Not Looking Good

I'm getting used to the idea of becoming resigned. No Dream U for me. There hasn't been word either way, so "who knows what might happen," but realistically? It's getting to be a little late in the week.

All is not lost. Other possibilities in the works.
But none are quite so exciting.
And..........it was such a good year for medievalists.
And yet I didn't....................

You never know... sometimes these decisions are delayed unexpectedly. It's best not to keep your hopes too high, but there's also no reason for dejection yet. It ain't over 'til it's over.

Thanks, sq. I know---I was just in a pretty low place yesterday. I'm actually kind of embarrassed about how wallowy I got. But oh well; I'll leave the post up, because it does represent how I felt last night.

What Now? said...

I'm so sorry to hear about no news from Dream Uni and about the other rejection. I well remember the horrible waters of rejection and anger and self-pity and envy and all the rest that you described in that previous post. One does eventually emerge from those waters, but it's a terrible experience and one is never quite the same afterward.

All of which is to say, you have my sympathies during this difficult time.

Aw shit - that's absolutely right what Sq. said - it's very possible that if they have offered the job to someone else (and that's not certin) that the other person will say no!

I'm thinking about you! Fingers continually crossed...

Thanks, MW and WN--and in the meantime, I'm reconciling myself to Other Possibility, about which I'll blog once things have been decided.

Feeling much better this weekend than I was last week, by the way.

It's true--these things can be really slow. But even if Dream U doesn't come through, the interviews/visits are a good sign for next year.
