Two more days to go. Tomorrow I have two exams and a major assignment due, Friday isn't much better. After that we are done for the year. I am hoping to land a summer internship within the industry somewhere, I should have an answer to this, hopefully by the end of Friday.
I have only been able to check the mail once this week, there was another rejection from Apple, this is the third time they have told me, thanks, but no thanks. I am wondering if my letter is stuck in their system or something?
In the meantime Thank You Devin. I found the follwoing in my inbox this afternoon,
"This idea is fascinating to me. Not only are you doing
something innovative, it's also compelling to hear
your story, and to see all the mundane corporate
responses you're getting. Essentially it's true what
was said... "That will never work." That is, without
your website. With the kind of attention that your
website is attracting, I'm willing to bet that
companies will begin to sponsor you just for the
relatively inexpensive advertising that they'll get by
being a focal point on your blog.
Keep it up Shawn, I'm a college student too. I work
full time and go to school full time. It's hard, thats
for sure! I believe there's nothing more valuable than
to be well educated. You're working toward something
more important than any monetary restraint.
Also, I sent you $10. Not much but I'm sure every
little bit counts... Good Luck!"
Thanks again Devin.
In the meantime, if you (yes,you!) could mention my site to your boss / on any message boards or myspace pages you post on it would be greatly appreciated.
