So I almost feeling like I'm jinxing myself for sharing this, but I have to share it with someone so I'm choosing y'all because y'all aren't directly involved in my every day life, lol.
I just applied to grad school to become a school librarian, and I've also applied for a full-time position as a library assistant in the same city as the university I applied to. If I get this job, and I get accepted to grad school, I will be GOLDEN. I'll be able to afford to move out of my parents' house and be able to live and go to school and work right in the middle of the city, which is something I've always wanted. I feel like I didn't just apply for a job and grad school, I feel like I just applied to get my life together.
And while I'm excited... I'm terrified. What if I don't get accepted to either?? I know the only thing holding me back, at least for grad school, is my GRE test scores were about 10 points off from what I needed to get into the library science program, and I'm so paranoid that that'll keep me from getting into the program. I don't know how much they pay attention to things like that, but ya never know and it makes me nervous as ****. I've been so ready to move onto the next chapter of my life and I'm just so scared that SOMETHING is gonna prevent me from doing that.
But despite being terrified, I'm also extremely excited and I'm also trying really hard to not have my heart set on this. I'm already wanting to plan living arrangements and student life and I'm excited that if I get accepted, I'll be in the midst of college all over again with student activities and ways to get involved and I won't be lonely and bored anymore! I might even get the opportunity to meet a guy IN PERSON!
So please everyone, say your prayers and cross your fingers and toes and let's all hope and pray that I can finally be in an atmosphere that makes me truly happy!
