The 20th is almost officially over and I still haven't see any announcements for round 2. I know they have a habit of running late but that doesn't make it any easier. Is anyone else compulsively checking the site every hour or two? I can handle rejection. I can't handle waiting.

Err... It's only just now the 20th, unless they're running it from Japan or something. Perhaps you should shake your calendar a bit to make sure it's still working? Tongue

Well now my watch has been lying to me all weekend. I suppose that's what I get for trusting technology 😂 Either that or my treadmill scrambled my brain...always knew that thing was a torture device....

My experience this last year is that when they're on time they're on time - results go out just before midnight. When they're going to be late, they let us know sometime that evening. With 3000+ stories this time around, I'm not holding my breath...

I read in my confirmation email when they received my first round that they would announce it at 11:59 tonight.  I'm telling myself that I won't stay up for it but I'm fairly certain I will!!!

You know that kid at school who tells you they're going to run the whole track, but you know deep down they're only going to get half way? You want them to do it, you really do, and you have every hope that this will be the time they succeed.

But, you can't help but think about last year, when they tripped on their laces in the last fifty metres, or the year before where their training only consisted of eating chocolate bars and watching Usain Bolt videos on Youtube?

Whatever happens to that kid in the race, you still cheer when they eventually make it over the line, don't you?

That's how I like to think of NYC's deadlines. They've got big aims and we all hope they fulfil them. But, deep down, we know they probably wont. That's okay though, because they'll get there in the end and we'll be very happy when they do.
