Sorry to hear about everyone.  :(

soonertbone, if you don't mind my asking, on your LSN you said that you weren't very happy with your PS.  I was wondering what aspect of it you weren't satisfied with?

Well, there wasn't any one particular aspect. I just don't really like my writing. I've never been very happy with it, and I especially dislike writing creatively about personal things. You know? I've gotten better at research papers and the like, but other stuff I'm pretty bad at.

Plus, I didn't really feel like I had anything worthwhile to say. I've not had any particularly noteworthy experiences in my life (so far), so I was forced to just kind of ramble (I felt) about random stuff. I'm very glad that part of the process is over. :)

As far as the PS goes, I think we're all our own worst critics.  At least you've done really well with your apps despite your reservations about it.   :)

I didn't get dinged. They just couldn't take favorable action on me. That's better, right?  ???

Oh well, there goes my one shot at getting with Meadow Soprano.

They dinged a goodfella and now a Goodgal?  Conspiracy?

No seriously, sorry to hear it and hang in there, you deserve better.
