I have not talked about grad school on my blog and there is a reason for that. If I told the blogging world about applying to grad school then I would have had to tell you I was placed on the wait list for GVSU and WMU and that was just too depressing.
I was upset and depressed for a while. Well okay I’ll be honest I seriously thought about the what if … what if I do not make it? What do I do? What am I supposed to do? I have pulled all these loans, which I did not have loans for my undergrad at all, so loans are a huge deal for me. Eventually I just started creating different plans… Then settled on one plan. This plan would allow me to work year around while I beefed up my grad application and tried again.
For grad school we can get points for practice in the field. So, I decided to do a CNA course while finishing my pre reqs for grad school, and then get a CNA job. So, not only have I been neglecting everything … I have been neglecting this blog while trying to work, finish pre req classes at GVSU, and a CNA course in the evening. If you know me in real life or have spoken to me in any format …you know I am crazy. I plan…I worry …and I have a touch of OCD…okay okay…maybe more than just a touch.
Plan A: Go to grad school
Plan B: The plan was to work as a CNA, pay off all the debt that I could and then, reapply to grad school in January and then hopefully get in fall 2013.
Plan C: Find a Job as a CNA for May-Aug, work 6 days a week till grad school starts, then only work Sunday’s on call.
Today, I am a substitute teacher at the moment, I was at work and it was the last hour ….. my phone starts vibrating ….my hand goes to the pocket…. I wanted to answer but I couldn’t answer my phone. If the students I sub for can not answer their phones then I hold my self to that same standard. It was so hard to do because I thought it was a job offer.
So after work I sat in my car and listened to the message and … I hear her name …and WMU….and the number. There was nothing after that. I though huh…thats odd they usually say why they are calling. So, I called the lady back and she asked me if I was still interested in a spot at WMU OT grad program. I practically yelled YES!!! So, I will be going to WMU OT grad program in the fall. *happy dance*
I am so excited!!!
So here is to the next twenty eight months of grad school that starts in September at Western Michigan University !
