They've also asked me to write an aspiration statement to help the staff know a bit more about me. I've been working on it - but something is holding me back. I feel like once I'm done with this essay . . . and I turn it in to the office . . . I'm done. I'll be back to waiting. Right now I have something immediate to do as part of the PC process but after my essay, nothing. I know I'll go shopping for things and start thinking about packing and canceling my cellphone, etc. but there's something about being actively involved in the process that I really enjoy.
I really have no choice - they only give you 10 days to turn it in. I was done with it yesterday and convinced myself I should get some editing help, perhaps to prolong the process - the part of the process where I feel in control.
