Lazy weekend, rough week, another “with committee”…

I didn’t make nearly as much progress with the Chicago essays this weekend as I would have liked to… Heck, I didn’t make any progress at all… I just couldn’t get my creative juices flowing… I guess part of it is because this was the first weekend in a long time where I didn’t have an immediate deadline looming over my head, so I could afford to kick back a bit… Mostly I think I just work better under pressure – no pressure, no productivity…

There’s been a heck of a lot going on in my life lately… I think I’m about to lose my mind trying to manage it all… Bhairavi says she’s surprised I’m holding up – I guess this goes back to that working well under pressure thing… I have stress from my incomplete Chicago application (which I’m trying to get done by June 15th), stress from planning a Put-in-Bay trip that a bunch of our college friends are hoping to take during the last week of June, stress from planning our trip to Europe in July (by the way, planning vacations and make reservations is probably more stress than the relaxation is worth!), stress from other issues my family is caught up in (which I’d rather not share with the entire internet community), stress from work (well, my stress is caused by my software application not being able to handle load), and a whole bunch of other “stress” in general… Hey, it feels good to vent!

Anyway, I’ll cut the rambling… This week is the week I should be hearing back from Carnegie Mellon… I checked my status yesterday morning and it still said my application was incomplete (waiting on a interview that I had given on May 27th). I then checked later in the afternoon (yes, it’s part of my status-checking ritual), and it said my application is complete and under review by the admissions committee… Carnegie Mellon says that they’ll mail the decisions as soon as they are made, and no later than June 14… So, I’m thinking that this week is the week for CMU!! Hopefully I’ll also hear from NYU this week, if not, maybe next…

The goal for this week: get something done with the Chicago essays! I’ll keep you all posted and let you know how that goes…:)
