Sadly, Patience is Not Available at Target

It's all about the waiting game right now.

* Waiting for my graduation to show up on my transcript
* Waiting for the job I'd love to have to actually open
* Waiting for the right time to not make a move but kind of make a move on the guy I kind of like
* Waiting for the best price on an airline ticket to go visit my grandma (I have to fly to Vegas, pay travel to Vegas prices but spend the entire trip in the suburbs of Arizona)

And, as luck would have it, I can't just run into Target and buy myself a bag of patience. It's virtue I've got to develop all on my own.

Okay, okay, I know that of the things I'm waiting to do, waiting to make a "move" on a guy is probably the most interesting to other people.

Do you remember my random post about Sort-of-Cute-Guy (aka The Guy I Should Be Dating) way back in January. Well, it turns out that he no longer has a girlfriend, and that this was his decision. According to his mom (yes, I know, be wary of the mom trying to set her son up), he said, "Don't play matchmaker...but I like Sarah." Now, I have not ASKED for any of this. His mother has taken it upon herself to try to pair the two of us up by dropping handy little hints about his single status, and I happen to think it's a dandy idea, but it's going to happen it's own time.

Luckily, I had a talk with one of my far-away friends yesterday, and she offered some great advice on how to handle the situation (I'll divulge that method should it actually work). It was just what I needed to hear, and she said, "This is WHY you have older and wiser friends. I've been through this before, and I'm here to help you." Ahh, wisdom, what a priceless thing.

I wonder if I can pick up some at Target.
