Signs OCI is making you crazy!

Postby ---why--- » Tue Aug 18, 2009 7:12 pm

We need some humor around here. I'll start.

1. you called your mom yesterday and were shocked she didn't tell you that she would "be with you in a minute."

2. you dream about the red blinking dot on your blackberry actually blinking

3. When the red dot blinks it is never a law firm.

4. you think your personality is awful because your resume is pretty good and you have no offers.

I did, but that doesn't make the thread as much fun. Come on people, cheer us up...

5. You begin to divide all of your conversations into 20 minute intervals.

This isn't really a "sign" so much as another reason I will go crazy by the time OCI is over.

I walked into the bathroom to double-check my appearance as soon as I got to the interview location today. Simon & Garfunkel's "The Boxer" was playing over the radio, and it was right at the point where they sing, "Asking only workman's wages, I come looking for a job, but I get no offers."

That was easily the single most foreboding experience of my life.

Area codes become the most important event of the day.

You go to bed thinking about interviews. You wake up thinking about interviews. You dream about interviews.

You are much more willing to leave class to answer a phone call.

Email refreshing is on a whole new level.

Any conversation with a fellow student starts with "so, how's the job search going?"

you seriously consider leaving the country permanently to avoid debt repayment due to lack of OCI results.
