On waiting…impatiently.

by Melissa on August 14, 2013

I need to listen to this more often:

Go for it.

I’m impatient, too, so basically, I’m a mess. I can’t wait, but I wait too long. Haha. I’m waiting on a response from the grad school I’m dying to get into – their curriculum makes me drool, and I have no problem admitting that I geek out over school. The smell of a book. Shopping for supplies. I’m sure it’s a mix of my love of science, reading, and learning and the nostalgia of how much I loved school shopping when I was little. Lucky for me, I have two little ones in school this year, and I can geek out with them when they shop. ;)

So here I am, waiting…in limbo. I wanted the decision to come the day before I submitted the application, of course, but I also want them to take the time to see what I have to offer. Good things come to those who wait? Whoever said that wasn’t waiting for anything spectacular. ;) I’ve been checking the status of the application more than once a day, and I finally dreamed about it last night. You know what happened? They wrote me and said they’d be pleased to inform me of their decision, but that it’d require a $100 payment for the application fee first.

Of course. Why wouldn’t I have to? Haha.

So here I am…having gone for what I want…impatiently waiting while the ball is in their court.

With that said, I’ve held this blog o’ mine in limbo for too long now. I’m a planner, and without planning certain things in my life, I’m a chaotic mess. I’m terrible at time management if I don’t have a plan. So I have two plans for this fall, and I just need to know which one to go with. I’m part Type A and part Type B. The Type A in me is going nuts right now. What I want to do more here on this blog is share more of what I love: photography, nutrition, recipes, running, and more. I’ve got a lot to talk about, and I’ve been holding off. I’m just going to have to learn to let go a little and just go for it instead of waiting around for one thing to plan my life. I’m working on being more present…just living life and not letting the Type A mess take over too often. ;)

In between goals

QOTD: Are you as terrible at being patient as I am? For you Type A’ers, how do you plan around such a big waiting game?
