This is not my full paranoid rant about placement. That will come later.
For this post, I would like to discuss the second phase of Restless Applicant Syndrome (RAS): Invitation Jealousy (IJ).
I love Peace Corps Journals. This site has been ridiculously helpful in all stages of the applicant process.
As I approach the time of reckoning (hearing from Placement in 3-5 weeks), I cannot read PCJ without developing a severe case of Invitation Jealousy. This becomes especially acute when people are invited to countries in Asia. It also occurs when people that have been medically cleared around when I was have already heard from Placement.
These are completely immature emotions, but that is what RAS does to a person. Anyone have any tips on screwing my head back on straight again?
Maybe I’ll send placement my updated resume now.
