The proposal for my dream job, due today. After a slightly melodramatic day I sat down to submit. That was the hardest part. You stare at the words final submit on the screen for at least five minutes. You gulp and with all your strength click yes. Then just as you’re about to sigh a breath of relief and say its over, its really over. The computer, as though eager to taunt you, as though hoping you will run from it hands flailing and screaming asks: “ARE YOU SURE??? IF YOU CLICK YES YOU WILL NOT BE ABLE TO EDIT THIS APPLICATION AGAIN!!!” So after approximately fifteen more minutes of staring panic stricken at these words, you gulp. you click. and let the waiting game fun begin.
PS: Ali and Aamir, thank you much for the wishlist gifts! Its a trippy feeling to get an Amazon package on your doorstep when you know you did not buy anything! 🙂 From your quite random assortment, Captain Underpants will be my book of choice tonight as I try to think of something other than this job, and actually get some rest.
