Too happy to stay awake

Waking up doesn't seem to be taking this morning, so it won't last. Yesterday brought news that I've been shortlisted for the job in Berl1n I wrote about a few weeks ago that was just so, so me. I was so excited I could hardly sit through the rest of the day, and my body, unaccustomed to such good and validating news, was exhausted by nightfall. Yesterday I decided to indulge myself fully in dreaming about it; started looking at apartments, looked at the tefl.com cost of living guide, tried to work out what the right neighborhoods to live in would be, being sad the cute mayor is gay.

Mostly I just enjoyed feeling validated by the thought the first place I applied to on this blitz is taking me semi-seriously. Right now I'm pursuing a policy of only applying to jobs I really really want alot, so - well, it makes me feel good. But now I'm still sleepy. And when I wake up, I'm just going to try to forget about it and keep applying for other jobs I want.

Oh that mayor is cute! A great, strong jawline...that is such awesome news Mistress about being shortlisted. You should be very proud! You deserve it of course. Keep us updated what comes of it...

You're so sweet, Mel!

Well, I don't know what the job is exactly, but I know you and I'm sure you applied to something that you felt confident and capable of doing!

It's a researchy writey type job with an international organization with a super-hero type mandate.

"An international organization with a super-hero type mandate". That sounds pretty good to me! We could use some more of that these days..

Sigh... there are few jobs I'd actually want and even fewer for which I'm qualified. I interviewed for a sweet editorial position at a magazine just over a week ago - at very short notice - but I've heard nothing back, although I'm still being commissioned to write articles and reviews for them. I'm enormously grateful for the freelance work, but given the circumstances it feels weird. Ah well. I wish you all the best in your applications, and I ain't talking sanitary manoeuvres.

I think so too, Mel; it's an international @nti-c0rruption organisation.

You too, Mess; it does feel a bit rough when there are so many lousy jobs out there, so few sweet ones by extension, and so many people wanting the sweet ones. But you write nice-like and that will pay off.
