So as some of you may know, I spend one hell of a past couple weeks getting together my internship application for ASME (American Society of Magazine Editors) as well as roping various people - mainly Ben - into helping me out with turning it in. Just imagine how horrified I was when I logged into my e-mail this morning to find a letter from my faculty advisor, who was SUPPOSED to turn in my recommendation before noon YESTERDAY. And it said something along the lines of "Sorry, I ran out of time. Hope you did something about it. I´m leaving for a week now, bye"
What. the. Fuck.
Robert Samuels, I know you never liked her to begin with.
This situation has forced me to write two very degrading e-mails. One to the lady in charge of Medill Career Services, begging her for an extension for my recommendation. The other to an old composition professor who has written some recs for me before begging him to please PLEASE put together a crappy recommendation for me (god, I´m so ashamed of having to ask him like that). Augh. I hate myself. I hate my life.
Annnndd, I didn´t get into the Kotlowitz class. Which I guess is fine since I knew I wouldn´t but still it doesn´t help the general mood of my life at this moment.
Thank god for Angie´s e-mail. It definitely cheered me up.
Also I forgot my watch and cell phone this morning, and this is one of those days when you have a billion places to be and you really NEED a watch. So yes, my new watch is my digital camera. Pathetic.
Go figure that the weather is gray and rainy today as well.
Thank goodness everyone who reads this lives on the other side of the ocean. I might bite someone´s head off today.
