As many of my readers know, I’m going to grad school. For the first time in my life, I am moving out on my own. No mom, no RAs. I have big and grand plans (including a permanent altar). If I can, perhaps I’ll get a cat!
I just need an apartment first.
And this task has been turning out to be more difficult than I first imagined. Despite sending inquiry emails daily, I’ve gotten rejected, waited too long (and by that I mean two days), and just plain never heard anything. I admit, I’m starting to get frustrated.
In a talk with one of my friends, she joked, “You’re a witch, just do a spell.” For some reason, that sort of bugged me. Is this what my friends think, that I do a spell and what I want automatically goes my way? That’s just ridiculous. I have to fill out the forms, go do all the interviews, and wait it out just like everyone else. Have I done a spell to give myself clarity in what I want? Yes. Will I try to get into the apartment before I move in to give it a good physical and spiritual cleaning? Yes. But those aren’t necessarily magical things rather that steps in the process of moving.
I guess the best thing I can do is take this frustration as a lesson in patience, Goddess knows something I’m terrible at.
