I was awarded the TA position after all.
Someone said no to theirs. And now it's mine.
My tuition is covered, I don't have to be a nanny anymore, and lots of financial things...
but mostly, I got my dream. I got it. I'm going to be a lecturer at NC State, and I can't wait to cram grammar into the heads of English students. ME, a lecturer. EEeek!!
When I got the e-mail, I screamed and danced around... actually, it probably can't be called dancing. It was a freakout fit. I freaked out and called Matt... no answer. I called my Mom, she answered--
She thought something was terribly wrong.
I'm so happy I can't even believe it. Matt can-- he says he knew I'd get it. I didn't!! I'm kind of glad last week happened-- made me realize how important to me this is, sure-- but also made me see that even without this funding I could do school on my own if I have to.
So still, thank you so much for all your kind comments. Sorry I was pullin your leg the whole time. I had no idea someone would say no!
I'm going to go celebrate (by going to bed). But I just wanted to fill you in.
Also, as part of the weekend celebration...
I'm making these.
Anyone got a good, easy salsa recipe to go with that?
