And the nerves set in.

With the ink drying on the pages, I scan and probe for mistakes one last time. Fonts. Size. Everything seems to be in order.

My coverletter and resume are put together, located rather precariously near my bowl of Honey Bunches of Oats. Maybe I should move them...

Sometime today I will be dropping the precious pages in the blue box that seems to eat and never deliver mail. The reason for my discontent? Textbooks. I sent a check--yes I still use them--for books, and they have to receive the check before they start bundling my books. I am about to crawl up a wall when I visit Amazon and all I see is "we must receive your check first."

I know it is going to Washington state. I should really have some patience. I try to stay clear of the debit card numbers when working online. I just don't trust companies with that information.

Let's hope Greensburg mail moves a bit more quickly.

(I can't believe how professional and feminine this looks, especially on Firefox (that I downloaded with Karissa's recommendation).)

Take a deep breath because you will be fine! It's in the bag chica!

I just closed the envelope. I almost had a panic attack when I thought that I didn't put my middle initial in my signature, as I had typed it underneath. I swear, I am so neurotic when I do stuff like this.

It is done, and my Dad is sending it in first-class mail tomorrow. Thank ye, Da. :-)

Haha, no worries in online transactions. I've never been disappointed with Amazom, and I've order used CDs AND books--with no problem, and always before I needed them.

Glad you're loving Firefox. What a dream compared to IE! =-0

Amanda, good luck on your application. But unless I missed something, I don't know what you are applying for! Did I miss that?

Good luck, Amanda. And relax!

And Karissa... wow! Dulce et utile -- sweet and useful. A blogger recently called some of my resources "ugly but organized"... or was she talking about me?

Karissa, you should make a little rectangular graphic to stick on all the blogs where you've made your mark!

*blush* Thank you for the kind words, Dr. Jerz. I'll think about making my own button. I don't think I presently have access to the resources, but I can fiddle with things a bit (as I may have already proven, I am prone to "fiddling" anyway).

She wasn't talking about you, Dr. Jerz. You aren't organized. :-D
