Making Progress

I have now officially started all of my applications and narrowed it down to 4 programs at 3 schools!  One of my recommenders is leaving for Europe on June 26 so I was sure to start early so he wouldn't be doing it last minute, and I figured I might as well just do them while I have them open.  I have a few more essays to write, a couple personal statements, an essay I need to hack in half, but I think I'm getting somewhere here.

I gave my personal expression essay to a friend to look over and I am apprehensive that my point isn't coming across.  I wrote it like a short story, sort of a series of little tiny vignettes, to try and show who I am and what I am about, but I made it very informal because that's much more personal to me.  Writing in a super formal style just wouldn't feel like "personal expression".  My friend kind of missed the point, so I am nervous that to people who don't know me these little vignettes don't come together to give the right message.

Maybe I should just make a damn video.

Today after work I am going down to the shore for a girl's night but not staying the whole weekend as that was a struggle last time.  I want some time in my house to work on my essays and such, and I think it will be good to have a little more alone time this weekend too.

My flame retardant jumpsuit came and it smells like a can of tuna.  No joke.  I'll post pics when I'm done washing it and don't want to gag at the smell.

It was super bright this morning.

I took this picture of the giant poster in our office demo room.  Check out that guy's tie!! And the computer screen.  Yeesh.

I think it's time for a new poster, huh.  We're a technology company, after all.
