One of my professors emailed me to let me know she would like to nominate me for an award at school. "Distinguished student" - whatever that means. The whole idea makes me very nervous... I don't really know if I'm the person to nominate. But anyway. Whatever anxieties I have about it are trumped by the fact that the winner gets $1500.
So I basically responded to the teacher to thank her, outlining my concerns, and asked her if she really thought I should be nominated.
There is probably someone much more deserving than me.. I see single moms who are working full-time while taking classes. They have a bigger load to carry than me.
But it was still nice to have the professor think of me. And also, the $1500 would be really pretty awesome. (Hi, Nikon 28-70 f2.8, how are you?)
