What’s in Sarah’s Mailbox

Because I don’t want to be the only one waiting for an acceptance (yay!) or rejection (much wailing and gnashing of teeth) letter from DU, I have decided to start a new series on my blog called, aptly, “What’s in Sarah’s Mailbox”.

(Note, that I am really not anticipating an answer until March 17–if they say no, or April 27–if they say yes. So, my perspective is in order and not super obsessive. Only slightly.)

2.15.09 Nothing. Duh. It’s Sunday and since the beginning of time, mail has not come on Sundays.

Church, however, was good. Lots of tears, but not because of mail. Mostly, because of a fabulous conversation with Mike and Jill who are two of the most awesome, godly people I know. And their kiddo, Jonas, is pretty cute, too.

“And now we wait. Yes, sadly, there will be much waiting, wailing, and gnashing of teeth (and possibly neurotic gnawing on furniture) until I find out if I am good enough for the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee. However, as my boss, John, so elegantly stated, I am now an official member of the “Performance Based Acceptance Club”. In fact, I am vice president. To which I promptly replied (with my infamous impish grin) “Why can’t I be President?”

 

Well thanks for all of you who were praying.

I am one step closer to becoming… a librarian! (Think, The Mummy)”

Three years later… I am not a librarian. I am an English composition/research writing instructor at Colorado Christian University. And once again I am waiting. Only this time, I am waiting to find out if I have been accepted into the University of Denver’s PhD program in creative writing.

Waiting sucks.
