• put apt. up for sublease
  • sell flute (and perhaps guitar) on eBay or other such site
  • finally have a meeting w/ the Ed. Research dept. guy and find out if I’m in and what kind of funding I’ll get
  • spend less time surfing the web and more time doing what I really want to do (going to the gym, going outside, playing piano)
  • get serious about finding a job/stop complaining about my current job

I think these steps, though rather small, will help get me back on my feet in a lot of ways.  I really appreciate the support and encouragement from those of you who have left comments. You have no idea what it means to me.
