I got my first ever thank-you letter today from the stanford fund. It's weird being on this end of the process, and being addressed as "Mr. Waldon" by a student earning money for his extra-curricular group. But it's kind of neat, too. In fact, I think I actually had a class once with the person who wrote my letter -- his name sounds really familiar. He would have had to have been a freshman during my last year, but if it was in one of my music history classes or something, it could have happened (he's a music student). I think he was outsourcing his letter writing, though, because the hand writing doesn't look like a guy's. Not that that's anything unusual, of course, it's just amusing to notice. He also made a reference to my "December gift," which was odd, since I thought they weren't supposed to say anything that referred to a particular point in time. Maybe they changed the rules? Oh well. Yay for the tHE sTANFORD fUND.
