So, it’s official: I’m going to be a Duck. I sent the acceptance letter off to the University of Oregon this morning — watched the postal carrier take it away — and will be sending my housing application off over my lunch break. I let the program director know, too. I’ve also contacted my three outstanding schools and removed myself from consideration. So, official: Oregon, Oregon, Oregon. Woo!
In much less exciting news, I’m entertaining myself at work today by reading “The Inheritance of Loss” by Kiran Desai and by browsing through the nominees for “Smallest Coolest Apartments 2006” at apartmenttherapy.com. So far my favorites are “Shauna’s More Dash Than Cash” and “Kevin and Nicola’s Bright and Beautiful Bungalow,” though I haven’t been through nearly all of the entries yet. Apparently, I like the greens. Oh, and I like the Post-It Note Wall: “Bri & Chad’s Fab on a Budget.” Don’t think I won’t someday try that at home.
