One week from today, I will be submitting my first round one app!! It's kind of crazy. I thought I would be a lot more worried about it at the moment, but lots of last week's stressing seems to have paid off in the sense that I'm not as behind as I thought I was. Yes, my career essay still lacks a bit of pizazz and focus, but it's not that bad and the rest of my essays require additional work, but nothing too horrible.
Luckily, this week is really open for me in terms of other stuff and my new project at work seems to be relatively manageable for the next week before it implodes. So, really, all is good! I will continue plugging away and we can celebrate later.
