I got into IU's Master of Public Policy program! It is one of the best in the nation and I didn't figure there was even a chance of me getting in. My boss ripped me a new one when she heard I hadn't applied and made me and I got in. I can't believe it. Like I found out a few hours ago and I am still freaking out. This is perfect. I will be in an excellent program with an amazing faculty, i can focus on gender policy, near gender non-profits, and be near my family, friends, and Bryce.

Wow...I really am going to be leaving DC.

I love living in DC. I love every conversation being about the election. I love the sense of excitement that has been everywhere in the past 48 hours...this is why I live here :)

I truly do not like supreme court cases. I would totally become a lawyer, if I didn't have to read casework. I guess it is a good thing I am not becoming a lawyer.

In other news midterms are pretty much over. But I really need to sleep. I think I have forgotten how.

So the first day of classes was boring. I felt off the whole day. I woke up this morning having slept only a couple hours off and on throughout the night. Then I got up, showered, and hated every article of clothing I own. I was off.

Then came Bio which lasted 20 minutes and I still managed to fall asleep while he was talking. I went and talked to my advisor and made sure I was clear to graduate. Then did banking, talked with sisters, lunch with Claire and then Greatness in music which is only a slightly odd class.

Then I came home and slept for ever and watched 3 Ninjas and Robin Hood:Men in Tights. Classic. now I'm sitting here watching the DNC and trying to figure out what to put on the delt welcome back posters.

I still feel blah.

So I'm kinda pumped about school this year. I never get excited for school, but I'm ready. Ready for the class work and the drama. It just feels good to be back. I had an amazing summer and I'm missing everyone so so so bad, but I'm ready to finish stuff up out here and head to wherever my life will lead.

I don't have much to update on. I'm obviously back in DC. Saying goodbye to Indiana was hard this time. I had just gotten to see Cyndel and Rachel again. I wanted to see Tricia and Chris's new places. My parents are always hard to leave. I loved my jobs and the ppl I worked with. And of course it was hard to say goodbye to Bryce. We now have promise rings and it is the best decision I have ever made. We are too young to plan much else but I like wearing his ring. It makes the distance a little more bearable (sp?). Nothing material is needed to make the distance do-able but the little token does help when IN and DC seem light years away.

Plus it really is exciting to be in DC during the presidential race. The whole city is buzzing. My new housemates are getting along great and the girls are great to hang out with even without the sorority existing. Its kinda fun explaining to freshman that we got in trouble for hazing. (Trying to look on the bright side of things)

well classes start tomorrow so maybe I should think about sleep.

I feel like my life is a dream. everything seems right right now. This weekend was amazing. It was all I could ever ask for. The lodge was perfect, the weather was beautiful, the company was all I needed to feel completely at peace. And since this weekend things have continued to be magical. Every thing is just making me fall more and more in love. It can't last. This feeling of absolute bliss...but god i hope it does.

In other news...Easton is visiting me this weekend. He arrives tonight and is going to tag along to my dad's big birthday celebration and then go down to Bryce's for the fireworks. He leaves Sunday morning I think?

I don't want to go back to DC. I miss ppl but nothing else. Sigh.

Maybe if I stop getting excited about things then I will stop getting disappointed. Its strange...only the ones you love can really disappoint you. But their disappointment cuts so deep and hurts so much. And here I am disappointed. I was telling Nick about this the other day. Sometimes you have done all you can for a person and yet every thing you get in return is disappointment and heartbreak. But today's disappointment tops all the disappointments I have had in the past year. Whether from friends or family or life. I will never again say, "please, it is really important to me." I said it too many times in the past and am still waiting for that moment that impresses me. There is no reason I should be disappointed by yet another person on something so very similar. I hate it when parents get in the way. My parents trust me and let me go and do as i want, why cant other people's. I mean they're good kids its time parents gave a little trust.

Ugggggg I know this makes no sense to anyone reading it but I just needed to vent.

While I am glad to hear LeeAnn's surgery went well, I was not so fortunate. My surgery lasted over 4 hours. I was awake the whole time and they said it was a good thing I was cause otherwise they would have broken my jaw. My jaw hyper-extends so its now a huge mess from the strain while it was extended. My entire face is bruised from the surgery. i was swollen, but it has actually gone done to its normal size again. But the whole left side of my face is yellow and blue from the surgery. And I will probably have a couple scars by my mouth from the unhinging my jaw. And on top of it all, it was starting to get infected so now I'm on all sorts of pills.

In other news, I actually feel great and have been really productive around the house. I'm just sick of not being able to go to work and see people.

uggggg...well Chase now its your turn. good luck with your teeth

As is the latest trend...I am getting my wisdom teeth pulled in the morning. They don't hurt and I can't see them thus I don't think they exist but my dentist tells me otherwise.

In other news I am completely exhausted from work this week. And am 100% anti-social. Sorry too tired to socialize.
