Current Mood: poseury
I got three letters in the mail yesterday. One was from MIT, one was from Georgia Tech, and one was from Clarion West.

All three rejected me.

I think I liked it better when I wasn't getting mail.

Sorry to hear that. Where are you waiting to hear back from at this point? The downside of the economic catastrophe is that a lot of grad schools are swamped with people dodging unemployment.

No one. That was the last of them. :[

At least I have an industry job, finally? Even if I'm not doing industry work.

I'm really sorry Kevin. That is very hard and very galling. I'd say something in the line of don't get discouraged/what doesn't kill you will make you stronger...but I highly doubt that you are in the mood for that kind of thing. I find that there are two things that are most comforting in these types of situations: a good cry, followed by a nap in a nice warm bed with some monster cookies (chocolate chip cookies with mini m&ms in them) from Corner Bakery; or being in a racquetball court beating the hell out of the ball.

Having access to none of those comforts, I settled for going into hell and shooting demons (thanks, DoomRL).

But thank you. I feel a little better now.

I'm sorry to hear that, sounds like a huge letdown. At least you're having a good time at your new job; hopefully it will persist or spawn new opportunities.
