Today on my walk to work, it was 0 degrees and felt like negative 18 degrees.

I think California sounds better and better. Why do I live in this arctic hellhole?

I’m way tired.

I’m more impressed that I actually spelled that word correctly on the first try than the rest of this blog. This weekend has come to a less-than spectacular close. It’s eleven-eleven, and I’ve been noticing this time more and more. It seems I’m always looking at the clock when it’s this time. Perhaps this just means I look too much at at time. My world is extremely reliant on time. I am scheduled for most of my day, if not by other people, then in my own mind. What would happen if I just tried to stop scheduling myself and just go places when I feel it’s time. Would I sleep better? Would I be happier? Would I ever be at the right place at the right time? I think all the answers would be no…haha, at least at first. I would be too paranoid about time to let myself not think about it. Perhaps after a few weeks I could get used to it. Will I ever write anything interesting?

New paragraph. I’m working on my senior paper. I’d like to go to grad school somewhere. I have a few options and I’m trying to figure them out as I type this.

Option A:
U of Minnesota
American Studies PhD
Dance Studies Certificate
GLBT Grad Minor

UCLA
World Arts and Cultures: Culture and Performance PhD

UC Riverside
Dance History and Theory PhD

NYU
PhD in Performance Sudies

I will be making Pros and Cons lists of all these. I won’t be applying until next year, when I’ll have time and when I can take the GRE and prepare adequately for it. The perks to the U of M is that I’d get to work with Ananya, but each other place has other amazing faculty who I could also work with. It’s just so much to think about at this time. What think you?

I want opinions…I also want to be able to dance, and U of M and NYU have the best options for finding a company to dance in while I’m in school. So many choices. California would be right next to my friend Kally, who I have not seen in quite some time.

Feedback please!
