I just had a former professor walk in to meet some guests. And when she asked me what my plans were (last time she saw me, I was working in a greasy spoon canteen), I bit my tongue and asked if she would be willing to write a reference letter for me in my quest to get into Ryerson or Sheridan.

She said YES!!! Cut me off midway, in fact. And she said no doubt.

Then I showed her a room and led her to the cookies.


I feel like things are falling into place, and like certain things I once (not so long ago) believed impossible are now very much within reach.

I am sick and tired on one level, and yet over the moon and giddy at the same time.

Okay, I’ve got to get into the school first. But this reference will be invaluable and will have clout.
