Around a third isn't stellar odds but every little bit helps. Hope more comes from this. Chronic viral diseases scare the shit outta me.

steve is in Denver he'll know stuff.

I know it's super liberal, fairly expensive at least for housing as I understand it, and absolutely beautiful. They also got the devil's lettuce legalized over there, and I believe psilocybin/magic mushrooms have been decriminalized as well. I have almost family out there in the 'burbs and they love it.

European program said no and while I'm certainly disappointed, I'm still ecstatic to have gotten into two excellent schools already, which is more than a lot of people can say. Glad to finally at least get an answer on that program though. It's been a stressful wait and the anxiety was just getting worse every day, so I'm glad that's done now. Now I just have to let my family know I'm moving in with them in a few weeks...

I had a big plan if I got into the French program including a bottle of nice Champagne and making some big deal of it being from France where I'm heading and just being over-the-top like that. Don't have a plan now, so if any of you have ideas on how to break the news in a fun way to the fam, do let me know. I'll probably let them know tonight. I was also going to be cruel to you all and post a fake goodbye post and then only reveal in at the end of that it's a goodbye to America and not a goodbye to you all, but I don't get to play that game either.

At this point, just waiting on Georgetown, though I am thinking Emory is the most likely option right now. It's the only of the three that is an MPH, JHU isn't a global program, and I think Emory will have better connections at the CDC and stellar global operational opportunities, especially because that one is global epidemiology, not regular epidemiology like JHU. Georgetown is likely more policy-based being it's in DC and I would certainly prefer the operational side of things.

Other than that, nothing too exciting. Same shit different day.

Bones Owens' self titled album was finally released. Beautiful blues rock bliss. I have thrown his stuff in here before so here's one I don't think I have. The album is so good I highly recommend y'all find and listen to it all.

You should have seen that coming and been prepared. You really only have yourself to blame there.

I might have done great on them, just didn't want to take them. They're a huge pain and reduce people to numbers. It's how good did you do on this test and that's it. But it wasn't about how we'll I'd have done, it was about having less than no desire to take them and having the opportunity to not take them present itself. But yeah that's pretty much how it went.
