Being Impatient is a quality that I do not admire about myself. Since I’ve been home – wait, scratch that… since February I’ve been waiting for an admissions decision from Ryerson about the masters I applied for. Before leaving on my trip I applied to Ryerson for a Masters of Urban Planning and Development (and maybe I shouldn’t announce that applied, you know in case I don’t get in and it’s embarrassing, well I’m not embarrassed I’m just impatient – besides there are only 200 applicants and only 30 are accepted). I went to the open house and they said that they would try to get admissions decisions out by February, so in my head I was like sweet that’s not too bad. My application (which took forever) was completed and submitted on December 13th, the day before I left for my trip. When February rolled around I was excited that within a few weeks I would know if I would be going to school in September or not. First week of February went by, then the second, then the third, and finally the last week of February I was in Australia just feeling so impatient, all I want is a decision. Needless to say, it’s April 8th and I still haven’t heard a thing from Ryerson, actually that’s a lie – while I was away I got one email saying something like, “Thank you your application has been submitted and is under review, blah blah blah, please do not contact us about admissions decisions basically because we are too busy“. So I’m sitting here on April 8th waiting…impatiently to find out whether or not I have gotten into school. I’ve checked the mail everyday since being home, and that’s more than I’ve ever checked the mail in my life and I’ve lived here for almost 15 years. (ew that’s another thing I’ve lived in Canada for almost 15 years, which means 15 years ago I was in grade 2.. why do I feel so old). Sorry I got off topic. I’m at the point now where I’m soooooo impatient I won’t be hurt if I don’t get in (well, okay … maybe a little), but my plan b for not getting into school is just as exciting as going back to school. I just want an envelop addressed to me from Ryerson with a decision so that my next two years won’t be completely unknown! Is that too much to ask? I hope not.
In other news, I start at Moxie’s tomorrow I’m excited, and yesterday I got a lesson on how to apply make up because I’m a complete n00b when it comes to the application of make up. I tried it out myself today, I’m pretty impressed. I’m excited to get back to work because I’m excited to save money for my next trip. I’ve been making little pieces of paper with travel quotes on them, they are going up in my room as inspiration to save my money for my next trip! I’ll share one of my favourites “I would rather own little & see the world than own the world and see little of it”. That’s definitely the motivation I need to save money and it is absolutely true, another one I love is, “Travel, is the only thing you buy that makes you richer“. I love this quote, why would you want to buy a ton of materialistic items when traveling is the only thing you spend money on that makes you richer. It makes you into a more well rounded, accepting person. I will never be bored of traveling, and that is something that truly frightens me.
Hope everyone in Southern Ontario enjoyed two seasons in one day today, and I hope the rest of you have had a lovely day.
Peace and Love.
