...for five years in a row, I suppose the lemons eventually have to come.
Yes, this is a metaphor.
And yes, this metaphor is in specific reference to a certain university in Ann Arbor, Michigan.
Sonya Schumann is her name. The person who bested me and accepted the one shining, glorious spot that was available this year. (Very appropriate name for a musician, I do have to say.)
So, what comes next? I am not a person who believes in fate. I am a person who believes in hard work. Hard work. Hard work. Courage. Determination. However, I also know that our lives are directed by a hand greater than our own.
I'll eat these lemons. Because even lemons are good for the health.
