Ever the Planner
Disclaimer: the thumbnail picture for this post has nothing to do with the content, I just think my niece is really cute.
As you might have picked up from my last post (as long ago as that was), the title of this post is absolutely about me.
I think the desire to plan things is embedded in my genes (though I should consult some of my Biology-major friends on the validity of that statement). I need a B and C for this, a contingency for that, and a healthy sprinkling of triple-checking all around, just for safe measures. I have to be punctual relative to those who are punctual, such that, for example, I have been known to help set up events that I will be attending a few minutes later. Due next week? Do this week. All this being said, it should come as no surprise that I have been working lately on my “ten-year plan”: from now to the end of graduate school.
There is no way I’m getting into the details now, but over the last few weeks of this semester, I’m going to share the information that I discover regarding how I’m trying to set up my future. I think I’ve finally settled on what sets up the future that I want to pursue.
In a few days, I’m going to attend a pre-law workshop–that’s right, I’m thinking of law school. Also in the near future is a big move for me: I’m applying for a transfer from the College of Arts and Science to Peabody! I’ve thought for a long time that I would like to teach, so by getting an education from one of the best programs in the nation, I think I’ll be setting myself up for success (though really I want this background in case I become a university professor). In short, there’s a lot of new information coming my way, and soon enough, I will be settling on my path for the next few years.
As is beautiful about college, though, not everything revolves around academia. For example, the upcoming weekend is host to a little something called MOSAIC, which is a multicultural recruitment program. Basically, prospective students will stay with their hosts for a couple of days to check out a super, fantastic university. Stay tuned for photos and stories! Also, a while back, I and nine of my friends applied for and were accepted into the Mayfield Project. I’ll leave out the plethora of nuances, but the premise of our project is that we want to explore various cultures and advocate for a better environment of acceptance and respect at Vanderbilt.
What a welcome back from spring break, right?
Anyway, there’s a lot to talk about on my part, and it will come in slews when I actually have the information. Coming soon!
