I got a wonderful night of sleep last night, and today I felt very awake. The upside of being awake was that I got a ton of work done. The downside of being awake was that I had a lot of energy with which to fuel my worries about job stuff. Here's the thing: I am not a patient person. Anyone who has ever spent time with me when I am waiting for important news, or medical test results can confirm that. I would like to be more patient -- I really would. Unimportant waiting (waiting in line, waiting in traffic, etc...) doesn't really bother me at all. But I find waiting nearly intolerable when it comes to important things. After almost 10 hours of sleep last night, I was wide awake today. Maybe it was that extra energy, but for whatever reason, today, nearly 3 months after I submitted my job applications, I ran out of patience and started to stress. It's not as though I have my heart set on any particular outcome. In all honesty, any of the possible outcomes would be fine. I just want to know. I am going to take a few deep breaths and try to put it out of my mind again. I managed to do that with reasonable success for three months. A few more weeks can't be that hard... right?
