Small rant because there are a million things on my mind and I need to organize myself out loud.

The more I think about it, the more I realize applying for grad school right now is not a good idea. Since I’m on a 3 year BSci program, I only have transcripts and experience from my 1st and 2nd years, which isn’t much to show, and not a very good idea of what I want to specialize in. After my third and final year, I will have a much better looking transcript grade-wise and a lot more research experience. Hell, I’ll have my own project. I’ll have taken a variety of classes that’ll help me decide if I like theoretical stuff or, as I’m finding out recently, interesting experimental/engineering work. Plus, I’m going to do terribly on the Physics GRE exam a few weeks from now. I’ll do much better if I take it next year. Soooo…I don’t really know where to go from here. 

Game plan: Call admissions offices in the US and ask whether I should do an internship or Masters before I go to grad school. I’d be applying next Fall 2015 to start in Fall 2016, so I don’t know what to do 2015-2016. If I do a 2 year Masters, will I be able to join a PhD program in the USA that’ll only take 3 years instead of 5?

Do you know how hard it is to find a person that listens? It’s really hard. I don’t think most people realize how incredibly rare people that truly listen are. So when you find one, treasure the fuck outta them. And listen to them, too.

The only way to distract me away from eating too much is to make me cook. The problem is that this method tends to generate more food.
