The waiting game

I’m not good at being patient. I don’t like surprises. Ergo, I am not good at waiting to hear something back from the interview.

Maybe it didn’t go as well as I thought. Maybe she’s working on negotiating salary. Maybe she’s interviewing more qualified people. Maybe they hated me. Maybe I totally blew it. Maybe she didn’t like my shoes.

This has been running through my head for the last two days. It’s like being on a rollercoaster.

Either way, I don’t like it and I’m not good at it.

For the last two days between 8 and 5 I’ve checked my phone probably 1000 times to see if I missed a call or an email.

I hate this. I told my psychiatrist this morning that it’s like being on pins and needles constantly. She claims that this is actually a good thing – it’s normal behavior and normal reactions. It’s not being driven to outstanding heights by my anxiety. I guess she has a point.

Still though, the waiting is going to kill me.

And to add insult to injury, I have a sinus infection so I’m just kind of all around miserable.

Thank goodness I’m off tomorrow.

  1. Flats, unqualified; loafers, you’re hired! LOL. When I was 18, I had a very short job interview where I was not hired because I wore acid-wash jeans. First, who among us didn’t wear acid-wash jeans in the late 1980s? Secondly, it was a call center ffs. They are always short-staffed! … I hope you get the job!

  2. Ugh, waiting blows, and sinus infections are awful. Not being able to breathe properly and feeling like your face has been hit by a baseball bat on the inside doesn’t do anything to make the time go by more quickly…

    Looking at the last comment, acid-wash was awesome in the ’80s, but it really should have stayed there.
