Grad School Interview, GRE Round 2, NSF Grant Proposal

Life Update - the Year without Grad School

I have been enjoying my year off and have started working on my grad school applications. I’ve been approaching potential advisers and I’m even looking into securing some funding for school. I’m going to take one last stab at the GRE (roooooooound 2). I needed this break and I’ll definitely be ready to go back next year.

Teaching, by the way, is still one of my favorite things to do. Right now I’m teaching sophomore chemistry and junior/senior physics. 

I can’t waiiiiiiiiit

Moving to a new place for work can be a pretty lonely experience. Especially of all of your family is too far away for a weekend visit. Even though I’m in a classroom/lunch room full of people at work, strangely, I still feel alone.

I have some stronger connections with my coworkers this year, so we will have to see how that goes. I’m grateful for suffering/going through this now…so when I go to grad school someplace new, I’ll know how to adapt to it a little better.

Here is a big, goobery smile for the science side of tumblr. Thanks for letting me vent my brain noodles. Thanks to you, today I got to bum around in a cozy sweatshirt…AND get a significant amount of my manuscript done. Here’s to a night of actual relaxation.
