HELLO FROM THE OOOOOOUTSIIIIIIIIIDE! I must have called a thousand tiiiiiiiimes!
No, seriously guys–I have something akin to life whiplash right now. So–I MOVED! Which I know I mentioned in my last Stacking the Shelves post but that was SO LONG AGO I felt the need to remind everybody. I moved, and I started putting in job applications pretty much right away, and…
A WHOLE WEEK! went by, and I hadn’t heard anything. So I logged into my email and was getting ready to go back to perusing snagajob.com… and said job site emailed me. I opened it up. It’s from an employer, seeking help–they found my resume on the site and thought they’d reach out to me to see if I’d be interested in a job.
WELL HECKLES YES! I thought. So I filled out the application on the website. And then I got another email–could you fill out the application for the company’s website? Please and thank you?
Okay, sure, I can TOTALLY do that. Filled it out. Awesome, that’s cool, let me just go back to perusing snagajob.com now and………
and my phone rings. It’s the employer; can we set up an interview? For, say, tomorrow?
WELL OKAY, I have nothing else to do with my time and I haven’t heard back from anyone else yet. So… I go to the interview, massive butterflies and the whole nervous shebang. And it turns out to not be an ACTUAL interview, but a more “meet and greet.” Within half an hour, I had a job.
And I don’t mean like, your normal job, okay? I mean, they brought me on as assistant manager…with the hopes that by March, I’ll be managing one of their two locations.
So I’ve been there two weeks, TODAY…and was told yesterday? or Wednesday? within the last few days at least, that because I’ve learned so quickly and moved through the training at such a rapid pace, I am FOR SURE going to be offered general manager position. They’re working on drawing up all the paperwork.
I’ve been in Indy, what… three weeks? Four maybe? HOW DID THIS EVEN HAPPEN I DON’T UNDERSTAND?!?!?!?! I feel like…somewhere in the last few months of my life, something massive happened. Something massive changed, and suddenly I have all this opportunity and the chance to actually TAKE THE CHANCE and I just…
Yeah, life whiplash. Definitely.
So aside from working like a maniac and trying to shove a WHOLE BUNCH of information into my brain all at once, I haven’t really done a whole lot? Keith’s parents were in town this last weekend, and we moved into a bigger apartment (two floors! two bedrooms! THERE’S SO MUCH ROOM I CAN’T EVEN!) [I feel like I’ve spent a lot of this post shouting at all of you…. #sorrynotsorry #Imsuperexcitedaboutstuffandthings ] Keith bought me a Fire tablet!!! which I received in the mail yesterday, and oh my it’s SO pretty! YAY for being able to read graphic novels on my tablet now because I couldn’t before!?!?! Also, we’re going to be purchasing a humongaloid DVD shelf thingy for our living room. It holds some crazy amount like 800 DVDs?! and we both sort of fell in love with it. So, it’ll be only about halfway filled…which means YAY room to add more if we ever actually buy any more physical copies (because netflix. and vudu. and youtube. seriously, who even needs cable tv?!?!?! Not us!)
And… that’s about it really! How are you all doing?!
