Remember Me?

Once upon a time, I got lazy and decided that my blog didn't need me for a while. Here I am, not promising that I'm back, but popping in to say hi. So HI.

Since the last time I was here, I got serious and decided that I was going to apply to grad school for the Fall of 2015. This isn't a decision that was taken lightly. I've sighed over and over as I went back and forth weighing my options. Wait until Kris is done his masters, get married, then go to school for 4 years or go to school while Kris is getting his masters, and get married when we're both done in 4 years or stay at home every day for 4 years and eat mashed potatoes, while not being productive to society and start to hate myself. Anyone see a pattern in the amount of time all of this will take?

Anyway, here I am with a handful of schools picked out and only one I that I really have my heart set on. I just finished the first 3 of many application essays where I adeptly make myself sound smarter, more worldly, and less lazy than I actually am. And I. do. not. want. to. write the. rest. of. them.

OH and I've started an online math class because why not torture myself even more? 

I keep telling myself it's all for The Doctorate. It's all for The Doctorate. 

Back to editing essays.

Here are some upbeat pictures to keep you from noticing the terrible (and complain-y) quality of this post. Ciao!


  1. You two are just adorable. I took my GRE and was sick the day of so my focus was all off and at this point, I'm like, well I'll apply and if it doesn't work then whatever.

    But then I panic because I also just really want to get into grad school. UGH.

  2. TEMPLE? again? ;-) Miss ya!

  3. Mashed potatoes sounds kinda good right now... hahaha! ;P

  4. Get it! I'm a big fan of education all the time. Call me a dork, but it's true!

  5. Where are you applying?! So excited for you!

  6. i'm so hungry and mashed potatoes sound perfect to me! also grad school apps suck all of the fun out of everything fun. what schools are you applying to?? ps: i love your new blog design. if it's been this way for awhile, i'm super sorry i'm just now noticing.

  7. I'm so happy to see that you and Kris are still together! I would love to go back to school to get my Master's...something I'm still tossing around. Lovin' your blog!


I love reading your comments and I try respond to every one. Thanks for reading!
