After that last powwow with dad, I decided to begin the planning process for my continuing education and ensuing career; I noted my planning steps in sequence on a piece of paper; the very next day I began calling contacts at the school in Des Moines, to begin that enrollment process, determine the apartment rental requirements, determine the dates involved (inclusive), finally determine how financing is to be achieved; I also needed to know if the school offered a placement program following graduation; this planning process was not as smooth as I expected it to be, with telephone tag delays, application delays related to mail delivery, follow-up delays related to unanswered or new questions which required re-contacting school officials; some apprehension began to set in as I wondered who my roommates would be and if there might be personality clashes in that mix; time seemed to crawl as I waited for final acknowledgments which would pave the way to my imminent departure and the beginning of my new adventure!
My Wakizashi might not help with the planning, but it could help to keep the peace! STAY TUNED!
