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.
