happy to be rejected - or how to reap the rewards of a rejection

4. FIAF = $0

For this grant application, I received a very fun comment section full of nuggets of questionable materials from the panelists. The fact that the scratch-card yielded $0 in winning is something I can contend with in comparison to the comments. Pure gold.

3. SFAI = $0

The summer months are really slow with rejection letters. I received this letter from the application round at the end of spring. This may be the first scratch card that I did not win anything. The anticipation of winning as I scratch the numbers is eclipsed by the disappointment of rejection and not winning.
