halle-freaking-lujah

i got a job today! i went in to interview at a security system company, and it went so well i got hired on the spot! i was actually scheduled to have two back-to-back interviews in different departments. near the end of the first interview the girl said, "So I heard you have another interview at 4? I wouldn't even bother going.." i was like wait...what!?! she got a hold of the interviewer in the other department and told her they were keeping me.

YAYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYYY!!!!!!!!!!!

yeah, it's not a job in my field. but it is a FULL TIME, decent paying, steady job! i start on monday. having this job takes sooo much stress off of us while we look for our dream jobs. also, josh and i will work at the same place, and maybe even have the same hours (i find out tomorrow)! i'll be in the retention department, "saving" accounts from being canceled. i think it will be fun and challenging. and you can get commission and other perks like that, so i'm pretty excited.

on a different note, my stomach has been super messed up since i had lunch with a friend (it was awesome to see her but not so awesome to get sick from the salad). luckily i was able to keep it together [aka i chugged enough maalox] to be ok for the interview. thank goodness! i thought it was just nerves at first (i get super nervous for interviews!) but nerves don't make your stomach messed up for over 8 hours. thank you, food poisoning. [...tmi? meh, who cares]

so... i'm going to eat some more toast and try to go to bed now. cheers ♥

***UPDATE: i get to work the same hours as josh! hollaaaa!

Congrats on the new job! Eager to hear more about it. And I hope your tummy feels better! I have had food poisoning twice, and it was totally miserable both times. The good news is that it doesn't last all that long!

Yayyyyy! Congratulations girly! Good for you, sounds like you rocked it. When I was job hunting my husband kept telling me that as long as it helps us take care of the bills and keep us a float that is still a step towards the dream job. Congrats again!
