So last winter I began yet another bout of applications to Grad School.  6 applications to 6 schools, and although I had an interview at my top pick; I didn’t quite make the cut for the program.  This being said, I was accepted to 2 of the programs of which I applied to.  I have elected to attend St. Cloud State University in the Applied Behavior Analysis program, beginning next month.

So, for the majority of the summer I have been incredibly busy.  Over the last bunch of months I have been setting up financial aid, communicating with the department and university, researching and applying to apartments (I have one set up now), setting up things for my move, packing, and studying to refresh myself on pertinent information; all in anticipation of beginning my Masters program.  In addition, I am turning 26 in a week and need to set up health insurance for myself with no idea what I am doing.  It has been a very difficult and time consuming process, especially seeing as I live in Michigan, 10 hours away.  

Now here we are, only 2 weeks away from my moving date, and I am beginning to get very nervous.  Although I am very very excited about beginning the next stage of my life, it is going to be long and hard and will be a huge test of my resolve and ambition.  I want to make sure that I give this everything that I’ve got so that I can do well, but there are so many other things on my mind.  I’m moving away from everyone and everything I’ve ever known.  I’m adding a massive expense to a steadily decreasing bank account; 4 years of work and it’s all disappearing quickly.  I’m accepting that I’m going to have to get a job in addition to the Courses, Study time, Assistantship hours, and personal reflection that I’m going to need to engage in.  I’m not only looking towards a large change in where I am and what I’m doing: I’m looking towards a lifestyle change.  

This is all very frightening, but very thrilling at the same time.  As much as I am afraid, I am far more more hopeful and enthusiastic.  This is the culmination of everything I have done over the last 8 years of my life, and it begins in only 2 weeks.  

2 weeks….  Here we go.

So, I know that it’s been a long time since I’ve been really active on here.  And there is an explanation.  I’m going to be a little vulnerable here in a moment.  Just give me a little while to type it up…
