After a couple of years of feeling like I was floundering around, I finally realized what it is I want to do in this next period in my life and it gave me a great impetus to actually begin accomplishing things. (not that I wasn't accomplishing things before, I finished a rough draft of a novel and grew in many ways, but I FELT like I wasn't accomplishing anything. Anyhoo)
So I took the GRE and applied to grad school and prepared my application for the teaching assistantship I wanted to pursue. It's been an exciting, nerve-wracking road, but today it bore its first fruit....
I received an e-mail letting me know that I had indeed been accepted into the MA in English program at Seton Hall University for the fall semester and letting me know I was eligible for the teaching assistantship (though I still have to go through the interview process and see if I actually get it).
Man, I am shaking. It's exciting and terrifying and suddenly so ridiculously REAL.
I think I'm gonna go find myself some oxygen.
