La Vie En Rose for 2004 April 19 (entry 0)

Yet more evidence school has taken completely over >

[Comments] (10) Why I have decided not to go to a quarter Grad school: One of my PS books hasn't come yet (I ordered them... a month ago?) & I have a midterm next week.

Taking three classes, one seminar, & one 199 (indpendent research paper). Not to mention working 20 hours a week (is actually more like 17 or 18). Am coming up with crazy schemes to add another 199 if my petition doesn't go through.

Graduation is WHEN?

It's almost May. Hear that everyone? It's almost MAY!

This is my last quarter as an undergrad. Shouldn't I be enjoying it?

I just finished my last semester as an undergrad and I'm not enjoying it. School's school.

School SHOULD be enjoyable!

Susie typed that, and might I add she wrested my words a bit. I like school, but it's like any job--it can't all be glamour and large paychecks....Anyway, BYU is on the semester system!

I guess I am dreading spring quarter (before my internship) because I have two classes, one at noon during my lunch break, and the other at 5, the end of my 8-hour day. It's going to be a long two months for me.

You know what other school is also on semesters? ...

Don't even go there, Chris!

Berkeley is too, by the way.

Berkeley doesn't love me. They never even bothered to send me a rejection letter.

ENJOY THE INSANITY!!! you'll never have this experience again (until you become a TA and have to grade 20 papers along with writing 50 pages of your own).

One of the students here said today that nobody will hear from Berkeley until the end of April. She's trying to transfer there.

What??? Why on earth is the application due in Dec if they're not telling you until April? I'm just going to pretend that's for undergrads only, i liked not hvaing any false hopes.
