Things are beginning to settle in a little bit.

While driving to Latin yesterday, I came to the realization that me deciding not to apply to ph.d programs now was one of the best things I did all year. If I had put lots of work (not to mention $$$$) into applications only to be unable to attend another school in the Fall, I would be….upset.

Therefore my feeling that all things happen for a reason is renewed – I don’t have to like it all, but I think I’ve ceased to worry about it so much.
