I don’t really know how to explain it, but I do not like being alone and it feels as though I have been by myself for quite a bit of this past year. This has given me the opportunity to really step back and look at my life in general; likes and dislikes, wants and needs, opportunities and mistakes.
I don’t know what I want out of anything really. I posted a couple of weeks ago about organising things regarding school and post graduate work/school and such and I have a plan. Be prepared for my life to turn hermit style.
6 weeks until exams… Other than the Harry Potter Studio Tour on the 19th, The Dangerous Summer show on the 26th, Hillsong Colour Conference on the 26-29 and Tough Mudder on the 12th of May, I plan on doing nothing but studying with all of my time. And training, of course, for the impending doom of TM.
Immediately following exams (June 1 at 13:00) I plan on spending as much time as possible with the friends I won’t be able to see for a while, you know who you are. LSERC does Paintball? We’ll see how I survive that one. Throw in Thorpe Park and I’ll be a happy camper. That is, until the day I leave when I’ll be crying like a baby. I love you guyyysssssss.
9 weeks exactly until flying back to the home land of good ‘ol North Cackalacky. I expect a BBQ Tray with fries, chicken nuggets with honey mustard and a Cheerwine float from Cookout upon my return from the person that picks me up from RDU. Please and thank you.
The following 12 days will consist of ridiculous amounts of fast food (Wendy’s, Taco Bell, Bojangles, Cookout, Panera, Moes, Chic-fil-A, etc etc) and lots of kitten snuggling with Kate. Perhaps some tennis matches and a couple of rounds of golf during the day after baking cookies and cakes and brownies and anything else I can create from the lovely kitchen on Knollwood House.
July 1 marks the voyage to Miami for my summer internship while living with Papa Joe in his new crib. Work work work, row row row, sleep sleep sleep. Flip work and row depending on schedules and then repeat.
During this time, GMAT practice class must be in effect. 180 hours I believe? I’m not too sure about that, but it’s definitely going to be 2 days of class per week up until the start of fall semester. Hooray Grad School! That’s not sarcastic, I am genuinely excited.
Latest August or middle of August, move into the new place of residence that will hopefully be awesome, though I’m just glad I have a kitchen. Last semester of college to take place until mid December made up of Business Finance, Business Communications, Sports Econ, Health Econ, and Ethics of Business.
Post grad applications for the first round are due between October 6 and 12, which means GMAT has to be taken mid September and essays need to be done between then, which is where I’ll be devoting the majority of my time.
Providing I get accepted into the next round of any of the schools I apply for, interviews will most likely happen in this time frame as well.
NYC FOR MAGGIE’S 21st! Or maybe just CT, but definitely a trip to NYC.
As for now, I am sitting in a hostel in Amsterdam pondering what I actually want to do. My guy instinct is telling me to spend a bunch of money on canal cruises and food, but all i really want to do is drink coffee and study a bit. I tend to absorb material better in foreign places so I am going to try to find some coffee shop to sit in and study for a while.
Bring it on 2012, I’m gonna kick your butt.
