Award Update

The guy who DID win has been teaching at the school since the year I was born (or so), and has a list of accomplishments a mile long.

I did NOT win, unfortunately, but am not too upset, now that it's all done with.  The anxiety was much worse than the result, and the competition, I see now, was stiff.  In fact, I'm not sure how I even got nominated.  I was so worried that not winning would be seen as some sort of statement about my choice of calling, or my abilities, or something.  Lesson:  I was only one of three people in the room who knew I got nominated, and so I'm the one who was making statements.  In my head.

Love when I get myself all fired up.


  1. Of course you already know this, but I'm telling you again anyway, for whatever it's were hands down the best professor I had all 4 years of college. No contest.
    That's all I wanted to say. :)

  2. Aw.

    I blush once, for the extreme loveliness and generosity of this comment, and again, for being so self-absorbed with this post :). Thanks for putting up with me. The feelings are mutual!
