I finally started getting mail from the graduate schools I applied to late last week - unfortunately they're all rejections. So I won't be going to Yale, Brown, Rice, or U. of Virginia. Still no word from Harvard or U. of Chicago, but I'm obviously less than optimistic at this point - although stranger things have happened.
Also, moving forward at Starbucks isn't (ever) going to happen - something else I found last week, though it's what I expected. So the future is starting to look seriously uncertain. On the plus side, we might not have to move, which would be nice, because I hate moving.
Anyway. Maybe I'll have better news to post later in the week.
