As I’m waiting impatiently to receive the “yay” or “nay” phone call from the company I am most excited about working for, I have realized just how stressful all of this really is. The idea of not having a full time job with benefits lined up has turned me into one seriously crazy bitch. The worst feeling: I can’t seem to stop myself.
Every time the phone rings or every time I see the little email wheel spinning to tell me I might be getting a new message, my stomach does flips until I see the phone call is a wrong number and the email is just the same press release I’ve gotten three times over each day for the past week. Needless to say, my usual smile and laugh has been replaced with some minor doom and gloom but some major growls.
Peggy Sue (formerly Peggy Sue and the Pirates) have an album dropping today, Acrobats (stream at Spinner), which suits my mood pretty well but also seems to match the vibes of some of the other artists I’ve been into lately, such as Radiation City and Dark Dark Dark. It is moody, yes, but not quite angry and not dark to the point of feeling as though all is lost.
I’ll enjoy this for now, but I’m really looking forward to when I can comfortably be happy singing “All I Want for Christmas is You” again.
