(cont'd) I was able to infuse the pain from that experience into my application for CSSSA, and wouldn't you know it, I made the cut. I'm sorry that you had to go through the same thing that I did. I wouldn't wish it on anyone. But as cliche as it sounds, you'll never know happiness until you know sorrow. You seem like an awesome person and I know that you can turn this negative into something fantastic. C: You don't know me at all, but I'm here if you want to talk!

Wow that’s really tough. I’m happy you got in this year though!

Honestly, this is the first time I’ve ever been rejected from something when it comes to art or anything for that matter. I had my application in mind since last March, and this was something I’ve wanted more than anything in my entire life, so it’s incredibly, incredibly painful. It’s even worse since I made some good friends beforehand that will be going as well and I’ll be missing out.

I feel like I maybe had my head up a little too high because I seriously thought I had it in the bag what with everyone saying I was gonna totally get in. Hearing everyone’s excitement for it makes me really happy for them but I’m also just really upset I won’t be sharing memories this summer.

Your story encourages me though and I’m determined to get in next year along with CalARTs, congrats, and thank you so much! , ,
