Rhodes application submitted to my school’s internal deadline!

Probably not doing any thesis work today…that was exhausting.

this week’s update

  • fixing my resume
  • answering the questionnaire that accompanies the internal application for the rhodes at my school
  • applying for a women’s mentoring program for the coming school year
  • looking into other programs in the UK (specifically UCL, where they are apparently doing a lot of sign linguistics research)
  • feeling stressed about not getting enough thesis research done and it’s already august!!!
  • getting hype to go to les mis followed by the beach in a few weeks!

thesis stuff

the sheer amount of times i will have watched or listened to a child say/sign “no” by the time i finish this thesis on children’s acquisition of negation is just…so much. so many times. so many times every day.

this week’s update

got some helpful advice on improving my resume. this week i WILL WORK ON MY PERSONAL STATEMENT!

also I went to newport folk festival and BOY where there a lot of white people there.

this week’s update

another week gone by, another week with no progress made on my application. but it’s okay, there’s still time. 

in other news, today i went to a roller derby bout for the first time and it was INCREDIBLE. i want to join a team.

Lately I’ve been spending a lot of time looking at apartments on Craigslist in cities I “have no plans to move to” but of course they’re all cities on my grad school list. It kind of stresses me out, but at the same time I can’t stop doing it. All I know is if I live in a one-person apartment in the future, I’m gonna clean the ever-loving LIFE out of it when I move in and it’s gonna be SO satisfying. 

This week’s update

Scholarship things are rolling along. I got some fairly helpful information about writing personal statements and felt pretty energized about doing it…but then didn’t start, so some of that energy is gone. But I think I know what i want to write about, at least for a first draft. If I make it beyond my school’s internal deadline, I’ll have time to revise it. I also have to answer a long list of internal questions for the committee that decides who from my school will get nominated. I also go back and forth between feeling excited and absolutely terrified at the prospect of being put up for this award. So, we’ll see.
