I have found my career

I have decided to move to the China wilderness and become a Panda whisperer.

In other news:

I received the first notification from one of my M.F.A. programs.  Actually, it was my first choice: Washington University in St. Louis.  This was the answer: no.

fuck.

Well, I was pretty bummed out.  Then I had to go immediately after finding out to this rather silly, extremely tedious audition session for my Directing class.  Nearly everyone in the class is crazy.  The class itself is crazy.  I have to say, I am not at all impressed with the Theatre department here.  They're definitely no match, anyway, for the English dept. 
So, at any rate, I told Dan Hoyt, and he's been wonderfully supportive, even to the point of saying he thought that U Miss (also in St. Louis) was a better fit for me.  Both he and Sharon met with me today for reviewing The Mill selections.  I have a pretty good idea of what's going to be in (which is a TON of GREAT stuff), and they made me think about some others, most of which I immediately agreed with.  So that's good.

With The Mill, Joanna has been amazing.  She has put in just as much time and effort into it as me, and has just been so supportive of me.  Besides, she is a better editor than I am, and has taught me a lot.  Sharon said today that she thought we worked better as a team than any editors before (is only she knew . . . heh heh heh).

I'm really excited about Danit Brown coming on the 24th of March.  She may be bringing her BABY!!!  I love babies!!  I love The Mill readings!  I'm also totally stoked about The Mill.  It's gonna be great.

P.S.  Our puppy is freakin' huge.
