Chocolate Sessions

I ate chocolate yesterday and today.

Yes, this means something. Because I eat chocolate to 1) celebrate, or 2) ...whatever the opposite of celebrate is. Basically, this all adds up to: good news and bad news.

Bad news first. AKA, Chocolate Session #1: A rejection on a full request. A form rejection to a full request. From one of my dream agents. Le many sighs. I've been waiting and waiting and waiting and, yes, expecting every unknown number on my phone to be an offer of representation. But it's not to be. However, I am still alive. And I think this is worth noting. I now know that I can handle rejection of this magnitude. {With chocolate.}

Good news! Chocolate Session #2: I GOT MY DRIVER'S LICENSE TODAY! Passed the test with what amounts to a B-, which I'm sure is a lot worse than what my brother will get in a few years, but it doesn't matter, I am FREE TO DRIVE! I am almost five years late, but I have my driver's license! {The license journey has been long and arduous. And I blogged about it.}

Either way you look at it, I got chocolate out of the deal. And that rocked.

Congrats on the driver's license!! :D :D I remember that being a huge day for me (because, honestly, I didn't think I would pass. I accidentally hit a curb while making a right turn, but the instructor let it go. Better than my high school classmate who ran a stop sign during her test though!)

But again, I'm sorry to hear about the R. And it was a form rejection! That's not right. :( Glad you treated yourself to chocolate, dear.
