Bismillahi Ar Rahmani Ar Rahim.
Today I got my official letter of recommendation admitting me to a Public Health Master’s program in Chicago. ALHAMDULILLAH. It’s a huge load off my mind just to know that I’m admitted, alhamdulillah. I had some pretty major fears due to the fact that I come from a literary and social-science background. But Alhamdulillah. Allah provides. Alhamdulillah.
InshAllah, I won’t be the only writer in the mix.
The point is, Pinky, I’m one step closer to world domin-
World…uhh.. world…uhh,,,hmmm…uhh …dominos.
Yep. (Anyone remember Pinky & The Brain?)
Now, I have to decide between this program and an MPH program in Philadelphia. InshAllah whatever I decide will be the best choice.
The good part is that I love Chicago. I know it pretty well. Or at least I know how to get Pakistani food there (Devon street, represent!)
This pretty much means I’m going to be running around like a mad person (always been a leetle mad to begin with) for the next 2 years.
Gotta pick a school. Find a Muslim roommate & apartment. A job. Figure out transportation and learn how to get around the city. Financial aid. Pretend I’m good at math when I’m actually pretty horrible at it.
I could go on but I’m already getting anxiety just from blogging this.
OK. well. InshAllah, this just means that life’s getting better. We’ll see.
More on my MPH plans once I pick a school.
