After a summer of last minute applications and barely studying for the GRE, I finally got into the geography master’s program at my alma mater! I’ll also be working as a teaching assistant for a class I never took. I’m excited and terrified at the same time.
I’d always considered going to graduate school, but my first plan had been to take a semester off and then go back to school. But thanks to the insistence of the graduate advisor, among others (and the knowledge that getting a paying TA job would be better in the fall), I decided to go straight in. Even though I’m not exactly sure what I want to study yet. Yeah, I’ve got a lot of work ahead of me.
