For some reason, I can't find my blog-updating addon for Firefox. Woe. It was much more convenient. Alas.

So, in conclusion, I didn't get into any grad schools. Considering how strongly I felt that I was supposed to go, I had some pretty serious confusion there. I don't know that I'm going to apply again, at least not to the regular programs. At some point, I might consider one of the low-residency programs, though they're a lot more expensive and not so good with the helping you find ways to cover it. I don't know if I'll get enough out of it to justify it, but I suppose it's worth a shot and I can always quit if it doesn't work. (Assuming I can get in to one of THOSE programs!)

Alternately, I am semi-seriously considering relocating to a different area. I found a similar-enough job in Kentucky where I'd make $10k less but have $14k more in expendable income because of the difference in the cost of living. I wasn't quite ready to apply for it when it came up, though. Not sure if that's where I'll end up, but ... I'll keep looking.

I may still not move, though. I'm having a blast and a ton with the gaming group, and the thought of leaving that behind is not so happiness.

Okay, the migraine is returning, so I'm going to go lay down. Stupid migraines.

I know the feeling of having the strong sense that I'm supposed to do something, and then not having it turn out. Not sure what to say--I hope it's that I needed that particular experience of failure for some reason (though I can't help worrying that I'm not listening correctly).

I hope things work out for you, one way or another.
