The reason why–in the midst of scrambling for meaning in To the Lighthouse, scrambling to find a job, and scrambling for enough sleep to get me (upright) through the next day–I keep plodding on, is because amazing things seem to keep happening, despite my frazzled mental state.
I am receiving three awards from the University of Minnesota, Morris:
Outstanding English Major
Curtis H. Larson (which means I’ll be my class’s student commencement speaker)
Allen W. Edson (for total contribution to campus life)
I’m humbled and excited and so, so happy that the school I adore seems to love me back.
