Those of you following my main blog already know this—but for those of you who’re just following this one (…are there any of you just following this one?):
I’ve been offered a place at GA Tech, and of course, of course I accepted — this was my first choice, so I am ridiculously, overwhelmingly excited.

Haha oh my gosh my evolution professor is so sweet and supportive and I just want to hug her??
So the running theme when people give me feedback on my statement of purpose for grad school is this:
*vague gesturing at summary of research* “I have no idea what any of this means. But I’m impressed!”
I hope the committees feel the same way. :|

Welp. I’ll be talking with Potential Advisor #1 via Skype next Wednesday morning. I AM SUPER EXCITED and only a little bit nervous. Mostly I want to flail at him about his project.

My (English) grad professor is making at least one crack a week at me about being a science major. Bring it, dude.
Now I have to write a proposal. I have been putting off this proposal FOR TOO LONG.
…I do kinda want to go to sleep, though.
But I told my PI I’d have this proposal to him by Fridaaaay. Ergh.
