5 more days...

To say that I might be a little anxious to find out if I got into JET would be like saying that I think George W. Bush might be a Republican. Soon...

I had more JET dreams again last night. In this dream I got accepted, Emily got wait listed, and Alex (who isn't even applying) got accepted. The insanity needs to stop! Only 5 more days...

Just a funny little anecdote

I was in a video game store this afternoon buying (what else?) a video game. As I was checking out the cashier asked me if I would be interested in buying the used video game frequent buyer card (it had a snazzier name than that). I told her that I might be moving soon and that I probably wouldn't be able to get the full use out of it. She replied, "well, we have stores all over the place, so unless you're moving to Japan, you can still use it."

The rumor mill is working overtime

Supposedly a girl on Big Daikon has already recieved her rejection letter from JET. She applied up in Washington. Rumors are flying around that JET is mailing out the rejection letters before they mail out the acceptance letters. April 4th is still 17 days away. I hope I get in.

I've already had several dreams about JET. I've had two different dreams about being accepted. I literally hope that my dreams come true.

Still waiting...

This waiting thing is going to kill me. JET tests your patience as much as they test you for whatever else it is they look for in an ALT.

23 days and counting the hours...

One Month!

Exactly one month left until I know my future. The first week of April has the potential to be the worst, or the best week of my life. My tentative date for the completing of my thesis is March 31, Fox Day is usually right around that time, and it's also the week when Rollins and the English Department begin to deliberate the senior awards.

Honestly, I really think that getting rejected from JET won't be such a big deal, as long as my thesis is well-received. At least I have total control over whether or not that happens; JET is now in the hands of fate (and Tokyo).

Either way, my last semester of college has been absolutely wonderful. No matter what happens to me after graduation, I'll always have that.

32 Days and Counting...

I've been going over every possible outcome for the email that I'll be receiving on April 4th. I'm nervous. I hope we get in.
