So. There’s been a bit of radio silence on this little blog of mine. There will likely continue to be, too. Reason being…
I am seriously considering applying to graduate school. It almost makes my heart stop, thinking about all that the process entails. For one thing, I have a major exam to take (the advanced Psychology GRE) — and that’s coming up in a little over a month. I also need to consider about a dozen different factors when it comes to identifying potential clinical psychology programs. After that, I have to get all my ducks in a row: transcripts, personal statements, recommendations. It’s enormously overwhelming… and all of this before December. God, or whatever greater powers that be, help me.
Before a panic attack sets in, though, let’s reflect on some positive things. Jay and I went to Seattle — and what a trip that was. We hiked to waterfalls, went wild at a chocolate factory, toured charming neighborhoods, bar-hopped the nights away, and, of course, ate like there was no tomorrow. It was absolutely indulgent, and I can’t wait to share all that goodness with you soon.
Unfortunately, however, all good things must come to an end. We had to return to real life. It hurt. The transition was made less painful by a batch of The Ambitious Kitchen’s cookies I whipped up last night. These peanut-butter-y, oat-y, chocolate-y drops were the perfect treat — still sinfully sweet, but on the healthier side, as they contained no flour, butter, or oil. They were just the thing to ease me back into everyday life.
