fuck you too, universe.

L didn't get the job. The dean called today to tell her this. The dean also told her that she could "offer no critical feedback" because L was amazing, and the dean could see her at the school and thought she was fantastic.

I'm writing this on my phone,  from the couch,  where I'm watching my zillionth episode of "Bones" while hopped up on vico.din. Which is to say, forgive my typos, I have a lot of excuses.

Uuuuuugggghhhhh. Fucking Monday, amiright? I'm both trying to be more diligent about posting weekly and also so uninspired by my job right now, that I am posting even though I'm kinda grouchy (couldn't tell, could ya?) and not entirely sure what I'm going to write about. I've been generally crabby/tender hearted/emotionally fragile for about a week now... Continue Reading →
