I'm not worried about...

Today I'm feeling more than a little bit overwhelmed. There are the usual things, of course, but I'm now acutely concerned about my lack of job for the next year.

Ugh.

At times like this, I find it helpful to make a list of things I'm not worried about.

I am not worried about...

1. my lack of tan.
2. Michelle Obama's proud display of her post-Title IX arms.
3. global warming.
4. losing myself in my current relationship. (i <3 being single!)
5. pirates... who don't do anything.

6. my present haircut or color.
7. my ability to bake a damn fine cupcake.
8. the completion of my master's degree.
9. the price of a soy latte at Starbucks. the taste of my ever-improving homemade soy lattes.
10. a devastatingly large mortgage.

See? Joblessness is not so bad after all! I could be dealing with a debilitating cupcake handicap or a pirate who actually does something!

Okay. I'm now getting back to the job hunt/application world. Here's something for you to do: Let me know what you aren't worried about so I'll have something to smile about when I take my next break.

Oh, and if you say that you aren't worried about finding a job then I will send you the worst interweb stinkeye you've ever seen or heard of.

What about....I'm not worried about YOU finding a job. It'll happen. You always have that in with the gastro-industry.

I am not worried about taking exams. I have decided it isn't worth the energy.

I am worried about global warming, but we're different.

I am NOT worried about enjoying my summer. But I'd be more certain if I had a DISNEY WORLD TRIP planned. :)

I am worried about the Red Sox and the Symposium. I am not worried about graduating or the love of my cats.

I'm not worried about college, or my finals coming up.

Eep... Maybe I am. But I'm not worried about my family's status even in the recession, which is something to be thankful for. Like kmari said, I'm also not worried about you, and I wish you the best of luck :)

You guys would laugh if you saw how excited I got when each of your comments popped up on my screen! They were like perfectly timed cover letter-writing breaks. :)

kmari03: Now I'm worried about ending up at the gastroenterologists!! :) Just kidding... they aren't so bad. (except that they are.)

Evan: Don't worry about Symposium. I know it's going to go smashingly well.

Elissa: Only be excited about college! It will be so much fun and I wish I could be your English 101 teacher. Oh... I'm getting nostalgic over your upcoming college experience. How does that work? :)

i'm not worried about the fact that i just spent approximately 4 hours outside in the sun watching sports, made myself overly available to the general viewing public and came away with a sunburn.

how's that?

I'm not worried that I could be pregnant or that my cat might die (since I don't have one). I'm not worried that I can't think of many things I'm not worried about because it really means I'm not worried about them. So not worried they don't even come to mind.
