What To Do While Waiting For That Magical Envelop

  1. I am still waiting, and waiting, and waiting ofor an admission letter. I keep calling the school every week but I don't want to be a pest. Please, give me some suggestions on what to do/what you did while anxiously waiting for that magical envelop. Any suggestion(s) is greatly appreciated because I'm running on fumes at this point.

    Excellent recommendation! I've been meaning to go to borders for some time now. It's just a little hard to squeeze in recreational reading when I have this pathophysiology book that weights more than me constantly staring my way, lol. I will treat myself anyway

    Ohhh read twilight. That's a good one that kept me busy for about a month. I have to wait until June. I'm not thinking about it until June first! Then it's time to panic.

    Good luck & best wishes!

    Thanks everyone for the suggestions. I applied to Dominguez Hills (only school I applied to) so a lot is at steak. I will definitely keep you all updated.

    If you really want to pass some time play a video game or two. I could (and have) sat on the XBox 360 for HOURS at a time. When I was pregnant I played Viva Pinata for about 5 hours straight on average. It is addicting, not very productive, but it will keep your mind off things.

    Good luck! I know what it is like to be driven crazy waiting on pins and needles to hear about something.

    I'm with you! I am waiting to receive my letter that won't be here until the end of May (or knowing my school mid-June)! The wait is killing me! I do work full time now but that is suffering too because all I can concentrate on is my letter!!! I have been waiting a long time and counting down the days until I give notice at my job (only 78 more days left - if accepted into Fall Semester)! I have been organizing my house though because as many people have stated on here, you won't have time once you're in school. Also, I am taking classes over the summer so that should drain some time but just know that you aren't the only one in the "hold" pattern!

    Thanks everyone! Right now, I work at a local hospital part-time and I, too (CalebMommy) find it hard to concentrate while thinking about that magical letter. I got some books the other day and I have re-arranged my entire house over 5 times to keep me busy, lol. I'm thinking about taking a class over the summer as well just for fun and to make time pass by. Thanks again for the suggestions, it all sounds great
