grad school, politics, knitting and other meanderings. And not enough time for any of it.

First Day of School

Jony is here visiting. I wish Jony was always within hanging out reach. I don't think we ever ran out of anything to talk about in our entire lives. And the first day of school is today. I didn't get the PA position I applied for. So, I will be falling back on the promised PA although it is less money. The important thing now is to go to financial aid with some kind of appointment letter and beg them to put my tuition remission through so that I have have the refund so I am not broke any more. I am nervous about all of this, but with some work it should all go through this week. Here's a little list to start the school semester: Things I like about the beginning of school: 1) new notebooks, pens and pencils 2) shopping at staples for the above supplies 3) taking the bus. Other people might hate this, but with my ipod and knitting, bus trips to school are great. 4) more structure. I like the free for all of summer, but having to be someplace a bunch of times a week just feels better. 5) taking a seminar with a new prof hopefully will be good. Things I don't really like about the beginning of school: 1) statistics class. yuck. 2) new grad students. yes I know I was one once, and I know I should be welcoming and shit, but I don't really care. That's just the space I'm in, ok? 3) sitting through boring talks. I'm sure (I hope) there will be some good talks, but there are bound to be some boring ones. the ones you can't leave because your advisor is giving everyone who does the evil eye. 4) inevitable prelim studying Time to pack my backpack and make some coffee.
