70 days...

Not too much to update at the moment...I've been getting a couple emails from UG/art history dept...and it looks like I will be getting pre-registry (i have no idea what this is. I'm looking forward to actually understanding what they're talking about) and reading lists (I'm hoping it's light reading...and not books..if not...there goes a stress free August!).

I have collected all the information/forms that I need for my visa application! It's all sitting in a folder (minus some bank statements I'm going to print off at the last minute in hopes of having the most up to date information available). Everything will be sent of July 3rd. Kelly (LeBlanc) received an email letting her know that the visa application was being processed and she was notified the next day (via email) that it was cleared. So, I should know by then end of next week at the latest! She also got her passport back in the mail very quickly after the notification as well. It's a huge sticker that takes up the whole page! I'm so excited to get my own! I'll probably have it framed after the passport expires!

I've been having great email conversations with Kelly (Leblanc). She's the other American in my program that I mentioned in an earlier post. She and I seem to have a great deal in common, and it also looks like we'll learn a great deal from each other. It's such a nice feeling to know that when I get over there I'll already have a friend!

I emailed Liz Hancock about my dissertation (aka thesis). She seems to like the idea well enough, and said we can discuss it more once I get over there...but she said there would be professors who would be interested in talking more about my ideas more in depth.

Nothing else is going on with the Glasgow thing....at least not that I can think of off the top of my head. I just wanted to update this thing. :)
