I just sent off a rough draft of my personal statement for the fellowship program I am applying to to a friend to look over. It’s due this Friday and I’m feeling a lot better about getting it done and sending in an application package that will hopefully be good
enough for an interview. So glad I pushed myself to keep writing tonight instead of taking a break. I told myself I just had to keep pushing myself now instead of risking jeopardizing putting together a quality application and burn the midnight oil. I keep thinking about all of the opportunities this fellowship will open up – both professionally and personally – and I am getting really excited but don’t want to get my hopes up too much!
