I’ve been working on my personal statement more vigorously since class left out. Because I’m going to Vegas and will be without steady internet (not to mention relaxing), I had to up the deadline for myself from 15 Dec. to 12 Dec. I know 3 days doesn’t sound like a lot, but you never know.

I’m not normally a work in public kind of gal, but for this, I learned that I work better at a cafe than at home. I think it has something to do with the weather. It’s cold here (right now we are about 10 degrees above 0 F), and when this


is your view, you tend to go for the cozy and cheerful. There’s something about working the cafe that makes me more productive, even though there are plenty of people to watch.

The game plan for today is to get everything written so that I can sit on it, forget it, and edit it on Monday. Hope for the best for me, please?
