I applied to grad school this year. I submitted my documents to five different universities and got into all of them. Now that I got in, I’m asking myself: Now what? Do I still want this as much as I used to?
My 2 cents about the benefits of writing.
This week I received a notification from one of the grad schools I'd applied to this fall. I got in!
It's been a while since I posted anything here – not because I don't have anything to say (trust me, my blog backlog is full of posts), but mostly because of the current prioritization of my projects.
I took these notes about a year ago. They may look like gibberish to some of you, but they mean so much to me. Almost exactly a year ago on…
When I used to tell people about my dream of studying in the U.S., most people thought I was crazy. How does a kid from Moldova get into college in the States? Mind you, I had no rich parents who could hand me the money to study. So if I wanted to study there, I had to have a full ride.
It has always been a dream of mine to live in the United States. And by “dream,” I mean it was something I never thought would come true. Pretty pessimistic, right? But my pessimism was grounded in reality: it was nearly impossible to (legally) leave my home country and immigrate to the U.S. There are many reasons for that, and I won’t go into the specifics here. But what’s important is I knew the life I wanted to have was very difficult to achieve by living in my home country.
