Chill, dude

Ever get antsy about people's lack of communication?  I've been in a state lately, since it seemed that I wasn't hearing back from anyone I had emailed about practically anything, personal or professional.  It was remarkably like grad school: I started to panic that I had somehow offended this person or that, and had no idea what to do about it. 

And then, strangely enough, everyone suddenly got back to me today.  I mean, literally, today.  All of them.  The senior colleague whose advice I sought, the junior colleague collaborating on a project, the friend I invited to lunch, the woman I'm trying to organize a date with — all within mere hours of each other.  Apparently, today was Get Back to Koshary Day.

Odd.  But I'm glad to see those emails in my inbox!  And, just like when I was in grad school, I must remind myself to chill the hell out and stop being paranoid about ordinary delays in correspondence.
