May Contain Blueberries

the sometimes journal of Jeremy Beker

I’ve been in academic limbo for the last year and a half. I have been taking graduate CS courses, but I was not actually in the graduate program. That had been the plan, but I needed to take the GREs first. Initially I had wanted to take time to study and prepare before taking the GREs. Monday I realized that that was never going to happen.

So I have taken the plunge. I am scheduled to take the GREs on May 11th. That would be the day after my final exam for Software Engineering; I might as well get all the pain over with quickly. I have my application to grad school in my bag as I type this and will be dropping it off today (once I figure out where it needs to go). Last night was spent honing my answers to the fluffy questions that schools seem to want to know about. I even found 3 suckers kind individuals to write me recommendations.

A part of me is really wondering: “What the hell am I thinking?” I guess we shall see.
