My graduate school application has been submitted; all that I can do now is cross my fingers and hope that I am accepted. I wish I was feeling confident, but the truth is I am really quite nervous. For years I have been considering graduate school. I can’t become a librarian without first earning my Master’s in Library & Information Science. This is something that I really want. Knowing there is a chance that it won’t happen is terrifying. I think it stems from being a perfectionist and compulsive worrier, but I really don’t handle failure well. I think my fear of failing is one of the reasons I hadn’t applied sooner.

Taking a deep breath and trying to move this out of my mind. I don’t expect to hear back for another 6-8 weeks. Fortunately I leave tomorrow for a week in California which should at least keep me distracted for a bit.
I am most looking forward to just being with my sister and my niece. My sister is my best friend and it really sucks that we only get to see each other a couple times a year. Even though we have different goals with running, it has brought us so much closer together. Running a half marathon together last year was so much fun. I’m bummed that we won’t be running together this weekend, but I am excited to cheer her on while she runs her 3rd half marathon! Also not running means I get to sleep in and hang out with my favorite 4 year old all morning, so I’m definitely not complaining.
Oh and a week without snow won’t be too bad either!
I won’t be blogging while on vacation, but feel free to follow me on Instagram if we aren’t already Instafriends. If not, I’ll see you again on January 25th.
