(And yes, it has been pointed out that this sounds like a made-up degree. It’s not! It just sounds too bada** to be true).
Even though it was a hard decision and I still have my doubts (if there is a question to be had, I’ll be asking it!) I think it’s mostly going to be AH. MAZING.
The whole applying-process has been very different this year than last year. For example, I actually had people who wanted to write my recommendations–and who didn’t flake out, also an important quality–and I had several programs that offered me admission, instead of just one program that I only applied to because they had a small application fee.
This year, I got it. Even though I wasn’t entirely sure what I wanted to study, and again, I’m the original questioner, but getting in felt like a sign.
And really, I’m sure I’ll have several other careers in my lifetime. I want to have several other careers. I think I need to, to have the kind of life I’ve always wanted.
And, when I write my memoir in 80 years (might as well be optimistic, right?) I want it to be crazy interesting.
I think this degree is a good continuation of Amy’s life story so far.
Wish me luck!
(P.S. It was a really difficult decision that I agonized over for weeks. I chose the program that wasn’t offering me as much aid, and that requires I take several pre-requisites–which are HARD so far–but in typical Amy fashion, I just can’t take the easy way. That’s boring).
