My blogging is going to be sporadic for the next month. I’m not sure what that means yet–I hope to write at least weekly. I’m applying to a graduate program and the application process needs my attention for the time being. The job I spoke of a few blogs ago is at a university–making graduate school an affordable option for me. If I get in, of course I’m hopeful, then I will share details on the school and the program. Again, I don’t want to jinx anything. I really don’t mean to be superstitious, but sometimes I can’t help it.
