Bad news

Got a piece of sad news from the school. My IPRS application isn’t looking too bright at all.  Surprised I’m not even that super sad right now. I know I’ve done EVERYTHING in my power to make it happen. I responded to the nagging voice inside me and fought for what I truly wanted. So what if I did get an email confirming my failure tomorrow? I gave my best but my best wasn’t good enough. That means someone deserved it more than me. I lost in a fair battle. I have nothing to regret.

Despite this major setback, I still have hope. I can still make it work, one way or another. All roads lead to Rome even if one is more turbulent than the other.
