Let Me Look Into My Crystal Ball

NYU logo I submitted my NYU Steinhardt application today! This makes it 3 graduate schools down, 1 more to go. Wouldn't it be amazing to live in New York City for a couple of years? Imagine the scene. Imagine the learning. Imagine the experience.

Imagine the cost of living.

All these applications make me excited--that is a nervous, scared, silly, happy, sad, anxious, elated, tentative, ready for it, roller coaster kind of excited.

Being completely unsure of the future is an interesting place to be in. I am graduating from college in a matter of months. Who knows what I'll be doing next year at this time or where that unknown will be? I am at that point in my life when it really counts, when my entire future is really decided, when I am not really in control of my own destiny. This moment, this chunk of time, is both wildly freeing and decidedly enervating.

Where will I end up?


  1. I understand what you are going through with applying. Granted, I have already applied to all my schools. Maybe one more.

  2. one more? that's good. But I think you are giving up hope too soon, too soon.

  3. that was emily walker, not emily cisney. emily cisney gave up hope about two months ago, ha

  4. Oh gosh. Too many emilys. Love you both though ♥ Hope and good stuff for the future all around.
