busy, bored and tired
applying for transfer schools, scholarships and fellowships is exhausting! it's such a looooong and dulling process that finishing the written personal statements is barely the beginning. then you have to track down old test scores, college transcripts, community involvement records, bug professors and friends for letters of rec, ensure that you have all the required material bundled together for the proper app, and submitted before the quickly approaching deadline. gah! it's the middle of January. i suppose i'll look forward to April when all is taken care of, and then late may and June for what will hopefully be acceptance letters (hope, being the key word.) and free money for college is always a good thing, as well as undergrad preparation for the foreign service (crossing fingers for the Pickering Fellowship)!
