    For those of us who haven't heard yet...

    I contacted the geology dept at Western and they said they’re just trying to figure out TA stuff at this point. We should hear soon!

    If anyone is looking at this these days... is there an update or more info? I got into CWU for this fall and I’m still considering where to go.

    Let’s manage our stress together

    That’s how I manage the morning lifts. I’ll just have to do that in the evenings too!!

    I’ve never even heard of it! If you’re recommending it I’ll be sure to look it up!

    Goals! I lift in the mornings as well but I have a hard time motivating in the evenings to do cardio.

    I need to watch Brooklyn 99! I think the humor will be right up my alley. I grew up doing musical theater so Crazy Ex-Girlfriend is fun for me, but, be warned it’s a musical tv show!!

    Exercise is the best!!! Walking and running for me are great for thinking and weight lifting is for focusing on something other than my head spinning in circles over school. At the moment I’m rewatching Community with my bf and on my own I’ve been watching Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and Grace & Frankie. Thanks for the well-wishes!

    Edit: I’m not currently enrolled in school but I work full time at a job I’ll leave when grad school starts I’m also trying my best to focus on what I’m doing in the moment. I work full time so I’m TRYING to focus on current projects instead of wondering if I got into my top choice program that’s holding out on sending my decision. Also going to the gym. I can’t help but forget about everything else in my life when I’m lifting heavy things. And watching funny TV in the evenings. The waiting struggle is real.

    For those of us who haven't heard yet...

    I can’t believe it’s been another week without hearing. I’m set on emailing Monday as well. It’s probably a good idea to start looking at those lab jobs — at the very least you’ll gain experience applying and potentially interviewing.

    Post here to get your worries off your chest

    Excitement: I got into a MS program with an amazing advisor with great funding! I don’t have to stay at my job for too much longer! Worries: I haven’t heard back from my top choice. The application period was over January 15th so it’s officially been crickets for two months. One person has posted on the results that they got in and heard two weeks ago. Someone else posted on another forum that he applied to the same program and his resume is a hell of a lot better than mine. The school I got into is in a city I’m not excited about living in and I already made my bf move to the shitty town we’re in now for my job. I don’t want to do that to him again. I want to know for sure where my life is going to be for the next two years.
  11. I was freaking out all day about hearing back and I was literally drawing a bath to try and calm down when I got the email. I don’t know why I was flipping out so badly that day, but that was the day I found out I’m going to grad school! Needless to say I cried happy tears into that bath haha.
  12. I feel the same way. My job was already nearly unbearable, hence the grad school applications, and now time is going to drag even more. But I also feel like all the work bullshit is going to roll off me a little easier since I’ll only be there a few more months!

    How are the 2019 applications coming

    I also got accepted at Central. I was the one who posted about being on a waitlist to be a TA but I finally got offered a position. I’m also available to chat if anyone wants to.
