After a long, frustrating, non-productive, upsetting week in the world WITHOUT, I finally got more than four hours sleep last night – after I submitted my DMP revision and fighting off sleep during my reading of MK2.
I awoke to a phone call to calm another ongoing storm, took care of that, and see that today we have my favorite weather – overcast, cool, and drizzly! I know, Seattle, I would get bored with it after awhile, but this is a treat out here on the dusty plains of Kansas!
I am pleased with the progress I’ve made WITHIN this week – I carry a daily schedule I typed up that has all of my tasks for every day, so I don’t forget a read or a task. I stayed with the Monday webbie even though I was dog-tired, I read and commented on five to seven other blogs, I started reading ALOUD – which I didn’t do at all last week, because I felt stupid doing it, and found that after a very short time, my voice became louder, then the inflection and enthusiasm just bubbled out naturally! What a surprise that was! AND I didn’t feel stupid! YAY! I’m pleased that my discipline for doing all the requirements is getting better and I’m able to get most everything done.
So, I open my email to see a reminder to do the webbie survey from last Sunday – the questions look familiar – I’m sure I did it right after the webbie, but I want to be sure I don’t lose my scholarship, so I look in my “sent” folder. Not there. . .but neither is a bunch of other stuff, so maybe my email program doesn’t save things like that. I go to my MKMMA workbook, because I check off tasks there as well, so I will have written down that I did the survey.
BAM! Under Tangible Requirement: 1. b. INCLUDE YOUR PPNS AT THE TOP. (crap). I did the rest – wove them into my revision, used dates, feelings, present tense, didn’t go over 400 words- did all of that but forgot two words at the top – the PPNs. I put them in and resent, and now I await my fate. I will continue this journey until I find out if two words dashed my scholarship. If they did, I’m grateful for the two weeks. Just this much has already changed me and I’m hoping for some grace to be able to continue.
