Time and Anticipation are Funny Things

Earlier this week, I was perfectly content with the idea that the winners' announcement (for the Rooglewood contest) was 4 1/2 weeks away.

Now, it is almost unbearable that it is a day and a half away.  Why must it be the day AFTER tomorrow?  Why not tomorrow morning?

Isn't that funny?  The time to wait has been shortened drastically and I only wish it were even shorter?

Sigh.  There are things about humans that defy logic.  And sometimes even logical humans experience them.

On a different note, do you know what makes me even more excited about this contest?  The fact that I know several friends who entered!  It makes the anticipation even better for I am not only looking to see if my name is on the list but also to see if one of theirs is.  I feel like, if any of us makes it into the collection, I will be thrilled.  And if any of us don't, we can share our hopes for next time.  See?  It just makes it better.  :)

Okay, I am off to do something productive to pass the time until Sunday...


  1. I've entered a few essay contests, so I totally understand that feeling. Whenever I enter a contest I go through swings where at one point I don't want the results to ever be announced and other points where I want the results NOW. *shakes head* Once again, good luck!
