I just got a letter from the Australian National University saying that my application for a position in the Graduate Diploma of Science Communication was unsuccessful. This was the first thing I'd put all my effort into since Uni, the course suited me down to the ground, travelling around Australia doing science shows for kids and communities who otherwise couldn't make it to the big cities. I was so psyched about it, I haven't been so excited about anything for a long time and right in the middle of a massive migraine after a week of laryngitis, a chest infection and a head cold I get this bloody letter. I don't apologise if people take offence to the title of my thread and I'll take anyone to task who wants to complain about it. Trust me, in this mood you don't want to be arguing with me. Bugger damn hell.
