And then there were five

I will not be attending the (barely ranked at all, which is exceptionally worrisome/terrifying) University of New Mexico.

Also I think I have a cavity.

There is currently running a GE commercial with Japanese macaques sitting in snow-ringed hotsprings. Would that I were a monkey.

sorry about unm :( I knew a girl at Emerson whose first round of MFA apps were all rejected. But the next year she got into like 3 schools. So much of it has nothing to do with how good you are--who else is in the applicant pool this year, if they aren't taking as many people for some reason, who's reviewing the apps, etc. But if you really want to go and you put in the work, you will get there! You can totally do it--I have faith. :)

Thank you, Maya. It is so hard not to blame the writing. I find it hard to believe that I would keep getting the big door slam if my writing was amazing... This is the first year I have actually put much out into the universe, so it makes sense that it is also the year of rejections. But goddamn if the year of rejections isn't wearing really thin.
