As you may know, I’ve been working on this application essay for graduate school.
So far it’s kind of garbage.
There are really strict parameters for the essay and I’m struggling to write anything with “sparkle” within those parameters.
I don’t really know how to address the huge gap in my resume, or the recent lack of volunteer time.
I really don’t want to divulge a mental health condition on a grad school admissions essay for social work because I don’t think it will do me any favors.
I’ve been taking care of a family member through this time as well, so I tried to kind of include that, but I’m not sure that’s convincing enough.
Pretty soon, this essay is just going to have to be what it is because I’m going to have to turn it in.
I am not going to stress about it once I do that.
I just want to turn in the best thing I can. Right now it doesn’t feel like my best.
