Permaculture Internship Application

After a lot of deliberation and thought, I finally mailed in my application for the Bullock Homestead internship yesterday.  Many thanks to my friend Will who reviewed/edited my application for me, your thoughts and insight were very helpful.

Now that the application is out of my hands, I'm very nervous.  6-7 months of my life next year rest on a decision that will be made from 7 pages of paper.  I don't remember being this nervous about applying to colleges, but maybe that means this is more meaningful to me.

I will find out if I am selected for an interview on Nov 6th.  If I am selected, I will have to interview sometime between November 7th-29th.  Then on Dec. 7th I find out if I am selected for the program or on the waiting list.  If you are reading this, please keep your fingers crossed for me.

I also find out anytime between now and the end of November if I am selected for an internship with the Earthship community.  While I will be disappointed if I don't get it, I'm not going to be as disappointed, because once I have my land I still won't be able to afford to build an earthship on it for another 5 years or so.  I can't always keep applying year after year until they select me, but I would like to take a permaculture internship as soon as possible.  If everything works out perfectly, I'll get both, and will be blogging from Taos, NM next March, then Orcas Island, WA from Apr until Nov.  One can only hope!
