Time to Bounce.../ Isley Radio Blog

I did another radio blog…

Isley Brothers Then and Now

Track Listing below....

Don’t know how I found the time…I managed to do my Grad checks…Core classes and Major check…I wasn’t worried about either…I’m graduating with 130 credits…I didn’t need ‘em…but I needed the extra GPA points. I won’t lie…I screwed up in ‘95… “The Summer of Love”…Boy…Sex in the summer (Prince reference)…and for all seasons ain’t no Joke! It can also reek havoc on your GPA if all u doing is loving…..

I’m proud to say that in the last two years while being a single mom, working, and going to school fulltime…I brought my GPA from a 1.98 (almost this close to being denied re-entry) to a whopping 3.3 (3.7 in my major). So when I talk about it yall…Just know that it has been a serious struggle.

I have settled on my Ph.D options…because yes… you can be accepted with a BA if you show academic prowess….being on the Dean’s list every semester for the last two years (including summers) has entitled me to that right. More than likely I'll have to do my Master's first ...cause I still have to prove myself BLAHHHH.....My recommendations are from 6 prominent Professors from Afro American Lit, English Renaissance Lit(Shakespeare), and the Classics Department….I make a lot of connections….I take the GRE’s in December as well as the Subject Test (So I’ll be once again buried under books) I'm gonna have my 10 page and 20 page writing samples done in two weeks...

So here is where I’m applying:

Georgia State University-Atlanta
University of North Carolina – Greensboro
University of Memphis
University of South Carolina Columbia

In that order…

All have their benefits…and I have family or friends in all of the areas….So it’s basically who’s gonna give me the best package?…

Show me the Money! So I can get the fuck out of here by July 5th 2006!

Now of course I’m applying to City as a fallback…but I really don’t think I’ll need it…

Tune in for further info…And pics of the twins on Halloween.
