I feel sick...

I am about to take my clinical psychology training application to the post office.

I feel sick as a parrot, want to vomit and I am shaking like a leaf.

I managed to find a glaring typo this morning after I had printed the darn thing 5 times. Amazing, having read it some thousand times myself, had my spelling & grammar guru of a dad, my partner, a professional proof reader and God knows how many 'I'll read your's if you'll read mine' deals with other applicants.

PANIC PANIC PANIC PANIC.

I am told this is normal. Another applicant I know off queued at the postoffice, only to get to the desk and decide she had to proof read it just one more time. So, she grabbed it back again, apologised profusely, amidst many stares, glares and giggles from the rest of the staff and queue. She read it, joined the queue again and there was much raucous from the post office staff...I will not do this. I promise myself, I will not do this.

But I can't have it sitting on my desk for a minute longer - so I am off to the post office. Wish me luck! Now to look forward to the dread of interviews or the dreadful melancholy of rejection. As you can see, its happy happy joy joy all the way with me today.

PS. Happy Thanksgiving to my American friends for this weekend.

PPS. I have a new guestmap, please stick your pin in it :)

Indeed - I was craving marmite on toast the other day and telling partner dude that I was clearly pregnant...he remains unconvinced tho...

Rach said...

Mum had a dream last week that I was pregnant and is worried it might be prophetic..

HA HA HA!!!

You could play on that you know ;P

Rach said...

Yeah! If I wanted a natural death for my parents that I induced I could announce I was pregnant..

'Though, in the dream mum said she was very accepting... and allowed the baby and I to live in the playhouse/shed in the back garden..
