Me & My Muse – Day 232: The Wait Begins

I hate waiting rooms.  You’re corralled into a tiny room with a few piles of magazines.  Everyone is called,  when it is their turn.

And from there, it can actually get worse.  After waiting for so long, this scenario can happen.  You’re taken into another room, where you are told to wait for the doctor.  Five minutes may pass.  Or 10, or 15 or 20.  Finally, you start to wonder if they have completely forgot about you.  All they did was take you out of the larger waiting room and put you into a smaller one.  After they finally come in, they apologize for “making you wait for so long”.

Now I may not be waiting at a doctor’s appointment.  But the concept is the same.  I had the interview at Kelly Services yesterday.  From there, my resume gets sent to the Midland Daily News, where only two will be selected for an interview.  I hope that one of them is mine.  I will know soon enough, after I am contacted within “three to four business days”.  That almost sounds like a delivery estimate for a package.


Muse:  Good things come to those who wait.

I’ve heard that saying before.

Muse:  I know, but it definitely is a true saying.  Just wait, and see what happens.

I just hope that something good comes out of this.  I have been set up for disappointment way too many times.

Muse:  And maybe this might be the one time where there is no disappointment.  Don’t worry about what happens from here.  As you already said in the car after the interview: “It’s all in his hands”.

I know.  A door’s got to open sooner or later, right?

Muse:  It will.  Your very own door.  He has gone ahead to prepare it for you.  Don’t you worry.

I now need to get ready for the next meeting.  I have one at two, so if you would excuse me….

Muse:  Not a problem.  I need to get ready myself….Too much reading.  I lost track of time!


As I said before in the title, the wait begins.  And hopefully, this wait will not be a long one.

Today’s high is going to be 21 degrees and the silver lining will be making more progress at today’s meeting.

To those of you who are tired of waiting,  I hope that you all have a fantastic day.


Muse:  Waiting is a test of patience.  Don’t you forget that!  Now it’s time for my shower….
