For over a year I didn't even want to think about grad school. I had the mentality that I could not handle the rejections again. I literally was sick for about 4 months solid because of the stress of trying to answer the "What now?" question, and I did not want to get my hopes up again just to get them
After that, I made up my mind that I was going to accept my life the way it was and move on. I wasn't going to dwell on what I didn't accomplish and instead set out to achieve new goals. Have I achieved them yet? No. But I haven't given up. I have gotten a new GRE study guide (bleh), and hopefully will take the test later this summer. I want to at least get that done and figure out the next step later.
Well, that is the update on my life. I figured I needed to explain why the absence. One of my resolutions is to start blogging again and I'm going to try really hard to be better at it.
