The way of dealing with the stress of the interviewing process is NOT to sit in front of the computer, becoming frustrated at the BS associated with RSS. I need to work on the RDF book, true, but I’m also taking time to do some hiking.
In fact, I’m going to be increasing the difficulty of the hikes I take. I’m still not in the best of shape, but if I take it slow and use caution, I should be able to traverse some of the tougher hikes in the area.
There are few things more uplifting to the soul than completing a challenge that’s just beyond your current skills. Nothing else seems to give a greater boost to either morale or confidence. I need this now. I need the type of challenge that tempts me to give up half way, but that I’ll stick with, and succeed. No one and no body can give you this type of success, or take it away.
So, if you’re in Missouri, out in the country, and hear the far off faint cries of a woman screaming at the top of her lungs, you’ll know that it’s just me, having met another challenge…or it’s me, and I’ve managed to fall off a cliff.
(Just foolin’ about the cliff. My mama didn’t raise no fool.)
