Yes, I am seeking attention, but for happy things!

I just recently found out that I got into the Master of Arts art history program at Queen's University in Kingston, which was my second choice of grad school, and they are going to give me funding! Not a super lot, but enough that it will cover my tuition.

They only accept 8 people per year, and this year over 30 people applied, so I get to feel a little bit special. The director of the department there is one of the best Medievalists in Canada, so that's pretty exciting.

So now I get to move to Kingston, find an apartment (I've lived in rez for 4 years so this is pretty exciting for me), meet totally new people, as I know no one in that city, and I get to start fresh with all the people I meet-- classmates, profs, etc. That's a pretty liberating feeling.

Except now I've started worrying about how I will measure up to my classmates, as this is a somewhat high-profile school! (In Canada at least!) ;-)

I lie, I wait, I stop, I hesitate, I am, I breathe, I meant, I think of me. Is it any wonder I can't sleep? All I have is all you gave to me. Is it any wonder I found peace through you? Its not enough, just a touch. Its not enough. I taste, I love, I come, I bleed enough, I hate, I'm not, I was, I want too much. Its not enough, just a touch. Its not enough.

Don't worry about that - if they have a smug, superior attitude you can feel all smug and superior because you don't (on the sly). tongue.gif Well done!

Congrats, that's great news! Getting to know new people can be lots of fun, everyone else will probably be wondering how they'll measure up too, so don't worry about that.
