I forgot to mention.
Another reason for that thumbs up pic…actually, the reason I did the thumbs up pic: I won a scholarship. Not a huge one, but a decent one and my crappy grades from my undergrad seem to have been somewhat diluted by my current awesome.
When I got the email, it told me I had until the 8th to accept or decline the scholarship. After I thought it over…ha! I called up the grad dept and asked them how I go about accepting. The woman was VERY kind and told me to “…log into peoplesoft [our student website for stuff like this]”. I was already there. Before she could tell me much more, I had found my way through the 2-3 easy links that would allow me to accept the dang thing. LIke, it was written out like “accept/decline dang thing” in front of me. The woman was SO very patient as I apologized for making her hold my hand through this tremendously easy process.
So…at least I know one person is wondering how the hell I did it.
