Perusing university websites has instilled some fear. Am I smart enough? Am I talented enough? From whom will I get recommendation letters? Where will the 10-20 page essays come from? Can I just write my own? Is there someone, rather than a book, who can guide me through this process?
All I know is I do not want to spend the rest of my life teaching at the secondary level. There is more out there and I want to opportunity to get it. Travel, learn, read, write, and cook. I really have to stop over analyzing everything, build confidence, and take what I want!
