Graduate Program? Work? Be a Bum? Oh the Choices...

Okay guys, I guess Grandma has to have surgery for her gall bladder after all. I thought she was okay, but I don't think it's anything major. I mean surgery is an important thing, but it's a good thing she went to the doctor so they could catch it. I had to email the head of grad studies at school today to say I don't think I'm going into the English program but might do creative writing, which involves applying to another school, and either way, I think I'm going to take some time off from school to work before going back. I'm just about burned out on school already--definitely going to need a break. I hated to break the news to the guy, because I think he was really wanting me to join the program, but like my mom says, I should go into something I want to do and something I enjoy.

But enough of that. I spent a significant portion of the evening shelling out pecans again. I am thankful that we have so many though. Very good crop this year. We went to see Brandy's grandparents for an hour or so. Gave them some pecans too. I feel like I've been eating, breathing, and utterly LIVING pecans for the past few days. Tomorrow is a long day, and I'm getting worn out just thinking about it. Then Thursday I have a wonderful Sigma Tau Delta meeting, and Friday I will probably have to work. Well, I can't think of anything else to say because my brain is melting! melting! and I need to get to bed soon. Later.

Hey, I hope your grandma does well with the surgery. I know it can be scary, no worries. And I too have been thinking about taking a break after that wonderful day coming in December when we walk across the stage to commemorate the toils we've endured and get the greatest prize of all.....a piece of paper...like we haven't seen enough of those by the time we get there. I think all graduates should get a diploma and some cash as they cross the stage. That would make it so much more rewarding.
