Is this little girl ready for graduate school? Yes, she is. This past year has been a whirlwind. I went from investing time and money into applying to law school and then in the last leg of the process I realized it wasn't for me. At least not at the moment. Then, I started taking web design classes at a community college. This has gone well but I just don't think I'm the type of person to have a 'grown up' job. I can't follow the typical path, never have. Plus, I dream of a life of mobility, traveling the country with a pack of stencils and a load of spray paint. I have decided it's time to pursue my MFA. I'm doing it. Against all common since and most likely my parents blessing. I see these signs a lot. Mostly when I'm contemplating my goals and aspirations. When I see them I think, "Thank goddess it's not a 'one way' sign" but really I don't like the idea of any limitations. What if I want to go a different way? Like straight into that flowing field of grass? If I had to chose between this sign or a "one way" sign I would take this but it's still food for thought. Anyway, I deviate. I have narrowed the schools down to five. I WILL apply to all of them. Here they are in order of preference:
This fall/winter there will be road trips to as many of these schools as possible. If you're up for it, come along. Partake in the next major decision I make in my life!
