Thanks Jeanne! We're both looking forward to it. I did hear back from graduate school. I was accepted to Boston University & University of Westminster in SLC and I wasn't accepted to Washington State University. They cited that they received an overwhelming number of qualified applicants and try again next year. Boston University and University of Westminster didn't offer me any type of research assistantship or teaching assistantship so it would be all student loans and at the out of state rates that's really expensive so I can't afford it. I could afford one year but not the full curriculum and I can't justify spending that type of money. The government has really cut a lot of funding to education and we're seeing the schools whittled to the bones. I could have afforded the out of state rates at Washington State University because they have a waiver for Idaho students. I could go but I have to send in my acceptance letter to study there and I think I'm going to wait another year. I realized later that I really want to study Middle East and Islamic Studies and that isn't at any of the Universities I've applied to. I'm still making up my mind and my mind tells me take a year or two break between school right now. Do more research into Graduate Schools and make some money. This isn't like starting a new chapter this is like starting a whole new book. I've got a Husband coming and need to take it easy. My family is in a tail spin because they expected me to go off to graduate school again and not stick around here and they're all pressuring me about finding a job everyday. Currently I'm looking for work. I've put in 44 applications since Dec. and only received 1 call back so far. I've revamped my resume about 10 times. This economy is grueling for the unemployed and newly graduated. People say that they get 200 applications for one job and have to sort it all out. Other people tell me I have to know someone to get an in on a job right now. Layoffs are still happening here and not many jobs are being created. I'm registered with the Department of Labor and other work sources. Everyday I'm applying for jobs. Everything is corporate and online now. It's not meeting face to face anymore. If I got to apply for a job they want me to do it online and it takes 4 hours. I have to register for their website and keep track of user ID's and passwords. They want cover letters so you'll stand out and you have to write one for each job you're applying to. Then there is no confirmation if they get all your information. It's super invasive the things they ask such as a list of places you've lived for the last seven years. Why do they need that? It really gets exhausting. Applying for graduate school is a lot like applying for a job these days.

Times have changed so much for everything Olivia. Jobs are very non personal anymore. Whatever happened to "interviews"!!

I am always for change when it can help, but anymore things have become so complicated and overwhelming. One has to have

a PhD just to push the freakin' buttons on the phone when you need to call someone!! Don't let it get you down sweetie. Everything

takes time and there's always reasons for our decisions or decisions that are made for us.

I've learned to take one day at a time...enjoy that day...thank God for what I have...and things always fall into place. Sure beats

worrying and stressing over things we have absolutely no control over. Just take your time and enjoy your husband. You have waited

a long time. At least you will have him to help you thru and help in many of the decision makings.

Yes, Tucson can be a very interesting place to live. We live at the foothills of one of the 4 mountain ranges here. Many areas are still

underdeveloped which makes it feel like your own nature reserve! We get to experience all kinds of animals and birds....just simply beautiful.

Take care hon. You will be just fine.

blush.gif Thanks hon! Not much has gone as planned for us so far. I agree there is a timing for everything and I really believe with what has happened that this time right now is supposed to be for us together and that is what's best. I've read stories about the first year here adjusting to each other and I guess we're going to see. On to the next adventure! tongue.gif Where you live does sound really lovely.
