OH, and the biggest news is that ALL of my applications for grad school are DONE!  I got a call from one of the admissions offices this morning saying they hadn't gotten my printed copy of my writing sample.  The upshot of the conversation was that I needed to overnight it to them, and so I finished up the last two statments of purposes and into the mail all three went! 

One thing that's really annoyed me about this whole process is the amount of paper I've had to send out.  If I submit a writing sample online, I should not then have to resubmit it in hard copy.  And it's doubly annoying that some programs have a "Graduate School" that you apply to, but then that place doesn't seem to share information with the *acutal* program (thus I have to send copies to the program as well).  Why on earth have an online application if you're going to make me mail it in too?  How is that saving anyone time and money since they've got to store the hard copies and the virtual copies somewhere right?

Now that I've got all that out, I'm proceeding with the rest of my friday night quite pleasantly.  Happy evening to you all!
