If I can't have you...I don't want nobody, baby!

SOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO HYPER! I've been sliding around my kitchen singing along with "Saturday Night Fever" while putting away dishes as a study break while working on aformentioned stress number 1, which got an extension. And I was just talking with Xister about how I should blog more happy so random blog searchers won't contact my health care professional. Wow. Where does this sort of thing come from?

Not to answer that question, but in correlation, I got accepted for University of Chicago's masters program. I'll probably still go to BYU, but I'll look into it. Still. It's nice to know that some people you will probably never meet really liked you as represented by a slim packet of letters and writing samples.

And a manfriend of mine chose to come up and talk with me and sit right next to me (as opposed to a seat's distance away, as is customary in larger classes) and talk and walk with me after class, which makes me think maybe pigtails are a hot new look.

And it's sunny-ish.

And John Steinbeck effectively combined literary aspects to his war propaganda in order to create works that had a lasting impact as literature as well as immediate political results.

Hurrah!

I heart the pigtails and congrats on Chicago, whether you go or not that's awesome. I love Chicago, it's a great city.

I love happy spring and happy Mary. Also, I haven't seen the pigtails but approve sheerly on principle.
Also, who is Xister? Sometimes people comment on my blog and I don't know who they are and part of me is flattered and another part is consumed with itchy anxious curiosity...

Yay Chicago! Yay BYU! (I think - you may have to explain to me why you'll take BYU over Chicago...)

Steinbeck - we did not read even one thing by Steinbeck when I took 363. I was deeply irritated, seeing as the way I answer the question, "What's your favorite book?" (which, by the way, is a really despicable question) is by saying, "East of Eden." :)

Are you done with the whole thesis thing?

Mary's loved by the midwest! That includes me too!

Congrats on Chicago from me and the FIL, who apparently is terrified of contacting you directly. Probably for the best.

Congratulations on getting accepted! I'm with Makayla - I want to hear the pro-BYU logic too. Not that I don't love BYU, but since I will hopefully have the luxury of choosing between multiple MA programs in 3 years or so, I wanna hear your logic.
