Getting an invitation to the Foreign Service Oral Exam has been not just fantastic, but also an excellent means of procrastinating on Rice homework by browsing study guides, the yahoo groups, and FSO blogs ahead of my interview in January.. !!!
also: my reaction to the email yesterday (on my birthday!!) that I’m going on to the Oral Exam in the process to become a Foreign Service Officer!!
I really, really love that my birthday this year coincides with the Scottish independence vote! So much excitement.
There’s something about the first mildly chilly day at Rice that romanticizes the idea of fall, sweaters, mugs of hot tea, soup, and reading for class. All of which sounds like an ideal Sunday right now!
