I finally psyched myself up to calling the local community college because I had some questions (is that redundant, "local community"?) and because Mom suggested I might need an appointment for what I wanted to talk to them about, as opposed to walking into the admissions office and expecting the secretary to be able to answer my questions.
Have I mentioned that I hate making phone calls? Well, I do. It's something I need to get over or at least come to terms with. In the meantime I despise it.
So I'm not thrilled about calling someone I don't know. I figured out what I was going to ask them, hoped they'd understand me, and guess what...the line was busy. And it's still busy. I suppose perhaps the admissions office is not open on Mondays, so it just says that the line is busy? Who knows.
At this rate I will be irritated enough when I do finally get through that I will no longer be terrified. Nothing like indignation to overcome terror. And if I don't get through...I guess I'll email them or go ahead and walk in there on Wednesday and set up a proper appointment then if I need to.
