Beware the Ides...
Maybe only if you are Caesar, because I actually had an amazing one!
(And I hope the same for you)
I received a fantastical e-mail from an MFA program at practically the same time someone at work asked,
"Have you heard from any other programs yet?"
I said, "No." (ho hum) But decided to check the infamous BlackBerry ten minutes later anyway.
Before you knew it, I was leaping for joy (both feet left the ground) and kicking a pharmacist in an unmentionable place while in the process.
(Not a good Ides for him, I suppose.)
There was no strange screaming, but something that sounded like a PANT for the rest of the day--they asked if I had returned to our atmosphere "yet," I exclaimed, "Nope!"
Ay, they have come, but they are not gone. (a soothsayer)
I am waiting to hear about the F-word (funding), of course. My chances seem better than at the "other" G. I'm practicing the power of positive thinking, nevertheless.
I'm currently 2/6 in this crazy MFA game (still waiting to hear from 4 other programs, I'm expecting to be 2/7 come Friday)...
but I have a feeling this may all work out...(positive thoughts--see!)
