Monday Morning

I found out that I didn't get the job at Samaritan's Purse. I was really dissapointed to get the letter in the mail. I felt a little defeated too. I thought the job was going to be what I was looking for and such a great fit... but they must not have thought so. In fact, today I noticed the job was re-posted as available. I'm having a hard time dealing with why they wouldn't have wanted me for the job. I know there could be a million different reasons, but I feel a little hurt by it all. After 3 interviews for one job I got my hopes up I guess.

So I'm looking for more opportunities. I search online every day for companies in the area to apply to, for job openings, and I've called both staffing agencies I'm working with to let them know I'm still looking for something permanant. So now I'm doing more waiting and praying for patience.

This weekend was nice. just filled with normal weekend stuff. Garage sale-ing, laundry, grilled chicken and hanging out.
I bought a cool cookware pan at a garage sale. It's my favorite color. : )
It matches my set of dishes.

I'm at work right now, but there isn't anything going on. I finished my stack of things to do, and I have a little while until the attorney's will be back from court. So far, today's been a pretty good day for a Monday.

Last Week

Last week went by so fast. I've been getting more and more things to do at work lately. For awhile, I didn't have anything to do-- until the attorney discovered that I can do some of the work she needs. So now I'm busy, but it does make the days go by faster.

Monday night was the Fray concert, it was so cool. I like small shows, but this one was such a production that it seemed epic. This weekend we went garage sale-ing and furniture shopping. We bought a really cool dining table for our apartment and I got a paper towel holder... but that's it. : )
AND I had my 3rd and final interview at Samaritan's Purse. I'm really anxious to hear back from them. They said they would know in the next week and a half. I'm just praying that as they make the decision, they will remember the finer points of my interview and the things I said about why I really want to work there.
Tomorrow is Monday, groan... I don't feel rested from the weekend. I'm ready to have another weekend already. Well, it's good to be earning money!

Happy 4th!

It's wonderful to have a day off, I've been looking forward to this for 2 weeks! : ) I am glad to have a job, but I don't really enjoy it.

So here's the big news, I had an interview on Tuesday with Samaritan's Purse. It went really well I think. Looking back on it, I think I said all the right things, and did everything they say you're supposed to do during an interview. AND, I have a follow-up interview with the regional director's boss next week. So I guess it's a good sign that they asked me back for another interview, they must have liked me.

I still really want the job, and feel like it would be a great fit for me. But I'm feeling some doubts and I'm anxious about it all. I shouldn't be having doubts, I should be happy. It might be a long week waiting for the interview to come.

I have an interview tomorrow that I'm really excited about...

...because I think I really want the job. I've realized that it's important to me to find a job where I'm excited to be, I actually want to go to work, and I can learn a lot and contribute more as time goes on.

This interview is for a job with an organization I knew about before I moved here, and the office is really close to where we're going to live. I think my skills and personality will really fit the job, and I feel like it's what I'm looking for. I'm nervous and excited--I really hope I get this job... : )
