1) I just got that rejection letter from Michigan for Fiction this morning that I've been waiting for all week. Because of this speakeasy and other blogs saying people got emails two weeks ago, I knew it was coming, thus it really wasn't so bad. In fact, I'm surprisingly OK with it. It was a very nicely written letter, then I ripped it to shreds and moved on. Rejection sucks; but knowing it's coming somehow softened the blow.
2) I wish I had told no one I was applying, because as the reality that I might not get in anywhere becomes more and more apparent, it will suck when people start asking where I'm going and I have to say "No one wanted me; I'm selling my car and using the money to backpack around Europe."
3) 1 down, 12 to go. Happy 1st of the month to all and to all a good month.
March Madness, eh?
