good things

Things are looking up finally! I am actually quite excited about what has been going on lately. Although I am pretty exhausted from working 30 hrs a week on top of school, and not sleeping or eating well, I am slowly getting through it.

Big happenings:
  • I got nominated for the Windgate Fellowship Award from the Center for Craft Creativity and Design through KCAI! I know it means more work to do, but I am excited to try for something really big like this. It is weird to see my blood, sweat, and tears paying off in this way.
  • I applied for the JET program. I don't hear back till January if I get an interview or not, which is ok since that is when I turn in my Windgate application. Hypothetically I will only have to worry about one thing at a time.
  • Ben and I are finally moved out of our old place and into our new! (for the most part) but still! A huge load has been lifted off my shoulders, and I am excited to make our new place homey.

Ok, so none of these are actual "happenings", but they are things that could lead to big happenings. The most exciting thing about all this stuff is that it is giving me confidence to try out for big new things. I am really thankful for all the people who have been helping me along the way (and there are so very many.) I know chances for getting these grants and jobs are slim but it is encouraging to see so many people supporting me. Cheesy right? I could almost barf with how happy and cheesed out I am.
