waiting it out haikus

Recommended Posts

Hey, props for that! Someone else posted somewhere on here that they QUIT smoking due to app stress.

A new day dawning

The sun kisses the skyline

Time to check Gmail

Cruising into work

Swipe in, drop bag, hang up coat

Time to check Gmail

Thirty minutes in

I don't HAVE to work yet, right?

Time to check Gmail

Glorious lunchtime

Microwaving leftovers

Time to check Gmail

It's after lunch now

Blood flows from brain to stomach

Time to check Gmail...

These are Eff-ing awesome.

Wish I had money.

Why did I apply if it's

No funding, no go?

Spent my break crunching,

Applications are no bliss. . .

All that pain for this?

Had dreams, still hoping--

Less idealistic now.

I'll let the chips fall.

sunny out there now

but in my heart March drizzle

continues to fall

advisor-fostered

dreams of grad school seem now but

ill-advised fancies

only one school left

to reject me, after which

i'll adopt a cat

This is a great thread! There's nothing creative about staring into an empty mailbox. Here's my attempt:

six hundred bucks bought

excruciating waiting

should have bought good wine

Waiting and waiting

Every day there is no news

Every day hope fades

I got rejected

By Notre Dame yesterday

At least now I know

Friends and family say

"I know you'll get in somewhere!"

Want to strangle them

At least I found this

Forum of other people

Who can understand

I would write some more

But it's been ten minutes since

I checked email. Bye!
