Frustrated Flailing!!!

1) Waiting to hear whether or not I'm accepted into a conference. Last week they emailed me asking for my CV, which I sent and apologized that I had forgotten, as I assumed I had forgotten to send it with the abstract. Turns out, nope, they didn't request it in the CFP, and a friend of mine who also submitted to the conference has not been asked for her CV, so we are both frustrated and annoyed and just want to know if we are in already. Grr.

2) We also both got waitlisted for courses at RBS this summer. Apparently I am 1-2 slots down the list, so there's hope I may yet get in, but grr.

3) I'm giving a short talk on Tolkien fan history at a local symposium on fantasy lit. It's two days of talks, live music, cosplay, and swordfighting demos, so hopefully it'll be fun. I bought tickets for both me and Scott, only he doesn't want to go, so I offered his ticket to the usual suspects at brunch on Sunday, and everyone else thought it would be boring too and declined. Which, I think I'm mostly annoyed because they are cool with going to see friends perform in bands or doing dance, so I'm not sure why going to a half hour talk is so objectionable. But whatever.

In GOOD news:

1) Sent off a book review today.

2) Got a scholarship to cover half my tuition for the typecasting class at the Wells Center I'm taking this summer. So YAY!!!! \o/

Thanks, bb!!!

It's been a pretty rough term, so that scholarship was a nice bit "all hope is not lost." :)
