Yes, folks, it seems I have achieved tuition remission. Holy Crap. How many obstacles had to be thrown in my way, how many times did I have to cry in public, and how many times did people have to keep kicking me while I was already down, before someone just punched that into a computer?
I went to bed without setting an alarm last night and slept in until 8:43am. I hate sleeping in and I need to get into a routine of waking up at 7am and having done a lot of constructive things by 8:43am. I'm having a hard time getting into the swing of school, and I think that is a combination of many different things. 1) Spending the summer working on my masters. So, now my body wants to have days off and that is not possible. 2) Freaking out about funding for the last 3 or so weeks and still not having a check in my hand. 3) Feeling more jaded about grad school then ever before (could that be for some of the above reasons?). 4) Having fun friends visit at the end of the summer and then seeing them leave. 5) I am sure there are more I just can't think of them.
Even my neat new notebooks aren't cutting it this semester. I have readings to read, a seminar to speak in (I get so freaked out about speaking in class it is ridiculous at this point). I have a book review to write by the end of the month, and the book is not read yet. I have a masters thesis on the precipice of being completed. And then there is also stats to study and stress out about. Oh, fun times will be had.
So, hopefully I'll get my check from UW tomorrow. I'll pay some bills, pay some people back. Maybe buy some new shoes. I finished my first sock last night, so I want some Birks to show the socks off with. I'll buy the rest of my school books and eventually I'll get back into the swing of things.
