Little Update

I have a little bit of time, so I just wanted to stop in and say hi.


Anyway, I am currently working on a one-page proposal to use as my letter of introduction to two people I would like to have on my committee. I'm not sure what I need to say, and my notes are semi-illegible, so as long as I submit something today, I should be in good shape.

As for everything else, I'm in a bind because I have reached my limit on student loans from the government, so from here on out I am going to have to apply for as many grants as possible (and I may have to pick up another job) in order to pay for the rest of my PhD. It was not a complete surprise because I knew that there was a limit,but I had the wrong amount in mind as to when that limit would be reached. If I were in the health professions track, I could access a total of $225,000. Unfortunately for me, the standard graduate school track has a total of $138,000. I would have had two years of funding left if I had never gone to library school, but since that degree is going to help me in getting work in the future, I would not trade it for anything.

I'll not get into the current family drama (mostly because I'd rather not think about it), but I will say that it wouldn't be a typical day in my life if there weren't some bs going on. I will say that my dad is being a dick in the situation, so he should not be surprised as to why I try not to talk to him

I hope things are going well for everyone else out there. I can't blog the way I used to, but I hope that I will be able to do some entries that deal with my PhD work in some way. And I keep promising pictures of my little girl and I will post them as soon as I can find the disk that they are on.

Take care out there.
