And then the Harvard application came online, so even though it took an extra day to submit because I had to get tech support to fix something, at least it's in. It was kind of weird - in a way, it was a lot more detailed than the others (I had to list all my linguistics courses and linguistically-related courses, describe all my jobs since high school, plus give a lot of financial information) but in other ways it seemed a lot less nitpicky than the others. For instance, there was only one small section for 'published materials or patented inventions' (riiiight). (Which is great, obviously, seeing as I have NONE of that and some other applications devote a whole page to it.) And, as a bonus, the fee and recommendations can be done online after all! I thought they had to be on paper. That helps me out, because otherwise I was going to have to print the sheets, fill them out, and mail them internationally to my professors, plus mail a separate check to Harvard itself. Anyway, so the only thing that's a bit disturbing to me now is that Yale apparently hasn't received my GRE scores yet, while I sent them in May. Need to follow up on that. And I'm still waiting on the Brown application, of course, but that'll fall into place too.
Anyway, I got my 'abonnement' at the pool, so I swam 4k this morning and then 2k this evening with het Zinkstuk. I was actually really impressed by them - I was expecting a little club who just swam a few laps and then went and partied, but there were a LOT of people there and the group I swam with (the highest one) had four or five really hardcore girls in it. So I think this will be really good. And they do meets, too, although not very often.
Anyway, so now I have to go play basketball - why is everything on Mondays? - and then come back and read a bunch of Spanish articles. At least I got the creative writing done on Saturday.
