You know the old saying about patience is a virtue, blah, blah, blah pretty face. That might explain why I don't have a pretty face, mine is more deer in headlights.
I had made a couple of follow-up email inquiries to some people and didn't hear back. I was crushed, I thought, oh great, I'll never hear back again. Imagine my surprise when I did get a response. Unfortunately, it wasn't what I wanted to hear, but it wasn't a no at least. Which means I need to learn some patience when I contact people. Like most everyone else though, I feel that as soon as I send an email, the recipient should respond immediately.
