Well, good news! I finally heard from the place I applied to, and I got accepted!
Hmm...it's been more than two months since I started this NAP. Technically I'm supposed to keep this up until I reach the goal I've set. Ideally this should only take 2-3 months, though I guess it could take longer. I haven't been giving this much thought or asked where my money is. That's part of the beauty of NAPs; most of the work is done at night when you're unconscious. I really like this method, so I'll stay with it, for now. :)
