I heard from exchange on Tuesday
Okay. Okay. I won’t get excited unless I’ve met the condition requirements, which I’m thinking I will meet. I should meet it. I will… unless one of my professors decide to be really unforgiving, which I am surely hoping they won’t.
Okay, so I didn’t end up applying to TaLK. Pfft.
But I did apply for exchange!! Finished my application earlier than the deadline and the interviews are expected to be held in February *_*. I wish it would have been earlier though.
Other than that… the other night I randomly found myself on international language exchange webpages that a lot of Korean universities have. It’s not like it was my first time seeing the info, but strangely that time it just felt a lot more attractive and real to me. Then all of a sudden I started actually considering it and now… I’m thinking of applying to them in April. LOL~~
I checked my email this afternoon, and this is what I found:
We regret to inform you that your application was not selected by the Teach and Learn in Korea (TaLK) Program as it was not competitive with the rest of the applicant pool.
Sigh. Yes. A rejection letter. *insert sad face*.. no, more like *disappointed face*. =/
I had this feeling that I wasn’t going to get in since weeks ago… but having had a history of pessimistic thoughts, I figured you know… there was a chance! Actually, I still feel like maybe they’ll change their minds and maybe put me on the waiting list or something. But that is pathetic thinking, so I’ll stop.
I’ve been feeling a -little- bit anxious/nervous for this lately. Not too much. Just a little.
Been trying to keep my excitement and hopes contained in case of disappointing results, but it’s so difficult!! There are so many things that would sort themselves out if this worked out for me. I remember the month I was preparing/applying I couldn’t stop dreaming about it and feeling giddy about it at random points during the day. I’d imagine all the things I would do — all the things I COULD do… and I’d just feel… bliss.
Dear TaLK Applicant:
Thank you for the time and effort you have invested in applying for the TaLK Program.
This email has been sent to inform you that your application is still under review.
Seoul TaLK Office
Sigh, when I saw this email’s preview, I got so nervous in a millisecond. Kind of reminded me how much I’m riding on the hopes of this thing… sigh, please let me in. I’ve used my 11:11s and other wishes on this.
