I'm not entirely sure how much longer I'll have internet, so I'm going to blog now. My apartment is half packed -- Matt and I are loading my van full of stuff to take to his place...amazing how much fits in there! We just got my love seat and a wingback chair in at the same time. It's been a long job. Matt's back is all screwed up, so most heavy lifting that can't be carefully balanced is up to me -- sheer adrenaline people....anyway. I'm tired. I've taken a break and eaten, but now I'm back to doing something productive. Surely -- there must be something one can do when half asleep!
The Decision

Alright, some of you have been asking what the decision was. Here it goes. I found out a week ago that I was not given an assistanceship to go to grad school. To make a long story short, that means that I would have to pay for graduate school out of pocket, instead of being free. Anyway. After a week of thinking, and praying, and weighing my options, I have decided not to go to grad school this coming year. I'm going to go work in California at least until Christmas. I can try to get an assistanceship through another department for the spring, or at the least I can return in the fall when I'll probably have an assistanceship through the music school -- lots of them will be up by then. So, I'm moving to California....and I hate moving! It will be good for me...but its been a stressful week...
