Thanks - Sincerely

I was thinking about the number of times I've been asked "Have you heard anything yet" in the last three weeks. The number is too high to count. But do you know what it made me remember?

The day of my interview, I had to shut off my phone. Not so that it didn't make any noise during my interview and not because I didn't want to receive any calls, but because I got SO MANY text messages wishing me good luck or telling me that I would do awesome that it made me cry. Seriously there were upwards of 50 messages that one day. It even topped my birthday.

And since I'm a crier, albeit a logical one, I shut off my phone because I wasn't about to ruin my make-up on interview day :-)

It got me thinking about how lucky I am. About how many people are supporting me through this and how many people are wishing me well. I doubt there are many others who had more support (from such a variety of people) than I do.

So I wanted to say thanks. I just wanted to put that out there. Because while I'm quietly going crazy through the admissions process (no I don't know anything yet) it's the thought of all that support that keeps me sane. I figure that because of you guys, I'll be alright either way. I appreciate that. A lot.

I feel bad that I wasn't around that day! I actually ended up in Indy while you were up here! I think I remembered the Sunday after that and I was like: "Oh shit! I forgot about Emily on the 28th!"

It is nice to know you are loved by so many people. Relish and cherish it.

I believe others want to see people achieve their goals, especially when it is so clear that it is something the person seems destined to do. If I ever had a pet (likely a cat), I know I'd bring him or her to you for care.

Feb 21st...really??? Do you know it's March already? I know you're busy. This is just reminder that some of us check your blog often (and by often, I mean almost daily) so I'm just hoping you get inspired with something soon.
Miss you!
