I think I may have bitten off more than I could chew when it came to the 1% Well-Read Challenge. I got both Never Let Me Go, and Intimacy, and I couldn’t get through either of them. It makes me very nervous for some of the other books on the list. There are ten books on the list that I have read and I did enjoy, but I’m not cheating my way through the challenge: that’s just not fair. I’m also wondering if I should give up the challenge. I could switch over to a book list of reading all of Les Roberts books on Cleveland. (I read The Irish Sports Pages and loved it.)
There is an idea, a theory, among the studies of the occult, that if you call a demon by its name, you give it power. I have made the mistake of naming my demon….
I’ve started the process of applying to graduate school…again. This time, I’m not lowering the bar, necessarily, but I’m definitely going for a goal that is a lot more attainable. Not that it was silly to apply for a place at OSU in their program, but I didn’t have nearly enough (read: any) experience under my belt in the public administration or the arts field. At least with getting my MBA, I have a background with my bachelor’s degree, and some experience in the field.
And this time, I’m a lot more mature, more brave, and more driven. I’m going to study for and do well on the GMAT. I’m going to make and set deadlines for the application process. I will get in.
I’m really excited. It’s been a long time.
