I got my new cubicle assignment yesterday. The room is only around 5′×5′ and I share it with another graduate student, but it has a door that locks and a bookshelf where I can keep some of my books.
Next month I graduate from The University of Texas at Austin with a bachelors degree in linguistics with departmental honors. In September I start my graduate studies in the same department at UT, where I’ll be working on my masters degree with a specialization in computational linguistics. The original plan had been to apply for the PhD program at UT after completing my masters degree, but now my plans have changed. The new plan: Keio University.
