I'd hate to be a giraffe with a sore throat- Mitch Hedberg
I'm trying to follow Mitch's lead and retain perspective as stress levels rise bringing all the accompanying symptoms. (I know, my stress is nothing compared to others: 1, 2. 3. perspective is key) Current stressors: Exams, bar apps, Thanksgiving weekend and underlying it all- dream job anxiety. When the phone rings, even at 9pm, I wonder: Is it them? (Lawyers work late hours, so it could be right?) I know if its meant to be, it will but- I really want it to be. Looking through my archives I came across this where I talked about what kept me going during a tough teaching year. Its what dream job would let me do. Proof that I wasn't bluffing when I told the interviewers that this is something I've always wanted. Is there anything nerdier than having "job angst"? I am a broken hearted teenager staring at the phone wondering if Bobby will call and ask me to be his date for homecoming. (Except I never was a broken hearted teenager waiting for Bobby to ask me to homecoming) Still- it could be worse, I could be a giraffe- with a sore throat.
