The woes of graduate school

I know, I'm just a flurry of links today, but, as someone who has received a total of 23 higher education rejection letters,* somehow this really spoke to me. Given that the wedding blog world seems to be overrun by poor souls like me willing to grovel before graduate school admissions committees, I thought some of you might too.

*In case you're wondering, yes, I have by and large recovered. Though, yes, these letters are also contributing to the big-life-decision phase D. and I are currently facing.


  1. Hey there! This is my first time stopping by your blog and I'm really enjoying it so far.

    Just thought I send you a good old "stay positive," sounds like you might need one. And yes, I speak from way too much experience being on the receieving letters of that shitty nature!

  2. Hey Kerry, thanks so much for stopping by! It's lovely to have you.

    My last rejection came a few months ago, so I've settled nicely into a sort of cynical amusement about the whole thing and found the article quite amusing!

    And clicking through to your blog...


Blogs have opened up a world of community and conversation between people thousands of miles apart. I love that. I do not love judgmental or nasty comments. They do not engender conversation and community.
