I woke up at 8 this morning and immediately went to go check and see if I’d gotten into Middlebury–decisions were supposed to come out today at 8am. It was a no. Surprisingly, it didn’t hurt quite as bad as my first ever rejection had. As they say, the first cut is the deepest. With Middlebury as my 2nd rejection, I just didn’t care quite as much; I already have Michigan and at this point the main reason I want to get into the rest of the schools I applied to is just so I can say that I did. Crazy, I know, but true. No one likes to be rejected, even if they already have a terrific offer. It just makes the rejection much more bearable.
Today was one of those days where I feel as though I have so much that I could blog about (meaning a lot happened today) but I don’t think that any of what happened would make a terrifically interesting or humorous story. My 3 boy cousins from Florida (11 year old twins and an 8 year old) visited for a couple hours today on their way to the airport after visiting their old friends in Vermont. Usually, when they stop in something crazy and exciting happens, so I thought my blog post for the day had basically been already written, but today they were slightly mellow and actually well-behaved. This provided me with a lovely time bonding with the three of them but unfortunately did not provide me with any fantastic stories.
As I really don’t have anything else to say, until tomorrow, everyone!
