Just a Little Bit Better

As you may or may not know, I recently graduated from college with a degree in Education. Well, since before graduating {in, oh, say...March?!?!}, I've been looking for a teaching position. I had a couple face-to-face interviews, but none of them panned out the way I needed them to - which means I didn't get the job. But, I'm not the kind to give up! My parents kept telling me to get a part time job in retail. I said, "No, thank you." Been there; done that; don't want to again. And, thankfully!!!, my patience paid off.

Friday - I got an e-mail from a school that I had asked to be put on their sub list telling me that they had a position open up for a floater/aftercare worker. I immediately wrote back and said I would love to be considered.

Saturday - I was in the car with my mom on the way to Hobby Lobby and Lowe's when I got a phone call. The lady asked if I was busy, and, obviously, I said no. I then had a phone interview. It involved three questions and was fairly easy. {{Kind of nerve wracking though sitting next to my mom}}

Sunday - I get a phone call. The lady has that sound in her voice. You know...the one where they're about to let you down??? Except...she didn't! She offered me a job. And, I took it!!!!! Now, I start tomorrow @ 11am.

I feel so empowered. I can't wait to start working there. :)

This was a good weekend!!

p.s. Be sure to enter the contests I posted about this weekend!!!! (One ends tonight.)
