I submitted my first article as a sole author tonight to a journal. I'm sure it'll come back with tons of comments, but I've been working on this for a month now and I need to let it go and just trust myself and the process. So I sent it.

I'm visiting the program I'm planning on attending and all of the current students and faculty are incredibly nice and welcoming.

I just gave a panel today. I was not satisfied with my performance and relevance at the panel but I was invited to it, so I decided to take part in it. I don't know if what I said touched the crowd who was present. Out of the three panelists, I received zero questions. (I hate when that happens, and it happens to me very often). While I was telling the entire story to my mom, asking myself if I should do panels again, I received an email that I won an award for which someone has nominated me, for my overall community engagement. I don't do panels for that, but it kinda reassured me even if I still feel anxious about this panel.

I was really productive today! I really enjoy academic writing (for real!) It's the best anti-depressant ever,

On top of that, I learned to day that although I did not make the cut amongst the 25 finalists for a contest, the jury gave me an "honorary mention" and I will get 1000$ as well. So surprised but yay!

Just found this forum. Kind of curious, but since I've been really excited about the "road trip" when I relocate for grad school, I wanted to know if anyone had recommendations for fun stops between the southeast and northwest US. First time leaving the eastern seaboard to pursue what I love. ❤️

Today, I submitted another article (this time, one that I have been working on with multiple authors) to a journal. Fingers crossed!

Although I have lost hope entirely on finding a romantic partner (and not because of my age, but rather because of the life choices I have made), today was a good day because I did not cry once. 

*e-hugs* Right there with you, but 31.  Cry at least once a week. And for Indian girls in my situation, the stigma is real.  People assume that you're "defective".

 I’ve just been accepted to the Woodenfish Summer 2019 Humanistic Buddhist Monastic Life Program in China!

I visited one of the programs that accepted me yesterday, and I feel much more excited about it! It's at a university that has a reputation as a commuter school, but the MFA program seems to have a really strong community. Two of the students there invited me for coffee afterwards, and they were so nice and helpful. After hearing their thoughts about the program, it's a much better fit for me than I realized. I don't know if I have funding yet, but they told me my odds were good. Keeping my fingers crossed!
