We received news that I’ve been accepted to Syracuse University’s Newhouse School of Communications. Yippee! Syracuse isn’t my first (or second, for that matter) pick, but it is a really good school, so I’m excited that they let me in. We’re expecting responses from my first and second choices in the next week or so, and then we can get down to business with this “moving back to the mainland” thing we’ve been talking about for months. Until we hear back from Indiana and NYU, though, we are thinking about the prospect of four feet of snow next winter. It would more than make up for all the snow we’ve missed while we’ve lived here, that’s for sure.
