Well, not really. I find that most men I meet these days are quite nice, so my stare has lost its original coldness.
I was not chosen for the graduate assistant position. I have mixed feelings--relief and regret. I would really like to find a paying job (even min wage in my field/hence regret) however, the responsibilities of the position were really too demanding for a full time student---they wanted me to be on call!!
The search continues.
