Awake in the morning! How…unique.

We have a meeting with a realtor today. I set my alarm for 8:30, but was so excited that I woke up at 6:30 and couldn’t get back to sleep.

I got up and took my laptop in the other room and wrote an essay I’ve been stressing about all weekend. It really wasn’t all that hard. Part of the reason I didn’t get it done on Friday like I meant to was because I was overwhelmed by the idea of the essay–it could make or break my job application. But another reason is simply that I don’t have a quiet place of my own to work. This morning I went into the workout room and wrote my essay with the computer sitting on the treadmill; it’s the most privacy I can really find.

Once I reserved my quiet spot and got to work, though, the essay came flowing out of me. A few revisions, and I was ready to submit my application. (Here’s hoping!)

We’re about to leave for the realtor, and I’ve been writing out a few last-minute questions I have about purchasing a home. Hopefully this meeting will be very educational.
