story time!

i wasn't planning on saying anything until i knew for sure what was going to happen, based on what happened here then here. but then i realized that this is life. people are disappointed, blown off, and let down on a regular basis. my blog is a documentation and reflection of my actual, real life, not my "blog life." so i decided to share with you. and if i get disappointed again, oh well. at least i won't be hiding how human i am.

soooooo, with that said, I HAD A BIG GIANT INTERVIEW today.

for a job that i kinda think i'm gonna get.

it's a banquet serving position. not what i went to school for, but who cares?? i need a job! i was a wedding and event coordinator for about five years so i know the industry well.

so this is how my day went:


i woke up (really nervous), took a shower (really really nervous), and ate my surprise breakfast presented to me by levi:
a rainbow sprinkle donut and a red bull
(this probably didn't help my nerves)


got dressed, put on makeup, got my hair styled by levi, and kissed him goodbye



drove to Los Angeles and arrived at my 11:30 interview at 10:45 (i'm early when i'm nervous.)

GAVE THE BEST INTERVIEW EVERRRRRR


drove home and rewarded myself with a cupcake in the park (under the watchful gaze of that little guy)

thank you for sending me off with so many prayers and well wishes this morning! it certainly helped! i'll be sure to share what happens, good or bad.


post-edit note:
soooo, not five minutes after posting this, i got a phone call.

letting me know that I GOT THE JOB!!!

i start on monday.

eeeeeeeeeeeeeeek!

  11. I can't think of a sexier way to feel like a million bucks {for an interview} than to have my lover do my hair....granted he knew how ;) Sweet news...

  12. Hurray! Hurrah! So happy for you! God, I can so clearly remember the horrible feeling before the job interviews. Yikes! And, I'm also early when I'm nervous. Once, I was so early to a job interview that they actually thought (while interviewing me) that I was the person scheduled before me. Ha! I got that job. Despite or because being so early?
    Congratulations!

  45. Oh, congratulations! I'm soo happy for you! I read this the day you posted it (but not the happy update!) and have been thinking about it ever since. For a long time, I didn't even want to write about my relationship whatsoever because what if the whole thing fell apart and then I felt stupid?

    I loved these words: "my blog is a documentation and reflection of my actual, real life, not my "blog life." so i decided to share with you. and if i get disappointed again, oh well. at least i won't be hiding how human i am."

    Thank you! That really inspired me. I think I'm going to have to write a post about it at some point... Again, congrats!

    ReplyDelete
  46. Congratulations with the job!

    I only recently started reading your blog and it makes me smile :)

    Hope it all works out!
