    2 last days of this hellish job, whew. It taught me so much honestly. I met many people whose life stories were quite sad. I don't like capitalism and the way it deteriorates people's lives.

    My brother came out as bi. I love him and support him especially cause I'm gay myself but I am so so worried about my parents finding out (about both of us really lol). My dad....sigh....

    How Often Do Grad Students Get Paid?

    Thank you guys! It seems like it varies a lot. I emailed a current student and he told me they pay them monthly, which is a relief. I can afford September rent yay!

    How Often Do Grad Students Get Paid?

    Hi everybody, So of course I know that this can vary for each university but typically: how often do grad students get paid? Monthly or bi-monthly? I have saved enough for my first month of rent and related expenses, but not enough yet for the second month. I was told that the first payment is due August 30, and it may be enough just to cover my rent but leaving me with no money for food and other expenses, unless the payment covers a whole month.

    I was in a twitter groupchat with a few friends and I loved talking to them. We had it over a year. Last week they decided to make an iOS chat instead. Not all of us were Apple users though, and I don't even have a working smartphone right now. They didn't care and went ahead with the chat and pretty much abandoned our twitter chat. It hurt my feelings they did that but also, now I'm sort of friendless.

    I somehow found a place in University City within my budget. It looks big and nice and I am really excited, but living on my own sounds intimidating too. Oh well.

    Sooo I still haven't quit this summer job which I despise. Why? I don't know. I've made almost enough money for moving, though!

    I've been thinking and I am really not in a hurry to stop being a student. I enjoy school. If after my Ph.D. I cannot get any academic position, I have no qualms about trying law school or med school. The latter is more interesting and fun but the former is easier to get into. The thought of leaving school in my mid-30s does give me some anxiety in the sense that I keep seeing people from my generation popping out babies and buying cars and stuff--but I do not want that myself. Maybe--asides from academics (I'm 99% sure that's my path right now)--I don't know much about what I want. I want to do something that makes me feel alive and where I can interact with people. I also want to live abroad. I crave new languages and cultures. When did I become an adult?

    soooo housing search is still going on ehhh you'd think university housing would allow leases to begin in August when, you know, classes start... I can't afford to move in July ??

    You're gonna love the new Misty album if you haven't listened! It's easier to handle than the last one lol. I don't know much about Korean or Japanese music, but Kyary Pamyu Pamyu is so gifted. Not exactly indie since she's had a string of hits in Japan but she's so interesting

    so happy to hear from everyone in this thread where y'all are going! Congratulations i am going to miss this thread, what an intense last few months. Should we give advice to next year applicants as a goodbye to this thread? For me, I would say: 1. Don't underestimate yourself, unlike undergrad admissions in grad school they judge your interests, your personal statements, recommendations etc. When I first applied I was doubtful I would make the cut, but they look at your application as a whole, not just a test score or transcript. 2. Give professors plenty of time to write your recommendations. 3. Give your very best writing samples. 4. During visits, be confident and don't be afraid to ask questions to grad students and faculty. 5. Give yourself time, don't check your email twenty times a day during late January and February. The results will come.

    I am having a tough time finding a place ready to move in August, most places want an immediate move-in. I found a Skinker Debaliviere place that looks nice but they would want me to sign an 18-month lease which I'd rather not do. I think I'll wait til June to look, and that way I can save more for the deposit. That is, unless something comes up on the Quadrangle website now which I doubt. I'm leaning towards University City or Clayton South of Delmar right now.
