can we all just agree that near-instant gratification is, um, gratifying?

today i wrote an email to a former professor, asking for a letter of recommendation. this professor is a dear person, but not particularly organized or prompt, most of the time. and busy. very busy.

i was kind of worried that he would never get back to me, but he is one of the two people who i really need to ask. so i sent the message off, and turned to writing to the other professor. and as soon as i finished asking-for-a-letter-of-support message #2, i returned to my inbox to find that only 26 minutes after i sent my initial request, professor #1 had written back! to say yes, of course he'd write the letter!
