I just got an email that I have a job interview tomorrow AM. This is important because I honestly can not remember the last time I had an interview. When you work for the Census you don’t really get interviewed you just get hired. I know what I am capable of and I know that I am good with people, but that doesn’t make me less nervous. I enjoyed working last year and I liked having a purpose outside the house but I do not like having work interfere with the girls, I like being able to take them to dance, and soccer, and softball and I refuse to miss games unless I absolutely have to. So I am hoping this job allows me to have that purpose as well as the flexibility to still enjoy my time with the girls. Working has been a huge part of my life, I worked for my parents when I was younger and always had a job till we moved. Then it was odds and ends for my step dad, American Girl, and the Census. I have yet to have what some would call a “real grown up job” full time with the pleasure of benefits, salary, and a place to grow with, but to be honest I didn’t want just any old grown up job, if I am going to work in a field the rest of my life I would prefer it to be in something l like, but that takes school and school takes money and right now it’s not a thing, so I’ll do a little of this and a little of that till I can get the school to get the job.
Although I am nervous I am also excited and that is always a fun state of mind, it’s always interesting to me to have the nervous sensation because it just means excitement and a little fear, it’s like right before the big loop or drop during a roller coaster. This is an area I haven’t really ever worked in but it’s customer service and what is waitressing if not customer service? I just keep telling myself I can do the job, I am qualified, and if I don’t get it, there are other options out there. It’s a fairly good peep talk if I do say so myself. Its not 1045 and I need to hit the hay and get a good night sleep so I don’t miss the phone call. If you think of it, wish me good thoughts, and good luck! I’ll keep you posted!
