Yes. I've been terrible over the last 3 or 4 weeks. Pupillage interviews, a new temp job, the olympics - all sorts of excuses not to blog, and I am actually sorry about that. The support on this blog, from comments, tweets, emails, all of it, it's made this whole process go much, much more easily than it could have done. I owe you all a great deal of thanks.
So how do things stand? I'm still in the running in three Sets - including 'Dream Set'. Dream Set is like that girl who used to sit at the back of the classroom at school. She never looked at you, she never showed any interest in you - and yet you dared to dream. So, getting a first round interview with Dream Set was like that girl agreeing to go on a date with you. Getting a second round interview was like her actually turning up. Getting an offer would be a 'proper kiss' goodnight. Reserve list would be a peck on the cheek. Rejection would be her reacting badly to the food and vomiting in my lap - all that work to actually get a chance, and throwing it all away at the last moment.
Do I think I'll get an offer with Dream Set? No. But by God I'd love it if that would happen.
Anyhow, some time after 9am tomorrow I'll find out. For now I'll sit here, watching the olympics, too nervous to do very much at all, too nervous to sleep - daring to daydream about some good new tomorrow.
It's like Christmas Eve, but knowing that there's a strong possibility that when I wake up I'll discover that Santa has in fact robbed my house.
