Waiting for a return call from a potential employer can be agonizing. Minutes feel like hours, and hours feel like days. But it’s crucial to remember to remain patient because good news could be coming your way soon.

Maryland residents know this feeling all too well as a historic tradition has returned. The Maryland State Fair returned Thursday last week after being cancelled in 2020 due to the pandemic, much to the delight of locals.

So the next time you’re holding out hope for some good news, remember to be patient and remain optimistic.
