Apologies for not writing a post last month. And this post is going to be fairly short. I’ve discovered I’m not much of a blogger (I should have guessed this because I was never much of a diarist either).
Intramural baseball started up again and I got my first hit last week! Y’all I’m pretty sure I didn’t get one hit last semester. But we were practicing after the week and for some reason my brain thought it was a good idea to catch a ball with my bare hand. Ya know, like in A League of Their Own? Yeah, not very smart. And of course it’s the hand I write with.
The most exciting thing that’s happened these past couple of months is acceptances going out! I can’t believe it’s been a year since I was waitlisted at UVA. I had no idea at the time if I’d be here or not. And here I am! It’s been fun talking with the prospective poetry students. I’ve loved my first year in the program and getting to share my excitement with people who might be my classmates next year is great.
Like I said, this post is short. I’ll be at AWP next week and probably live-tweeting during some of the events on @themfayears. I’ll definitely be blogging about it afterwards. I went to Seattle last year and it was incredibly rewarding. I’m hoping Minneapolis is just as fun. I’m also hoping it’s warm. Hope to see some of you there!
