but expensive) if you're looking for a place to take a date. Cantina 77 (Mexi-Cali) is also really delicious, but it is small and usually very busy, so go at off-times. There's also a farmers market on Main St every Saturday from 8am til noon, and there is a Publix (aka God's gift to humanity) right downtown as well. Couple of other sundry things: 1) Gentrification/ extreme poverty alternate from street to street. Before you settle on a place to live, make sure you scope out the rest of the neighborhood. 2) You will be running your air conditioner non-stop during the summer (last year it was over 95 every single day of July) so budget accordingly. 3) Always make sure you keep change in your car because parking downtown is ALL metered during the day- though it is free on weekends and on weekdays after 6.
