David TK Wong Fellowship Rejection

I got my standard rejection letter today from the David Wong Fellowship. I make as my lesson from this that I can afford to be more humble, that in life I am too prideful, and that I should not expect too much. We do win some and lose some, after all.

I add this late, and I apologize for it, but I must thank everyone who offered their well wishes before -- it was very kind of you, and even though I did not get the grant, I am still grateful for the kind thoughts.

This was. I rather expected it, having not heard from them in a while. Do wonder who won this year.

Thanks, petal. I suspect, y'know, that I set myself up for being really happy about making the shortlist before here. :)

Oof. How am I going to live vicariously through your achievements? huh? :)

uh, anyways.

What's with the humility thing? The fellowship could have rejected you for a number of different reasons. It could be that someone just was feeling off that day.

You could still be totally awesome.

I agree. In fact, I think possibly they rejected you because you're just so goddamn awesome. I bet they hit the panic button and are hiding under their desk lest your imposing shadow once again appear on their desk!

Also, hamster icon!

I hope you guys realize you're making me cry out here! Like a girl! (Don't be arguing the logistics now either...)

I'm sorry you didn't get it!
But don't let it make you forget your own awesomeness! I agree with the person who pointed out how arbitrary these things can be. :)
