Okay then! All is figured out, all is arranged. I sent my tuition check yesterday, I’m arranging my flight today. Then all I need to is steel myself for the painful but oh-so-useful criticism, prepare to suck up information, and try to be patient.
Oh, and plan for not only the classes I’ll be teaching this year, but the week I’ll miss to go to VP. That part’s not so bad; if I get a good sub I can even give them great lessons that will actually be taught, as opposed to the usual “Oh my god I’m sick what can I have them do that won’t be a TOTAL waste of time?!?!?” when I need a sub in an emergency. Hell, I’ll even write the lessons for him/her.
I still keep expecting to get an email telling me there’s been a terrible mistake and I wasn’t actually accepted. My wife is probably ready to slap me the next time I say that. But that’s life in my head, I suppose.
One good side effect is that getting that “Yes, you’re not a total loser at this” has reenergized my writing. I’ve been having trouble forcing myself to work, but now I’m going like crazy, trying to convince myself to trust in what’s coming out of my fingers.
Speaking of which, I’m behind on today’s quota. See you later!
