Today I am a big ball of anxiety about filling out forms and getting approved for things. I completely hate putting my information, documents, and personal needs into the hands of others — I don’t know when it happened, but I have this insane fear that somehow everything will go wrong and something terrible will happen.
Today, the problem is my background check for my upcoming job — some sort of miscommunication so they did not get my fingerprints into the system or something — but instead of it being a “whoops, guess I’ll go down there again,” I totally freaked and for like 20 minutes was like “oh, I’ll never get a job” or whatever. I am completely insane.
In other news, my new passport WILL BE HERE before our trip to Aruba, so we are totally covered there! This makes me very happy and almost makes up for the fact that I have no idea what is going on with my identity as it may be lost somewhere in the federal government’s security check system, and I just gave my credit card information out over the phone to someone who purportedly works for the Department of State (but who really knows??).
