Or: Strange Things That Have Made Me Cry Lately
Today, while driving around in the dark, in the rain, tending to errands that I wish were OVER already (hi grad school apps!) I was listening to the radio when Tom Petty came on. I was sitting there at the stoplight thinking about all of the things I'm waiting on--grad school applications to be done, my life to stop sucking, my job to stop making me cry every day (in a meeting today! thats a first), sleep deprivation to stop leaving giant black circles under my eyes, etc. and I just burst into tears. Big, pathetic, crocodile-size tears. In this crappy interim where I can't do anything about anything, Tom and his heartbreakers have it right; waiting is the hardest part.
