Hurrah

I finally heard back on an article I submitted over six months ago to a Very Good Journal! It was accepted - with very positive feedback. Just some minor revisions.

This is so exciting because this was, I felt, a very audacious piece. It was the one where I made a scandalous juxtaposition - of "haiku" and "chemical engineering." I thought it could be laughed off the table. But no - it is, instead, being called by a referee "a fascinating and important essay!"

Yay!

In other news, I have a friend coming with me to my appointment tomorrow. This is a good thing.

Thoughts are with you for the appointment tomorrow.

Meanwhile, revel in your forthcomingitude, girl!

Yay you! Anyone who can put haiku and chemical engineering together and make them fascinating totally kicks ass in my book! Congrats!

Good luck tomorrow. It's really great that you have a friend going along with you. I'll be sending good vibes your way...

Good luck tomorrow.

Long time lurker, first time commenter here: I am thinking nothing but the very best for your appointment tomorrow. I am so glad that you will have a friend with you.

And hearty congrats on the paper! It takes such effort to get to publication but it's such a very happy place to be once all of the work is done. :))
