I was talking to Sandy today (who is from the former East Germany) and we were joking about universities having to take us for our diversity. She was like "I'm the international female victim of communism, they have to take me!" and I was like "And I must struggle to overcome my mixed-heritage, military past."

We have become waking stereotypes! :-P

It sounds like the back of a very bad Oprah's bookclub novel...

*Edited to add: It's always about overcoming your past and returning to your roots. From now, "The Graduate Experience" becomes "Operation: Overcoming your past and returning to your roots."

I was enjoying the post until you implied that Oprah would pick out a bad book... I love Oprah. :)

I hate waiting, I'm sorry to say but it's comforting that you haven't hear anything, either. I'm sure you will, but it's nice to know I'm not the only one.

Dude, I haven't heard; you can't leave me out of the "it sucks yo" club.

Stereotypes are the subject of the day. (along with waiting - which is perhaps more aptly described as subject of the month)

There's always room in the It Sucks club.

I'm sorry, but she has picked some doozies! Some of them even English professors would condemn.

But not to worry, when I write my book about overcoming my past and returning to my roots, it will be so bad that it will be good. I'll make Oprah cry.

This is what diversity essays and SOPs have turned me into! :-P
