The Waiting Game...

So when I applied for the College Program last year I only waited eleven days after my interview to find out I was accepted. Just eleven days. I was very lucky, and I'm realizing that even more right now. Haha.

Right now I'm waiting to hear back about the PI's. May 1st is fast approaching and I'm starting to get nervous. I'm not getting my hopes up, and I'm applying for everything that I can find that I'm qualified for. I have 18 days until graduation and I really want to have a job soon after that. I want to start earning and saving money pretty immediately after I graduate.

Also I talked to some of my CP friends and old roomies and we've decided we're going to try and start a reunion tradition. We're aiming to meet up around late October/Early November for Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween Party, and in order to do this I need money. Which means I need a job. So I'm going through an application frenzy amidst trying to finish my assignments for my classes and start preparing for final exams (and then on top of all of that is actual graduation cermony plans).

I'm crazy busy and I feel like I just might lose my mind. Haha. But I'm buckling down and staying on top of things. I actually don't have a lot left to do this time around. I've been working hard this year to not procrastinate and stay organized, and that's really starting to pay off for me. So while I have overwhelming moments, generally I'm not extremely overloaded.

Also they got our cap and gowns in at the University bookstore today. I'm picking mine up tomorrow once my money transfers so I can pay for it. It's really starting to hit me that this is the end of my college career. I'm about to enter real life and I barely feel prepared.

I just have to have faith that it will all work out, and I'll find something absolutely perfect for me. Or at least find a way to truly strike out on my own. :D

As for when I'll hear back about the PI's...I was told May 1st, but I was browsing Kristin's old blog (A Journey into My Imagination) and she was told the same thing but didn't hear back until May 11th. So, really, anything is possible. More than likely I won't know anything until exams start or possibly even until after I've already graduated. I'm just taking it day by day and trying very hard not to put all my eggs in one basket. I'm still worried that it's a bad sign that I haven't been contacted for a follow up or second interview at all. Some positions don't do second interviews, but some do. So I'm a little worried about that. But we'll see.

Keep crossing your fingers for me! I'm hoping for the best (while still keeping my eyes peeled for other opportunities).

That's all for today, folks! I'll keep you posted!
