So, I’m going with the MA in English. Provided, of course, they accept me. Since the deadline is tomorrow and I have yet to get my transcripts in, I don’t know what my odds are of attending classes in January. Oh well.
Can I just say, 500 word essays suck? Personal and professional goals suck. How ‘bout you take my money and just let me go to school. How about that, huh? No, I’m not grumpy. I would just rather draw a pretty picture with flowers and smiley faces than write a stupid essay about goals. My goal: to be a student. My goal: to go to class. My goal: to get a degree in something reasonably useful. Those are goals, but I can’t write that. Noooo… I have to write something along the lines of:
“My reasons for wanting to attend graduate school are based on my own need to learn as well as a desire to give something back. I can think of no better way to give of myself than to share my passion and creativity and I can think of no better place to spend the rest of my life than in a classroom, whether as a student or as a teacher.”
Blah. Crap. Garbage. But what do you want for 1:30 in the morning? I should scrawl that across the bottom of my essay. Maybe add a smiley face to take the edge off.
