I got a letter from AmeriCorps the other day
I've been waitlisted
It's better than nothing, I guess
But who wants to sit in the waiting room
When you don't even know if you're going to be called into the office?
30% of wait-listers are asked to serve
Now that's a pretty good amount
But it sure doesn't give me too much hope
If I don't get into the Fall program
I can request to be considered for their winter program instead
If that falls through I guess I'm screwed
What the hell am I going to do then?
Please don't send me back there again
Not now
I don't want to take a loan out for school when I don't have a major
I'd just be bullshitting until I settled for something
Money; the root of all evil and cause of all my stress
Well anyways,
I've got 10 days to get fingerprinted and to fill out and sign all the papers
Then I'm on call
Hopefully they'll call
They better call

Waitlisted? Too bad. But have heart.

Like Reggie Girl, my thoughts and prayers are with you, girl.

You will be a great asset to them. A little birdy will tell them soon, and they will call!

good things come to those who wait... and I'm willing to bet that Americorps is going to call you up dilla!

agree with doetzer, I feel the same way about college. I need to choose a major, but i feel like I'd be just bullshitting myself into choosing something.
