When we were little, my best friend Allie and I were dorks.
No, like DORKS. Seriously.
We had a lot of fun and managed fine, but we definitely had our shares of the "awkward stage." Messy hair, crooked teeth, huge braces, funny glasses... you name it, we had it.
Well, when we were in the 5th grade, I decided to have a crush on the cool, skateboard dude on our bus. His name was... Brandon. ...I think. (and it was so important then, haha...)
So, in classic Elementary-school-dating style, I passed Brandon a note. "Do you like me?"
Underneath the question were two answers: Yes or No. Next to them I put checkboxes (usability first, people).
When I got the note back, I was really nervous. I knew there was no way skateboard guy would like me... but maybe he would...
and "maybe" is what I got. Underneath my "yes" and "no" options, Brandon had written in a "Maybe" option, drawn a box next to it, and checked that one.
There was hope for skater dude and I! Maybe I wasn't such a dork after all!!!!
Well, later, I found out that my bestie Allie, after delivering the note, convinced Brandon to put "Maybe" so he wouldn't hurt my feelings :)
That's what best friends are for!
So... what's the point of that story?
Right! Well, yesterday I got a great MAYBE...
Thank you for your submission to EXPLORATIONS: The Journal of Undergraduate Research and Creative Activity for the State of North Carolina.
[Cue the drumroll...]
...your submission has also been reviewed by three members of the Explorations Editorial Board and me. Based on these reviews, I am requesting that you revise and resubmit your paper, “Composition 2.0 in the Classroom: Studying the Integration of New Media and Multimodal Composition”, still for consideration in the 4th edition of Explorations to be published in November 2009.
it's a maybe!!!
I posted a while back about how I submitted my honors thesis from undergrad to a research journal. I've finally heard back! Even though I'm in grad school now this would be a great publication line for my resume/cv...
Even though in the rest of the e-mail, they basically said... your research is great! Just write better, it's still great news.
I can do it! I got a maybe! And this time, I don't think Allie put them up to it... although maybe I should call her and check...
Great news for a Monday! :) Now to find time to do those revisions...
In other news...
my next post will be about knitting.
because I haven't been knitting.
And if I force myself into a promise of it for next post, I'll be more likely to do it. I missss knitting. But haven't made the time! So now I will make time.
Also, I look like this.
Because I'm in the Christmas spirit already?
Because I have a cold.
Honestly, I think I sneezed 10 times in a row yesterday.
My little nose is quite red.
But hey, at least it's not Swine Flu :)
For now, bring on the Kleenex! And lots of ramen... mmm...
