That’s just my luck. Honestly ..
I’ve been busting my butt all month trying to create enough variety of things and set up posts on here for the design team call I wrote about at the beginning of the month. When I looked at the original post, I swear I thought it said the applications were due by February 28th. So I kept working on stuff up until today. And then after work, I rushed home to put my application in because I didn’t want to forget it on Wednesday …
Well, I’m apparently an idiot who can’t read. All of that work and the time I spent making sure my application was right .. and it’s all for nothing. The applications were due on the 23rd, not the 28th .. so I missed the deadline entirely.
I’ve been sitting here crying for the last twenty minutes because this was something I was trying really hard to get a chance to do. I know my stuff isn’t all that great but I love doing it and I want to get better at it. But a deadline is a deadline and I screwed up.
I want to thank everybody who looked at my posts over the last few weeks. I know it’s not what I usually write on here. And, well, maybe there’s a reason for that. Ugh.
Depression is a bitch, by the way. I feel like a complete moron right now and I’m gonna spend the rest of the night beating myself up over a mistake. It just meant so much to me and I didn’t even really get a chance cause of it.
Okay .. enough whining. Guess there’s always next time. I’ll just have to read things more carefully and try to keep my head up.
