Building credit that is. So, for everyone growing impatient with their CLs or having the urge to app. Take breather.
Have a good day everyone!

Agreed. And to extend the metaphor, don't forget to warm up or you might hurt yourself
After I got approved for a card recently i went on an app spree and all the inquiries and new credit actually dropped by FICO score by about 40 points. I've now moved into marathon/garden mode.
