One Thing I Learned Today
I'm good enough, I'm smart enough, and doggonit, people like me
Today I learned that while I'm not good enough for English Lit PhD programs (current tally: four rejections, one waitlist, three silent but expected rejections), I'm definitely too good for this company. I applied for an editorial position just over a week ago, and last Friday they called me in to take an "editor test" to make sure I know basic grammar or something. I scored in the 98th percentile on the test. They scheduled an interview with the editorial team and manager right away, and I had that this morning.

Five minutes ago HR called to make me a verbal offer. Talk about quick.

The universe is trying to tell me something.
