Grad School Update

I just got an email telling me I've been accepted to the Masters of Information Studies program at U of T for next year.

I saw the message in my inbox and, because I didn't recognize who it was from and it started with the word 'congratulations', I thought it was probably spam. I opened it up, read what it said and then my heart stopped beating. Luckily, it started up again a few seconds later, so I'm not dead or anything.

A few years ago, I applied to a bachelor of education program at a small local school in NB. I was rejected. It was a blessing in disguise because I don't actually want to be a teacher, I just felt at the time that it would be something to do career-wise, and I figured I'd have summer and Christmas holidays off (stupid reason to choose to be a teacher, eh?). But, because of that rejection, my confidence in my abilities to get accepted to any program, anywhere (much less a graduate studies program at the Country's top school) took a huge beating.

So, taking that into account helps give a picture of how happy and excited (not to mention terrified) I am right now. I'm so excited. I can't even describe it.


I'm going to go jump up and down and scream now... and then I think I'll throw up.

Ahhhhh!
