Sometimes I Just Give Up...

Received this morning from the guild newsletter:

"The Mason Charitable Trust Scholarship in Design submissions are officially due in by the end of the month. Somehow this was not clearly advertized in the magazine, and we have decided to give our members an extra month to get their application in. Anyone who has applied before and was unsuccesful, can apply again. If you intend to make use of this extension or have any questions about the submission please contact me."

It was not only very clear when the deadline was, but it's the same day, 31 October, for every application round. I must have been the only one that applied, eh, and they need other recipients, provided they hadn't already decided this year. There's a parcel waiting for me at the post office today; we went to the PO too late yesterday. What are the chances that's my returned application pack, which I sent in late with their permission for a one week extension, making my due, yesterday? But I'm trying not to go there. I'm really not going there.

I've been feeling good about not having any more deadlines and looking forward to tackle my behind-due-date projects, after an unusually brief post-installation-down period. I was thinking the down came early with the scholarship fiasco, and by the time I got that sent and the scarves hung I was on the amend. But it appears they just can't stop adding insult to injury, and I think it's a sign, even for this thick head, the Universe is telling me to quit the guild system altogether.

I had some uplifting thoughts this week. I even went to the gym 3 times this week. It's time for me to move on.

Oh, and Dear Mabel keeps threatening me she's going to sell www.MegWeaves.com to someone else. Good grief.

  2. I've been thinking a lot about it. Perhaps too much. I may need to learn how to do as you do...
