I'd open my mouth if I had something smart to say.

I didn't get The Scholarship, although the letter invited me to apply again. Which, considering how I have little to no shame, I will probably do just that. I'm a little disappointed, but you know what? I'm glad I applied. You never get anywhere if you don't try.

Thoughts of things to which I'll apply next year: Boren fellowship, Fulbright, French teaching assistantship, teaching English in Russia... if none of that works out, I'll join the Peace Corps. If that doesn't work out, I'll slit my wrists. There! All options covered! (In the mean time I shall continue writing like a motherfucker and hoping that pandering to the Unwashed Masses will $$$pay off$$$ one day.)

Exciting news! Turns out I have a "very solid" A in JINS, so I don't need to revise my papers! This frees up so much time it's not even funny. Plus, I went ahead and did my French Business final today (I watched Marius et Jeannette and created a teaching lesson for it), so I have even less to do next week. How awesome am I? Answer: ridiculously.

good luck with all those fellowships/-ships/etc! at least you've got a pretty exact plan. (and, right, at least you did apply) I was looking into the Peace Corps, and then I saw that they actually reject people, and realized "shit" ha.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm pretty prepared for whatever may come for the first year or two after graduation, but beyond that... I have no clue as to what I'd like to do with my life. It's more than a little frustrating.

From what I've heard, you only get rejected from the Peace Corps if you a) don't fulfill the education/age requirements (which you, undoubtedly, will), and b) if you don't pass any of the medical tests. Sooo... don't let self-doubt bring you down. :P
