on round two

just got word that i've been invited to submit an application to creative capital! woohoo! out of over 2000 applicants, 687 have been invited to submit. it's a big deal. i'm chuffed. really chuffed. some creative capital alums include: kristina wong, daniel alexander jones, and the rude mechanicals. i'm just really honored to make the first cut. i'm hoping to make it through the next. i'm trying to just stay listening to the voice saying, "good job, kt!" and telling that other voice that says, "yeah, but look at all the work you have to do now" to just shut up for a little bit.

good job, kt!
