This week started with frosty cold temperatures that preserved last weekend’s snow. In the office, answering questions and processing applications was the primary activity. Only a few days later, the outdoor temperatures have risen, rain has washed away the snow, and I’m throwing myself into a pile of applications (virtual pile, that is — we read online) for the first time in this round of the process. Reading applications at home is a weekly adventure for the Admissions staff.
Warm weather outside makes me a happy reader inside. On an ordinary January reading day, way too much mental space is consumed by keeping myself warm. Today, it’s comfortable inside and I can focus only on the applications. That, and a cup of coffee, which is now ready. Back to reading!
