Terror and Excitement

Okay. So lately I’ve been rather excited about grad school, mostly because the degree is right up my alley: English and Publishing with a concentration in digital design. I love digital design, online publishing, and publishing in general.

I’m also terrified because it’s all new, and attending won’t exactly be easy or cheap. It’s an hour’s drive away, and I’m still working at UD full time which is in the OTHER direction from home.

And there’s money. Loans should cover tuition and direct fees, but many more expenses will grow out of this: software, hardware, and other non-textbook needs.

It’s safe to say that I’ll essentially be insane in about two years—I’m taking a collection now to cover the straight jacket! 🙂

Taking away some of the terror, however, was finding the above photo online. It soothed me into feeling a bit more inspired about the whole deal. This is the main building at Rosemont.

Time will tell whether inspiration wins out over the terror and stress. 🙂

  1. Very inspirational 🙂

    You’re going to kick ass in school—I’m calling that right now! But on your road to a higher calling, you’d better not forget about me 😉

    And, in reference to your comment below…how could I forget about you (and Tre, of course!)?! I’d be more worried that once you get your degree you’ll forget about me!.

    Hey, does that pre-mouthwash from Target work?

  2. Nah. I don’t forget people…except those who need to be forgotten. 🙂

    And the rinse DOES work. It gets the teeth squeaky clean when used before brushing. It whitens teeth to a natural white, not that crazy “vanity white.” Then I follow up with ACT Restoring rinse.

  3. I’ve been using the ACT Restoring…I don’t know exactly what I’m looking for with it, but my teeth haven’t changed. That may be a good thing—no change is better than getting worse?
