Just like the title says. You just ordered a new piece of gear, how do you fight the excitement that comes with waiting for it to arrive? Gimme your best, Pit.

think of how ****ed it will be because the ups guy destroyed it, convince yourself it will be ****ed, be happy when you actually get it

have lots of sex. then stop when your item arrives. from one kinda happy to another... it's win.

Hit refresh on the ups site until it says on vehicle for delivery and then wait at the door for the driver to deliver it. I doubt anyone does anything else.

Don't say that! I used to work for UPS, I know how some people handled guitars. Fortunately, mine's not coming UPS, so hopefully I'll be safe.

Why fight it? You're getting something that you've been wanting and its on it's way. BE HAPPY.


Because, the more excited I get, the slower time seems to move. The next 6 days will last an eternity unless I distract myself somehow.

Go on with your life as normal until the expected delivery date, maybe checking every day or two if the date has changed. That's what I do anyways.

Its hard to deal with honestly I get so damn compulsive about it, i'll literally check atleast once an hour to see where it's at. Ive cut back on that though.

just tell yourself it's only a few days from arrival I guess

I'm waiting on a new motherboard that should be here by Friday. If ALL goes well, I'll have successfully installed OSX on my desktop. I play down the excitement (and expectations) by reasoning that shit'll probably go horribly wrong and it's not gonna happen.

...modes and scales are still useless.

Good suggestions thus far. I'm waiting on something to arrive on Wednesday, but I don't know if I'll actually get it that day. It's being shipped to a music store close to me, and I'm not sure if I'll be able to head down that day to get it. Really hoping, though.

The first couple days after I've bought something aren't that bad for me. Like the day before and the day of it coming I go crazy though. Last week I bought parts to build a new computer and they came yesterday. The day before (Monday) I was checking UPS's website constantly and going out to the mail box just on the off chance they were there. I should have gotten at least one thing (the graphics card) Monday because it said it was in my city, but I guess they didn't deliver it because it wasn't the "delivery date."

On the other hand though, I ordered a Wifi adapter for my computer last Friday night and I'm getting pretty antsy. Kind of pissed that they didn't ship it until Monday, but oh well. Hopefully it'll come tomorrow.

Class and work definitely helped ease my anxiousness.

Yeah, normally that'd help me too, but I didn't get scheduled to work this week, and I'm still on summer break.

I haven't quite figured out how to deal with it yet.

I bought my new computer Thursday and the order didn't go through until Friday night, so it didn't ship till Monday.

Am I the only person that doesn't get this? I ended up getting ten packages in the mail from various places over the summer and not once did I check the tracking or rush to the mailbox in the hopes that they had arrived...


Tell me I'm not weird, please?

Let me put it this way...When I know something's coming for me, I rape the F5 button on the tracking site, and on the day it's supposed to get here, my ears are peeled for the sound of a diesel engine.
