I'm Accepted!!!

Is it sad of me to feel glad when I get accepted? Whether it's as a "friend" on Facebook or into Graduate School? I received my first acceptance letter into Graduate School and can you guess where it was? University of Idaho. Who knows? Maybe I'll be heading back to my old stomping grounds in the fall. They definitely have location going for it as well as the fact they have a PhD program as well that I can fast-track into, hopefully cutting a year off my doctorate. Man! That sounds so grown up...and so far away.

I haven't received any rejections yet, so that's a good sign. Is my ego so fragile it will break into a million pieces if I don't get in everywhere I applied? I think I'll be okay, especially since I know at least one school wants me...let's hope that's the first of many acceptances.

A girl's gotta have options!

Happy Saint ME Day!

You know I had to post since today's St. Patty's Day. I need to let my loyal followers and minions have words of wisdom from their leader..."Beware a green Yak. It may Yak."

You're welcome and have a good day!

New and Improved

So, I've moved my blog to blogger.com. I've found it's more user friendly than my old one and it enables me to have a cleaner design.

I'm sure you're wondering what's up with Patty? Well, I'm graduating April 10, 2009 from Brigham Young University--Idaho (but will not be walking). I will finally have my B.S. in English (B.S.--doesn't that seem fitting? I think so. I've definitely learned to B.S. my way through a lot of papers!). I've submitted my applications to Graduate School, but don't expect to hear back before graduation.

Let's see...news...um, I've had a paper accepted to the National Undergraduate Literature Conference in April. This is my second year and it's kinda a big deal. Undergrads from all over the country (Yale, UNLV, UCLA, Harvard, BYU, BYU-Idaho, etc.) submit works they've written, hoping to present it at the conference. It's a nice break from schoolwork, unfortunately the conference comes the weekend before finals, so no one from our school is really cutting loose. We all tend to scurry back to our rooms at night to study for exams. -sigh- only 18 more days of classes!!!

Um, that's about all I have right now, but I'll work on cutting and pasting my other posts to this blog, as well as downloading some pictures.
