MANHATTAN, KS -- Mom is doing well. Thanks for your concern and prayers.
i got my first official rejection letter yesterday
At least National Geographic responds to me. I came away from NY with a stack of business cards and a list of magazines that were practically begging us to email them for information about internships. The only response I got was from Esquire, saying they don't do internships. Is that what they mean by the New York attitude, lying to innocent students?* I kinda liked getting my first real rejection letter. You have to be rejected before you find what fits, so I feel like the ball is rolling. (roll, ball, roll!)
*For the record, Esquire was the only magazine that didn't beg us to email them. I did that on my own initiative.
