girlfriend called today and she made it safely to Nairobi! didnt get to talk long, but was just happy to hear her voice and know she arrived. work is wrapping up, one more week, then VACATION! except i have a mountain of grading and then report cards. ugh.
also, my grad application is wrapping up as well…just finished my statement of purpose and personal history statement and the many many details of the online application. what a pain. and annoying knowing also that i probably have little chance of getting accepted. oh well, at least it gave me an opportunity to articulate a project i’ve been thinking about for a while now. and even if i dont get in, i have established a nice outline to pursue the project independently, and i have made a few wonderful connections with faculty and students…so not all for naught i suppose.
on friday, i turn in the app…maybe have lunch at filippos…return a few overdue emails…work on my MICHAEL MAGEE essay (which is actually titled My Michael Magee) and finish up a few more submissions and then damn i still have to do some christmas shopping!
COME FOR ME O SWEET WINGED VACATION!
and this song for your thurst:
