This is a place for hope.

I am delightful company!
Once upon a time this writer was a reporter/photographer and columnist for a large weekly newspaper in New York City, worked at the Center for Publishing at N.Y.U., worked at Kirkus for one whirlwind semester and eventually was an editor at Scholastic. After two very eventful years on cable television in New York City, this writer was voted off the island. Today this writer is a student and soon-to-be published author (all fingers and toes are crossed) living in reduced circumstances. She is ever hopeful and even though her stomach may rumble from time to time, she is usually somewhat reasonably well fed. Most importantly this writer is a recovering or former New Yorker, (recovering seems more apt), who is quite happily transplanted elsewhere. She blooms where she is planted. ************************ You can contact me at diaryofahopefulstarvingstudent@ gmail.com

And Eating It Too

Rate: 11 Flag

This is how it starts.  Hope is dreaming of corn fields, a quaint farm house, and writing.  Mostly the writing.

Hope is singing along with the radio and hoping.  When most people would have given up a long time ago, Hope remains hopeful.  Hopeful until the end.

Hope is the Bachelorette of admissions candidates.  Everyone wants her.  Everyone says yes, yes, yes.  She is courted by many and at long last Hope has narrowed the list down to the final two.

Hope takes stock of the financial aid awards from both.  Like the proposals at the final rose ceremony.  There are two serious offers for Hope. 

They both want her.  Hope knows who she wants, but what they are offering  makes her hesitate.  One is offering much more than the other.  But that one is not The One.

What am I going to do?

Sometimes the best thing to do is just turn up the music and dance.

Hope dances and her smile seems brighter than the sun.
