The waiting process for the foreign service is somewhat like a scary movie. The music is playing louder and louder, you grip the armrests so hard your fingers are turning white, as you wait...wait...wait for the next step. Like waiting for the pretty screaming girl to be killed by the bad guy...
This is a long movie. Several more months of waiting....waiting...waiting....trying to continue life as normal. Trying to not obsess over where I hope to be in 6 months or a year. Who lives that way?
Those of us who want to work for the FS, that's who.
Hopefully my security clearance will start soon. I'm headed to Malawi, Africa for a medical mission trip in July. That will be a 2 week trip. Something to take my mind off this wait.
