Since I'm a senior, I've decided now is a good time to look for grad schools. I still have about a year and a half to go with all the major-swapping and whatnot, but I really should make a choice by the end of the semester.

So far I'm considering Pacific Lutheran University and University of Washington. I'll also apply to UNLV just as a fall-back plan if things don't pan out, regardless of what else I turn up with.

I'm going to search for one in Oregon and one in the northeast, but I feel like I'm off to a good start. The biggest hurdle so far has been finding a university that offers an MFA in Creative Writing in a place that I would actually like.

I feel simultaneously excited and nervous; I'm mentally missing Las Vegas every time I think about it. However, I've reached an age where it's time to spread the proverbial wings and start to explore other avenues. Seattle appears rather interesting, and even if I don't go to school there, I'll try to make a trip out there to actually see the city beyond the airport on my way to Alaska.

For once in my life, I feel like purpose has been granted to me: influenced by the divine and carried along by the mundane.

I intend to meet it.
