I feel certain there are tens of thousands of people on pins and needles waiting for the follow up report on whether I decided to put in for the new job. I previously wrote about my pathetic indecisiveness. One job being cushier while the other is upwardly mobile. Late Thursday, much as I predicted, I was frantically attempting to think of descriptive phrases to use on my resume. You know clever stuff that makes you sound super important and highly skilled. I'm not sure how successful I was. Eh.
I decided to put in for the job not because I've decided I want it but because I haven't decided that I don't want it. In my head it's a "just in case" move. Just in case the cushy new job I'll be starting soon is boring. Just in case I become tragically power hungry and decide I need to take over the world.
I figure if I get a call for an interview I can decide then. I'm so good at putting things off. See how I delayed that decision to the last possible moment? See how I've set myself up to have to make that decision while I'm sitting on the phone being asked what day and time would be good for me? Maybe I won't even get a call for an interview and then I won't have to decide at all. Another brilliant strategy on my part. Who wouldn't want to hire someone with these planning skills? Eh.
