Calling inspiration: Where are you?

Alright. So here’s the story. On 7/11, a Friday, I finished and sent out an application for a high school ELA position. On Thursday (7/17) I received a call around 9:30 from the secretary of MSAD 13 Bingham/Moscow. For those of you who are not familiar with my area of the state, Bingham is about 44 minutes north or where I now live. They wanted me to come in for an interview…that day! I scheduled the time for 1 o’clock and spent the rest of my morning prepping and printing off everything I could possibly think I need for the interview. (However, as we all know, all the prepping feels as though it’s for not because we never end up using any of this stuff at the interview.) I go in for the interview and was shocked to find that the interview party only consisted of the district principal and the only other ELA teacher in the high school. They were both really nice and I feel the meeting went really well. Granted, I’m doing my normal thing of, “Did I say this right?,” “Should I have said this or this?” type of stuff.
The issue now lies in the fact that I have no inspiration to do anything. I feel that I am now on hold, waiting until I hear yea or nay from them when I really should be using this to propel myself onward and upward. So here I sit, sipping on an Irish Creme iced coffee hoping to get myself in gear to finish up some very neglected applications. If anyone has any left over charisma or inspiration, feel free to send some my way.
