(unlikely dreams)

donderdag 16 juli 2009

Well, the first 'big' letter is in -- I got an interview at ECU!!! January 22nd at 1pm. I'm really excited. I wasn't expecting to hear from them until much later, since they don't start interviews for six more months. UF, on the other hand, starts their interviews quite soon -- end of August or beginning of September, they say; the priority deadline was July 1st -- so I'm anticipating that I'll hear from them within the next few weeks, then hit a 'dry spell' with little communication from anyone else until October or so. Cross your fingers, everyone!

Also, my suit arrived today and it is GORGEOUS. A friggin' steal, too, at $110 (down from $250). I rock. Now I just need some good dress shoes.

Still fighting with CFI over my repayment plan... the bottom line is that they messed up and canceled the income-sensitive plan I'd requested (a mistake which I discovered purely by accident; they're lucky I happened to log on to the website), and now they're telling me that yes, they can fix it, but that I'll still have to pay more than double my regular amount for the first month before the income-sensitive plan can kick in again. I just emailed customer service politely asking if we could rethink that, since the error was on their part and not mine. We'll see what happens.

Anyone with nothing to do: go see the sixth Harry Potter movie. L and I went to the midnight show Tuesday night with our friend Rose, and it was great -- maybe even the best movie so far. Getting to sleep at 3:45am left us dragging for the remainder of the week, though... you all have no idea how glad I am that it's the weekend!
