Looking glass

I am on day two of seriously trying to write my personal statement (basically a 2-3 page essay describing why I want to be in the Counseling program, and why they should love me) for my Masters application package. Finishing it is the only thing between me now and me being all applied.

Writing this is much like trying on bathing suits in a very small dressing room, under dramatically awful light. It's just me reading this so far, but in my head, my dressing room is surrounded by twenty year old 6 foot tall women wearing size 0 suits.

It's a very self conscious process, and I haven't even been accepted into the program yet.

I don't need bolstering from y'all. I know I have a good skill set for this profession and program. I just need to get it on paper.

You can do it, and you can believe in anything wonderful you have to say about yourself =)

Getting it down on paper is the toughest part ever. You'll get it done, sometimes it just takes a bit to get the right words to flow. :)

....So take it off the hanger,
try it on and
stand straight and proud.

Well, it's been a week now, so I'm hoping that you have some good stuff recorded by now. I'm sure you do.
