Personal Quote: "Human salvation lies in the hands of the creatively maladjusted." -- Martin Luther King
First, a little background information. My college hosts a student-run literature magazine called Shadows of Birds, which accepts both poetry and works of short fiction from the student body. Each semester they publish three collections drawn from this content, and the competition can be pretty fierce; I had been submitting for the last year or so and never made the cut. woe emote However, for the final issue of 2014 they decided to switch things up somewhat; instead of publishing electronically, they debuted their first-ever print edition. To celebrate, they rented out the entire on-site Freyberger Art Gallery for the evening, and invited all students and faculty to hear the issue's chosen authors recite their work.

Less than 48 hours before the event, I checked my e-mail for the first time in a week...and saw I was one of the featured contributors. :faint:

Sweet jumping John Jacob Jingle-Heimer Jehoshaphats, it felt like Christmas came early. It's not a major publication, and it's not for profit (the magazine is free), and it's only 3 lyrics, but screw it, it's finally happened! :excited: I can only hope this emotional high lasts long enough to cover the slough of rejection letters I'll probably get out of college.

Welp, back to bouncing off the walls!
