I woke up this morning after two consecutive nights of fantastic sleep and felt like a flip switched in my brain. Onward and upward, my morning mood seemed to say—and thank god for that!
I suppose the Albizzia Rx tincture from my acupuncturist (prescribed during grad school for anxiety and obsessive thinking) helped out some too, as I took a dose of it two days ago. That said, under two weeks of moping/bitching/over-thinking isn’t too terribly bad for being disappointed in a friendship that didn’t turn out to be more.
It must have also helped that I walked about 25 miles this week around the craft school on various back roads and loops, taking care of my friend’s dog. Walking does wonders for the body and spirit and I hope I never forget this.
In the spirit of progress, here are some stats:
I was selected as an Artist-in-Residence for the Western Art Agencies of North Carolina (that panel I interviewed with last week) for the 2009-2010 school year.
I received 2 rejections, 1 we’re still thinking, and 1 acceptance this week.
In addition to those, I have 7 submissions or queries out there, and 7 major job, residency, fellowship, or grant applications out there as well.
I am currently working on 4 arts essays for publication.
