Waiting is an activity that I’m slowly learning is the key to everything here in Israel. Every office, every organization, every document, includes an excess of waiting. From the moment I left Israel at the end of May 2007, I was waiting, waiting to return to Israel and make Aliyah. And from the day I arrived, waiting has been the name of the game. And now, I’ll be waiting to get drafted – more waiting. I have a lot of patience, but sometimes it just gets so frustrating. I don’t want to wait anymore; I want to get started! But there is nothing I can do to make things happen faster. I guess by the end of this process, I’ll have a whole lot more patience that I started with.
