I am currently sitting in the Pittsburgh airport waiting for my flight to Atlanta. I have to admit I was jealous of everyone packing their bags on Friday for the Bahamas, Florida, or home. I was glad when my boyfriend and I planned a last-minute visit, and glad to get out of the snowy weather! (It’s supposed to be in the 50’s this week in Atlanta!)
If you’ve read my earlier posts, you’ll know that I have been (im)patiently waiting for an admissions decisions from the grad schools I applied to, or a response from some jobs that I applied for. I finally heard something back on Friday, and it was good news! I got accepted to the Masters of Arts in Teaching program at Emory University! I was so relieved to hear back from somewhere so I know that I have at least an option for next year. I was also really excited about getting admitted to this particular program. It is a one-year program, starting soon after I graduate from Duquesne in May. It is also a small program, with 20-30 people in it each year. I have been reading everything I can find about the school and program online since hearing of my acceptance, and get more excited the more I read!
I plan to wait to make my decision about next year until I hear back from the other two graduate programs, but I am excited about the next step, whatever it ends up being!
On a sad note, I caught the final goal of the US vs. Canada hockey game as I arrived at the Pittsburgh airport. At least we earned silver…?
Happy spring break, Duquesne.
