So, I'm applying to b-school. I'm kind of getting a little excited at the idea. The biggest problem I have with going back to school is the thought of the debt I will end up with. DO NOT WANT! But when I get past the fear of never paying off my education, I actually like the idea. I'm almost even excited at the thought of maybe moving to the deuce if I end up at U of M, even though it's not my first choice. I do like my cousins and free room and board!

But now I have to pretend I'm medicated and just write my goddamn essays. I have about 6 or so to write between the two schools. But I'm not writing tonight because tonight is for watching Boardwalk Empire. And maybe Weeds. And some Inbetweeners.

Oh, and tonight is for lamenting that I finished Doctor Who Series 5. When I finished series 4, I was fine. Ten was gone and I figured I wouldn't really like Eleven and I was in no rush to watch it. I waited a couple of months, in fact. But, it turns out, I LIKE Eleven. A lot. He's not Ten, but he doesn't have to be. He's quite awesome in his own right, just as Nine was, and I'm sure 1-8 were, too. So I really really want MORE! Dammit. I didn't want to like Who. I mean, I still think it's completely silly and I HATE episodes that have either Daaleks or Cybermen, but it's just so entertaining. And I finally really like the companion. I hated Rose and Donna, and while I liked Martha, Amy is just so much better. So, now I need it to come back. Stupid waiting until Christmas.

In other news, my mother has just now decided she is going to be super negative about the MBA thing. She's acting like I just came up with the idea today and didn't communicate with her about this two months ago when I approached both my parents about it. Oh, and like I haven't been telling her I need to study for the GMAT every time I talked to her since then. Lovely.

Two entries in one day ... You scare me!

Going back to school sounds great, aside from the obvious debt issue unfortunately. Which other school are you looking at?

Debt is the very unfortunate side-effect of going back to school, but just think of how much money you make on the other side of it.

While I don't have my MBA, I actually run an MBA program and work with students every day. Coming from an arts background, I am pleasantly surprised every week at how interesting my students are and how most of them no longer fall into the d-bag, business stereotype that they used to. Please put your mother's mind at rest by letting her know that getting an MBA won't turn you into a bad stereotype. :) The business world actually values creativity nowadays.
