Patience, Grasshopper

Being on the Register itself is possibly more excruciating than going through the clearances.  Being stuck at a certain rank, movement is uncertain and nerve wracking.  One week I'm at X out of 200+, and two weeks later I'm further down the list at X+6.  It's at this point that I need to leave it in the hands of fate.  Obsessively checking my email or refreshing the group when calls begin to go out are less than helpful; all I can do is begin to refresh my CNL and schedule a test (of which I am less than certain of passing) and sign up again for the next FSOT testing window.

It'll either happen or it won't.  The aggravating thing is that it's just right there!
