And the Universe said, Ha! The light at the end of the tunnel is, in fact, a train after all. The best laid plans of mice and men, and college students, et cetera, oft go BOOM. Just because things looked like they were working out, doesn't mean they are. You followed the treasure map, turned the final corner, and stepped into an Escher print gone mad.

And the Universe said, Muahaha. Deal with it, mortal. That's your job.

Note: This node was created when I had just found out that I had not been admitted to Berkeley for grad school. A week or so later, I received my letter of acceptance from Stanford. Maybe I should node up "And the Universe said, Teehee! Gotcha!"...
