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.
