Thank you
Well, firstly let me explain that I have had absolutely /no/ internet for the last week because my mom's apartment complex is going through renovations and due to a serious brainfart on the worker's part they sandblasted our phone/internet line away. We finally got net back up and running but that is why I've been so incommunicado. Didja miss me?

In regards to this whole SCAD nonsense, I wrote my counselor asking for reasons, and instead of him replying I got a reply from the dean of admissions asking me to call her. Its past business hours right now so I'll call them tomorrow and see whats the haps and see what they say. But yanno, in light of all this disappointment even if they were just to say "oh sorry no we just meant NO to THIS particular semester, youre free to come next semester" I'm not even sure if I want to go. This isn't me pulling "i dont wanna go to your nizzasty school anyways, losers", its me reading this as a sign that maybe I should step back and really think, is this the school for me? So, in light of this, since I have my portfolio and letters and everything all ready to go, why not send out apps to other schools while I'm at it, see if I get a few bites, and make a decision from there. If I do end up going to SCAD at least I will have weighed my options.

In regards to the Arizona thing, I am going to be staying at my dad's lakehouse in Havasu City. This is my father's house and he's very gracious and very kind to let me use it, and so I will respect it and keep it clean as per his wishes and not take the offer as a "gimme", but he said I am welcome to have some guests at times as long as I have a job and keep it clean. So, that's whats goin on there. Its a temporary solution until I figure out where to go from here. Key word of course being "temporary".

After I made that last entry, I went to work, pouted, and headed up to Hollywood to my old chum from highschool, murphmongrel's house for some cheering up and yanno, it gave me some time to think things over. I really shouldn't get so bent out of shape cuz I got rejected from a school. Just take it as "there's hundreds of schools out there, does this one /have/ to be it?"

I thank you all for your kind words and asspats. Seriously sometimes you just need a little e-hug and an uplift and for your friends to chime in with the "HOW DAAAAARE THEY" to feel better again, even if its a little childish to feel the need for that, its still justified I think :3 But seriously it meant a lot to see how many comments on the subject I got, I thank you all, I wish I had the time to reply to each and every one of them, but at this point I think I'm just gonna "move forward", not think about it too much, and stay happy.

Big thank yous to: selunca for helping me get in contact with who I needed to get in contact with due to internetlessness, westly_roanoke for reading ALL of my LJ comments to me aloud over the phone for ultimate cheering-upness during my net downtime, silber for his love and support especially since he was the first person I talked to after reading "the letter" and taking the full brunt of my "wtf-ness", rage and sadness (poor you), murphmongrel for giving a wayward pup asspats and a place to crash for a couple of nights ..and of course..all the CostCo pizza I could eat. Love you guys fo realz and for troo

And of course, all of you who commented, big huge e-hugs go out to every one of you for your advice and insight and general support.

As in Lake Havasu City? Speaking as a Tucsonan, Lake Havasu City is on a very short list called "Places That Get Hotter Than Phoenix."

Personally, I don't think checking out the facade of London Bridge is worth being Hotter Than Phoenix.

Well the price is right. Its free for me to live there as long as I follow my dad's terms and conditions.

Plus we have AC and a pool and hell, there's always the lake.

I've spent many a summer there, I know what to expect.

I kinda know how you feel about the whole rejection thing. Just in a different sense. I was rejected from 5 different agencies when I first set out to be a cop. Even the one I worked for since I was 14. So if this is the path you want, the key is to stay focused on your goals, and when you hit a setback, well, FIDO. Keep trying. Eventually you'll score a hit. :)
On a side note, I'll have a new cell number in a couple days because t-mobile caused me major irritation. So I'll shoot ya an e-mail.

Glad you're feeling beter, and have gotten on your feet again for the SCAD thing. Even so, best of luck with whatever the dean wants... although, a word of advice, if you do get in anyway check what kind of business classes the school offers, how much they seem to care about their students making a living after graduating and all that!

Glad to hear things went better. Saw your entry, didn't get a chance to comment. :< Sorry.

Don't have much to say though other than that. I have a bias towards the Art Institutes since that's where I go BD
But things will be clearer once you talk to the person.


I think it's the "Whyyyyyyy?" that always drives me nuts not knowing.

Glad you are feeling a bit better about things.
I think it'd be a good move to send your portfolio etc around for other options. They made you jump through so many hoops and then to tell you no with zero input as to why is just really unprofessional.

I hope the call to the dean will shed some light onto the rejection.
I seriously doubt it was based on talent or potential as you have that in spades.
Have fun in AZ :)

Oh man. Your LJ posts were sorely missed! <3

Glad things worked out. Yes, I am awesome. :P

ja, i was going to call you and leave you a cheery message of sorts, but then i realized a) you only gave it to me for emergencies b)i probably don't even have the right number and c)you would probably only be able to make out "i wuvs you" because of my babbling accent

anyway, i'm glad you've reached the positive end of things so quickly. things should start looking up for such a talent like you.

(btw, kudos for using "wayward pup asspats" in a sentence)
thornwolf From: thornwolf Date: July 7th, 2007 02:39 am (UTC) (Link)
XD wayward pup asspats *titters*

And thanks so much. Honestly now that I think of it I don't think you have the right number. want the new one? I changed it when I moved to ohio, i forget who has it.

And all things considered, this, at the time, felt like an emergency. especially since I couldn't get on LJ to wangst about it properly like the emo little blogger I am
suid_afrika From: suid_afrika Date: July 7th, 2007 03:10 am (UTC) (Link)
yeah that would be awesome, you can send it to my email (s-nashy @ hotmail dot com) if you'd like.

and inner wangst needs to be let out. you can add some venting to the email if it'll make you feel better. because in all honesty i'm queen of sitting and reading and nodding in a wise sort of way and making little m-hmm sounds.

emo bloggers unite. *makes ghetto gestures*

and oh my, ohio is not for lovers. i prefer to ignore said state and pretend that only nice amish families live there.

oh i LOVE havasue City. I used to go there every Summer. Easily one of my favorite lakes.

Best of luck with things.
Got your message about Havasu...well, bring suntan and then stay FAR AWAY from the sun. O_o It's been around 104-110 degrees lately here in Kingman, and Havasu is usually about 10 degrees HOTTER. Welcome to Hell, Baybee! *ahem* Ok, Sorry, but it really is hot and be sure to drink a lot of water when you're here. Once the monsoons hit (which should be soon, I hope) things will cool down a tiny bit- and then you can go plunge into the lake!)
