Raindrops keep falling on my head...

Ugh. Why does life seesaw back and forth with such violence?

I just received my official Gates Cambridge offer today and found out that it's only for the duration of my Master's instead of for my PhD. I really, really hope this is an administrative mistake; otherwise, I think I'm screwed.

It's interesting to internalize this information and watch my mind detach from the new knowledge. After all, if this really is the case, I am potentially dead: I've turned down the rest of my schools, and I don't really have any other funding sources lined up, grad school financing being as limited as it is. So, I'm in a state of semi-hyperventilating denial. Something tells me this isn't good for my stress management goals.

Oh no! I can't believe they did that! That's so typical of grad schools. Well chica, if you need a shoulder (or an ear as it may be) to pass those raindrops onto... i'm here for ya :)
