So, I awoke around 2:30 this morning. I tossed and turned for about half an hour, hoping to return to sleep.
Yah, not gonna happen.
I just have too much on my mind. On Monday morning, I have to walk a resume into a doctor’s office in the next town over. Early afternoon, I have an interview in Seattle (I HATE driving in Seattle). So, not only am I worried about the interview, I’m also concerned with the drive to Seattle and finding parking.
And then on Friday, I have the interview which is really stressing me out. I live just a few blocks from the local school district’s central office. I would LOVE to work there, for so many reasons, so I have applied for every job for which I might be qualified. A couple of days ago, I got a hit from one of those applications and I have “a short getting-to-know-you” interview scheduled for Friday. Huh?
They aren’t going to ask about my qualifications, but they’re going to see if my personality would be a good fit for their organization. Actually, that’s the part that stresses me out the least – I have a great personality (at least in my professional life), And yet, I’m still stressed about it because working at that school district would be my first choice, so I really don’t want to mess this up.
And then there’s the fact that if I’m offered both jobs, I would be offered the Monday job first (those wheels turn faster than the school district wheels). Do I take the Monday job (if offered) because “A bird in the hand is worth two in the bush” (with which I absolutely don’t agree) or do I say “No, thank you” in hopes that I’m possibly offered the school district job?
So, I’m wide awake at 3:00. What do I do? I grab my computer to work on my NaNoWriMo book a little bit more. I mean, what else is there to do, right?
That’s not normal, is it?
