Pssst Dogen?
Now that the beer drinking bit is over, can you find out what they didn't like so you know what to target in round two? Maybe go to that lazy profs office and not leave without a reference?


P.S. Apologies if you're reading this first thing in the morning

The beer drinking is hardly over! I've got lots! And wine!

And not really. It's like applying for a job. You either get an invite for an interview, or you get nothing. And the professor I spent three years doing research with doesn't have a problem writing letters. He just has a problem writing good ones... I found out recently from another student that the letter he wrote for her was a form letter in which he'd failed to cut and paste her name over that of whoever he'd last submitted a letter. And nothing impresses a grad school like a letter that is so broad as to apply to any student ever!

The drunchies... to eat or not to eat. That is the question. Whether tis nobler in the mind to bear the slings and arrows of drunken hunger, or to get take out, and by getting take out end it.

I either need to eat something or go to bed... but I haven't finished my beer. So, to drink, to sleep, and by a sleep to say we end the heartache, but let's say that we can't fall asleep because of the hunger that flesh is heir to.

I can't remember why I started this post, but now I'm hungry as fuck. I'm going to make a veggie burger.

My last post, previous to the one previous to this one, lacked a "for whom." I apologize for the lack of clarity wrought by this poor grammar.

Interview over. I think it went well. Maybe. Possibly.

Arc, you should get Michael to write you a letter of recommendation.

I like the optimism you have shown to a terrible situation.

+ New PT exercises!
+ More activity!
- She said "it won't take as long to get back to where you were in martial arts as it took to get there the first time." This is not comforting when it took me 4 years to get there.
- She is running out of things to treat (she doesn't treat girl bits directly). I still have pain. I may need more diagnostics.
+ I sat in a hard chair for 30 mins without pain. Yay me!
