No RA/RM Job

Tomorrow, I go home for Easter. That’s exciting. I always love going home. I just really hope the weather is halfway decent, because if it’s not, I won’t have a ride. My mom said that she’s not picking me up if the weather is like it was today. Can you believe this weather? It’s snowing, and it’s freezing cold in April. That’s just a little ridiculous in my opinion.

Well, I didn’t have the best day yesterday. Firstly, I was really sick. My head felt like it was pounding on my skull, I was really dizzy, I felt like I was going to pass out and my throat was irritated for some reason. On top of that, it was Monday, April 6, meaning I found out whether or not I am an RA or RM next year, and as it turns out, I’m not. It came as a major shock to me.

I wasn’t shocked, because I’m simply so conceited that I wouldn’t expect to be rejected. I was shocked, because I thought my chances were good. I figured that if I didn’t get the RM job at Johnson (which is what I wanted primarily), I’d at least get an RA job somewhere. I was told that there were approximately 130 students applying, and they were accepting approximately seventy, so I really thought that I had a good chance. I was not expecting to receive a rejection letter, so that really threw my day even more off balance than it already was. I was very upset and disappointed.

Well, let’s hope that this snow goes away soon. This is April. Like I said, this is just a tad bit ridiculous.
