    2019 Applicants

    registration isn't for a while but i know i have a required intro to critical thought/theory course, whichever russian course i place into, then i need to poke a bit through the catalog and map out a happy point between a schedule that fits me and is stimulating/fulfilling.

    it was hard, but i luckily got hooked up with a friend of a friend looking too and she found us somewhere that i absolutely adore as well through a private owner. we'll actually be a ways north of campus area but still an easy commute via metra. if you haven't checked out the maroon marketplace, that might be helpful if you're really eager to stay in hyde park. i had tried and it seemed most places didn't open up before july. i got the gig! 40 hrs a week starting tomorrow through september for a pop-up concept, and i explained my availability will of course change then but if we mutually work out there's potential room to stay on part time. i am SO excited.

    i'm in chicago already and couch-surfing until sunday when i can sign my lease and start moving in! it's been fun running around chicago for about a week now applying for jobs and touring apartments. i have an interview tomorrow with a super-renowned restaurant group for a server position and i'm crossing my fingers like crazy. i miss reading for fun/research, but it can wait until i'm settled. right now, i'm still in shock that i live here for the next two years. i'm so excited for you, @Bopie5- enjoy the summer :]

    Prepping for Fall 2019

    i'm in the midst of finals and trying to apartment hunt at the same time because i'm moving up to chicago in a few weeks. luckily, a good friend already lives in the area and has been touring and meeting with landlords. i'm working on getting a summer gig lined up serving/bartending at a fantastic pub and have another opportunity for a career forming in the pipeline! just had my last night at my crappy job and i feel like i lost ten pounds. i'm currently reading a book called journey by moonlight by a hungarian writer, and i'm really enjoying it. i came across it in the stacks looking for another book, and went with this instead. my last week or so here should be relaxing. my brother's birthday is during my graduation weekend, so i'm going to skip walking and just celebrate my brother and hang out with my friends and family. that was a lot. it's been a long month.

    2019 Acceptances

    nice! and eesh, i've only been through midway but know i wouldn't want to be stuck in either airport there. ended up taking the 2 year chicago maph option. turned down another offer but a combination of things made this the best option, mostly for language studies and a potential post-school career move. and super cheap rent! i guess i can deal with the bears/blackhawks/bulls for two years.

    2019 Acceptances

    @Bopie5!! i am SO STOKED for you!!
  10. would taking a year off after already having two years-ish of time off in the past be any kind of disadvantage?
  11. just want to throw in how much i appreciate everyone's perspectives in here and how helpful this thread is in making a decision.

    "yinz" is the pittsburgh/appalachian "y'all" but much funnier. i want to say it comes from scots-irish. my current assignment for film class has me citing youtube and it's been launching me into a half-serious contemplation of uh, everything. who would have thought ten or twelve years ago we'd be citing the cool video clip website for academic purposes? sure, there's runaway irreversible climate change and i lose my insurance this month, but i can cite youtube! (wow, i got depressing fast. i swear i'm fun in real life!) but i think my excitement slash fascination is just a curiosity about internet culture and memory.

    are you sure they're a real undergrad and not just christopher walken in makeup? purdue's mla guide online has been my lifeline to figuring out where the punctuation and parentheses go together when i cite things. i'm so useless without it, haha. one of these days, i need to just send them a "thank you" card. on classism, i was actually thinking at work last night about "y'all" and "all 'y'all"-- a guest used them in the same sentence! hence the thought- - and a lot of derisive/defensive sentiments around the word that i've heard growing up. there are plenty of environments down here where you aren't going to use or hear it, but both fill in so perfectly what i think is a glaring gap in the english language. ( i will mock pittsburgh and their "yinz" all i want, though.)

    though i know nothing of german grammar in reality, the thought of german comma usage tickles me because german is inherently sort of funny to me. (i mean that in the least-worse sounding way, of course.) russian has some peculiar rules for comma placement that throw me off switching back and forth every day. i edited a friend's friend's paper a bit back for a business course and had to write a gentle overview at the end about subject/verb agreement. and other things. she was bright, but i think just struggled on paper? i have trouble all the time with punctuation inside quotation marks, now that i think about it.
