My committee letter application for my post-bacc institution is due this Friday at 5:00 PM. I was chatting with a buddy of mine earlier tonight and told him how much work I still had left to do on my application and he mentioned how he hated deadlines. I started to realize that, among the many things I have to look forward to, meeting deadlines is going to characterize the next ten years of my life. There are deadlines for application. Deadlines for secondaries. Deadlines for deciding on where to go if I’m accepted. Deadlines for everything in graduate school, I’m sure. Deadlines. Deadlines. Deadlines.
I’m glad I see this now and have started learning how to be organized, otherwise I’ll be going insane a few years from now.
