Rejection Letter # 18

bya Gabrielle at 8:15 PM

Rejections suck.  Rejections on Fridays suck worse.  Rejections on Fridays after finding out you don’t have enough debt to get a loan is the worst.  Yep, you read that right.  We don’t have enough debt to qualify for a home loan.  Excellent credit, excellent history, but not enough debt.  I don’t know how that is even possible.  The American Dream is exactly that, a dream.  Maybe getting published one day is a dream, too.  Sorry for the depressing post.  I’m depressed.  And now my Braves are losing and my dog is sick.  I’m just going to go put my head in the sand.  I’ll come back when I feel better.
