If there’s something you can do…

Whenever I get anxious about something, I always try to tell myself that if there’s something I can do, I should be doing it. If there’s nothing I can do, worrying does absolutely no good. So when I started getting anxious about our applications, I looked for something to do. Although we have talked to everyone about the recommendation forms, we are 1 for 6 in actual completed forms. We also had some supplemental information that I wasn’t sure when we should send. Transcripts, loan recognitions, an essay we had to fill it out as a couple. I’m not sure who our recruiter is yet, but I just really wanted to get the information out of my hands. I was going to wait, but I ended up just sending it to the Chicago recruiting office.

I actually didn’t get the urge to sort all of this out until about midnight, and by the time I finished it was 1:30. I wanted to mail the letter so I wandered through the apartment building in my pajamas to the mailbox. Jeez louise, there must be something to call this kind of anxiousness — maybe Peace Corps Fever! Tim doesn’t have Peace Corps Fever. He’s as excited as I am, but he doesn’t really get feverish about anything. Here’s to hoping it all works out. 

We haven’t been on a trip since San Francisco, so my traveling itch is starting to bug me. Maybe a small roadtrip this weekend would be fun. Packing up the car and taking Emo camping is always fun. We shall see.
