patchwork post from a long absence

*first of all, i just wanted to say that i'm a little sad that oranges are on their way out of season (actually, they're probably already out). out-of-season oranges just aren't the same. sad day.

*news: i'm 26 now. that happened on february 20th. i don't know that there's anything exciting about being 26, except that i'm closer in age to a fifty-year-old person than i am to a newborn infant. oh, and 26 is the age of being kicked off my parents' health insurance, yippee!

*a couple of weeks ago, i found out that i got into the creative writing master's program at byu. i am THRILLED about this, though slightly overwhelmed and a little stressed. i was so grateful to get in, especially because this was the only school i applied to. (talk about putting all my eggs in one basket!) i probably should have applied to more than one, but it worked out okay, right? right. along with getting into grad school, i am applying to teach a freshman-level writing class at byu, which is something i was told that most grad students in the english program do. that would be quite the adventure! i think it's something i would enjoy, once i got over the nerves. i was going to blog about the good news right away, buuuuuuut....

*i got sick, so i was miserably attached to a kleenex box for a few days, and i didn't feel like updating my blog. after a few days of being miserable, i started to send positive affirmations to my immune system cells, and i even visualized my immune cells kicking the virus' butt. it must have worked, because i'm just fine and dandy now.

*yeah, i think that's it.

I'm so happy that you got in! And, you're going to be an awesome teacher, too. Seriously, teaching is one of my favorite parts of the grad school experience.
