Heart racing, shallow accelerated breathing, dark slightly unfocused eyes and twitching fingers dancing across the keyboard in a nervous dance – and then suddenly the fingers stop, the breathing stops and the eyes close, all you can hear is the beating heart – the mail is off, lost in cyberspace and out of my control. I’ve sent my first real job application.
The thing is I don’t really expect to get the job, it’s so out of my league I’m almost a bit embarrassed to even apply, but still I have to try, and I can’t help but hope. So now the application is off and hopefully the butterflies in my stomach will settle down long enough for me to get a cup off coffee with my girls. I need all the distraction I can get today!
