That Feeling

Tell us about the last thing you got excited about — butterflies-in-the-stomach, giggling, can’t-wait excited.

I honestly cannot remember the last thing I got really excited about. It’s been a while. I can’t remember even getting that excited about starting this job, my current one, when I got selected for it after several months of joblessness. Even my last two phones and my current laptop which I got over a year back.

Ok, I do get excited for things that I buy – my very first Star Trek starship which was the USS Enterprise D in particular was a very exciting thing as it was my first after waiting for such a long, long time. Movies that I have been looking forward to for a while offers some excitement but not butterflies-in-the-stomach kind. I wonder what will it take for me, at this stage of my life, to get that kind of feeling again.

I have applied for a different post at my office this past week and I am looking forward to attending the interview rounds and seeing if I get it. And if I do I also want to see how I can do at it and that does offer some excitement. But it’s just a job though I have to see how much more money I can get from it. Still no butterflies!
