    Relax and find something else to worry about, you still have a ways to go - the system is slow, nothing happens in days, weeks or even months in this game.
    After you reach MMI the carrier will make an offer, you will collect TTD until then so times on your side.
    From what you've posted I'd guess you have at least a year or more to go, they usually don't drag it out past five years - don't rush it or appear desperate, the carrier will use it against you.

    Relax, enjoy life and let the system play out. - you'll be fine in the end.
