Priorities, realizations and commitments

Priorities

It's not even may and I'm apprehensive as hell. Why is it that the stress level goes up the closer I get to an important date or event? I'm not even close to the damn date and I'm already starting to stress out about the application. I know that once I complete the letter, transcripts and GRE is not going to be under my control. I did the best I can and now it's in other people's hands which is something I most definitely hate. On the other hand, the GRE is my responsibility and something that I need to work hard at

Realizations

"El tiempo pasa, nos vamos poniendo viejos"

I connected with  the children of two of my professors at central. The oldest already graduated from college, the youngest is starting college this fall. I'm just like holly cow! I didn't think that so much time had passed since I last saw them.

When you give feedback

If you feel like you have to give negative feedback at least pretend that the person you're criticizing did something, however small, well.
