  1. First day of classes is September 4. Here's the academic calendar for 2012-2013.
  2. I've already moved twice with my rabbits (well, only once with one) and I feel terrible at the thought of doing that to them again. But the alternative would be leaving them here and probably never seeing them again...
  3. I am not sure whether to go "awww" out of pity for her or "awww" because I find the thought of a drooling cat adorable. A lot of airlines allow cats and small dogs in the cabin for a surcharge, though. Unfortunately, nearly all airlines have banned bunnies from the cabin, so my boys either have to be shipped or go under the plane. Luckily, they can go in one carrier, so they can at least be together...
  4. I keep telling myself I should start learning how to deal with unstructured time now (my current work schedule is pretty light and the work is undemanding) so that I have good habits when I get to grad school. But it's really hard to change my mindset after months of anxiously waiting, checking email, trying to make decisions -- it left me kind of dazed when all of that just ended. Not that I want to experience that again! It's just a weird transition period, I guess... /rambling nonsense
  5. YAAAAAY! Congratulations -- to echo bdon, we've been rooting for you! Now you've got some major celebrating and/or relaxing to do!
  6. This week my school posted fall classes. I did this: I am so freaking excited.
  7. Me! I've got 3 months left at my current job, and they feel ENDLESS. I just wanna go now! It's too far away to start making concrete plans (apartments and so on) but close enough to still be really exciting.
  8. Now all I can think of is discussing critical theory by a campfire while roasting marshmallows. Wait, that's summer CAMP.... Definitely some misreading on my part.
  9. Yeah, I won't be flying across an ocean AGAIN, so my visits are over. Honestly, I'm wondering if it's time to throw in the towel on this wait list situation, because it's just turning into torture.
  10. I've got a similar situation. I have major reservations about accepting a school I won't have a chance to visit, so I'd like information. However, I don't want to seem like a nag, and I also have no idea if I'm going to get as accurate an impression from emailing as I would from actually meeting people....
  11. This. I just sent out a bunch of emails to POIs at one school, and I basically want to hide from my computer/phone now. I know it's ultimately no big deal to them, but I'm just not good at saying no.
  12. Mmmm, cookies. I got a ... let's say sympathetic look from the checkout girl today when she she noticed that my purchase included, um, more than one kind of chocolate.
  13. He's Just Not That Into You: Graduate School Edition Seriously though, I know what you mean. If/when you get off the list, though, don't sell yourself short because you were waitlisted (or your peers, obviously). That's all I meant.
  14. Don't compare kinds of acceptances! An acceptance is an acceptance; it's an accomplishment whether you got it right off the bat or had to wait a little while longer for it.
