IT'S IN

My professor pulled through for me at the last minute--all right, granted, only ONE of the applications was due by today, but it's one I was really pulling for. I've been spending the last week waiting for a recommendation to come in on my AmeriCorps application (...okay, so I was late finishing up my personal statement as well), and now it's here! Now I can actually look through all the programs in the Seattle area and start sending in applications.

The first thing I noticed is that most of them are in a suburb that's, oh, about an hour and a half away from where my roommate's going to be going to school. (That's by public transit, which is allegedly very good in the Seattle area). Others look like they might be up to two hours away. Which, hey, I like sleeping and reading, so I'll be fine. And most of the programs allow you to work during off-hours, so I could probably pull a few closing shifts at the local Target, if I can get that transferred.

(On a Target note, I'm apparently on a year-long academic leave which doesn't expire until August? So the fact that I had knee surgery isn't looking like it will be too much of a problem. Physical therapy starts tomorrow!)

Now to submit a lot of applications and--more terrifyingly--send inquiry emails to program directors. Eek! At least my parents FINALLY got DSL. *pets the non-laptop keyboard*
