About three months in to my two year Peace Corps term I decided to go to grad school when I got home and began obsessing. On my weekly trip to the capitol city, I would copy and paste page after page or poorly loaded content from university websites and compile them into guides on my computer. I got pretty into tables of contents. From there I would read through each guide, judging the school’s education program on three excel pages of factors, organized by priority. After a year and a half, I had a spreadsheet of over 40 schools. I applied for three.

I’m a grad student from a small town in the Midwest. I’m the type of person who wants to travel and explore all day and then come home and watch Netflix all night. I hope that one day I’ll be able to teach literature at a college level, but until then I’m happy living in the now and enjoying time with my friends and family.
