Just tell me. Clue me in. Whisper it in my ear. Good, Bad, I don’t care, just don’t make me wait.
Interviews are the worst, but what’s even worse than interviews?! The waiting. Waiting to hear the reply. All thoughts encircle your mind, “Did I get it?” “Why is it taking so long to hear back?” “What’s the issue?”
Well, sometimes you need to play the waiting game with some of these companies. Most companies are busy throughout the day & they simply don’t have time to get back to you right away. Yes, I get that, but it’s still painful. When Friday rolls around, you won’t hear their reply until Monday. Therefore, you must endure two more days waiting for that reply, which may or may not come. Some places don’t even tell you! That’s the other terrible part. You’re using up your time thinking about the job when in reality, you didn’t get it and won’t get an email back.
But, even if I didn’t get it, please spare me, just tell me. I’d like to know either way. I don’t want to think about it anymore. I either obtained the job or didn’t, simple as that.
I feel like I’m going crazy, berserk, insane. Ew. How gross & nasty. Can you be anymore desperate? Nope. I think I’ve hit the point where I just look stupid & annoying. I know. I know. I can’t help it. I must STOP and just be PATIENT.
Just wait, wait, wait, wait, wait. I repeat this word over & over in my mind. Maybe I’ll actually listen to myself this time. Who knows.
If I get it, I get it. That’s my attitude. Whatever. It’s okay. I have a Plan B. There always must be another plan. Just don’t think about it. Enjoy yourself! Have fun. Be free. Be fun. Be confident. Be cool, calm, collected. Okay.
I must remain optimistic. Don’t send anymore emails. Don’t contact! That’s all. That’s all, folks! Sorry.
Have some patience.
