I’m really lonely right now. Not in general – just this instant, this afternoon. I’m sure it’s a stuck-in-the-spider-hole sort of funk, and that it will lift tonight when the kids come for Meat Night – but right now I’m feeling pretty blah. I’m trying not to whinge too much about my emotional state here, but sometimes it’s the only way I know to express myself. *sigh*
On the bright side, I had a really good meeting with an assistant dean from the GSLIS program. It turns out he is a fellow graduate of Rockford College, so that can’t hurt my application any. He told me a lot about the program, answered most of my questions, and made me feel more certain about my (lack of) academic direction. Now I just have to come up with a knock-your-socks-off application.
Unfortunately, though, I won’t be able to take classes in the fall. That’s probably OK because I couldn’t really afford the tuition money – but it’s still disappointing. My supervisor cited phone coverage and fairness to my coworkers who are conscientious to schedule course work outside working hours as her reasons for declining my request for schedule flexibility. I understand – but seriously, whatever.
