Ok bit of backlogging time. So maybe I will stop thinking about going to grad school OH GOD WHY I JUST WANT TO NOT GO TO SCHOOL BUT I SHOULD—err. (not even going to get into the part where I don’t even know which of my two options I’d go with. NOT both again.)

I had this on Sunday night and it was a fantastic tea dessert. I’ve not tried lime chiffon yet, but I had just had lemon chiffon a week prior to this and didn’t really think it tasted like a blend of both. I don’t really pick up on the cream strongly like I do in this one.

This has both lemon and lime for sure, like I can actually taste each one distinctly…unlike a lot of other things touted as lemon-lime where it’s just some vague citrus flavor.

This is definitely pretty sweet by itself too, I think it’d make a pretty interesting latte, maybe an iced one would be in order too.

The cream is more prominent in Lime Chiffon, IMO. I definitely have to compare them all though…

I’ll try that one tonight finally if I can figure out where it is

Oh what are the grad school options? What is your major in? School is way better than working. At least when your my age it seems as such. My daughter is just getting set up for her first year of college in the Fall. I so wish I could go!

momo

I’d probably stay at Georgia State, and options are political science or economics. I’d really only do it full time if I knew I could get an assistanceship because I’m not paying out of state tuition ever again. Otherwise I’d work for at least a year and then go part time so I can be in state FINALLY.

Azzrian

Yeah out of state tuition is a KILLER! Socioeconomics would be fun!

What are your chances of getting an assistantship? That is one of the biggest differences between the humanities & the sciences- in the sciences, most of the time they do not even accept you into the program unless they have an assistantship for you.

I would love to go back to school, and looked at GA State (originally from GA), but the fact that I would have to pay for it is a real deterrent.

momo

I have no idea, I only really looked at it for the political science dept. It doesn’t really say how many there are, just that the majority are research assistant and not teaching assistant, but they also are given so many waivers per semester for out-of-state students to be changed to in-state so that’s an option too.

I also just found the econ grad dept has a fall semester in Switzerland so I am now leaning back towards econ but not immediately after finishing this fall for sure because I want to be able to do that.

That sounds like some tough decisions! I guess it sorta depends what you want to do, but from what I’ve heard economists are highly in demand, compared to a lot of the other “arts” disciplines. Universities have to pay Econ profs more than other profs, otherwise they’d just get jobs outside of academia. :P

Good luck getting assistantships though! I’m not too sure how it works up here in Canada, but so far both offers my bf have had came with TA’ships so his tuition is more than paid for. #phew

Most science projects here are funded, which covers tuition, but leaves not very much to live on. Tuition for a year of grad school almost anywhere in ON, for domestic students, is over $8000. Stipends are between about $16500-$18500. It. Sucks.

Good luck making your decision, momo! It’s definitely a tough one. I don’t know how arts graduate programs work… I’d like to think it’s less stressful than what I"m doing now, haha.

momo

Yeah after today’s macroeconomics exam I am wondering why I ever thought it’d be a good idea. The one nice thing is in the first place I’ll have two degrees and if that doesn’t help me do what I want then I guess I can, but I think overall I’d really like polisci better…it goes into statistics more and I don’t think I could handle the math in economics. It’s bad enough to be getting a BA in it and having to struggle through these models that probably use calculus and I have no idea what I am doing.

Cavocorax

:| Ugh. Yeah. I was surprised at how much math economics requires! And a lot of the profs say that the more math you have the better, which has led toa few people dropping out to business instead. Polisci sounds like a much better alternative!
