Patience and Improvement

Last Tuesday, I had my third "interview" for the Leasing Specialist job. I put interview in quotes because it wasn't like the past two interviews where they asked me questions and I answered. It was much more disorganized. I also left feeling like I didn't do very well. For the past two interviews I left feeling like I knocked them out of the park (there's some World Series lingo for you). This time I just wasn't feeling it, but I was still hopeful. It was down to me and one other person, for goodness sake.

So I did the pathetic high school girl thing and waited by the phone for them to call. I assumed they would call me by Friday with a yes or no. Friday came and went...still nothing. Charles and I are assuming there could be a couple situations at work here... 1) they offered the position to the other person and that person hasn't said yes or no yet, 2) they haven't decided yet, 3) they decided not to offer the job to me and do not want to call me. Charles thinks I should call them, but I really don't want to call them and then get the bad news. And I hate calling people.

Either way, I'm back to the job search. I took a break since I was so hopeful for this job. 

On a positive note, I went to the oral surgeon today. Last month, I got my wisdom teeth out and had some nerve damage on one side of my mouth (thanks to my crazy teeth roots). This has caused one half of my lower lip down to my chin numb. I went in today to see if there was any progress on nerve repair. I didn't really want to go in because it's still numb and it didn't seem to be getting any better. But, to my surprise, things had improved quite a bit. It's still numb, but it's less numb than it was a month ago. I have to go back next month to see what happens next. But he's hopeful that I'll have it much improved (if not completely improved) in the next few months. To be honest, the numbing doesn't really bother me anymore. Don't get me wrong, I would love to feel that side of my mouth again, but now I'm used to it.
