"Okay, campers, rise and shine, and don't forget your booties 'cause it's cooooold out there today."
So I'm feeling a little like Bill Murray in Groundhog Day lately. Kinda like I've been here before, and I'm afraid it's just going to keep happening over and over and over ... ad infinitum.
I re-took the written test back in March, and passed again. Then I submitted my essays (again), and here I am waiting. Again. This process started in January. Of 2009. Not only does this process test the 13 dimensions, but REALLY tests patience.
If my evil plan works, I'll pass the essays, get another invite to the July OA, pass the OA with flying colors, proceed straight to the Register (again), but this time much higher due to my awesome OA score. Then an invite to the September or October A-100 will come by early August. Of course, State doesn't consult me on these plans, so what is there to do? Only more waiting. Ugh.
