I am happy. Which if you know me is not unusual, but considering that I haven’t heard anything from the PhD department at UT about my pending application it is somewhat surprising. I will wait patiently, and enjoy this calm optimism in which I seem to be enveloped.
I am also still applying for jobs, if I am not accepted into the PhD program I will have to fill my days with something other than the endless reading and researching that I have been enjoying since I graduated. I have interviewed for one that seems promising, and a few others that I feel I would be a very good fit for. Now I feel I am in a holding pattern, waiting to hear any sort of news, but even with the waiting I am pretty happy.
