This entry will be in the form of a list! Three big things I want to tell you all about:
1. Job interview! I had an interview today and I think it went pretty well
like the last three
. I should know by next Wednesday if I've gotten the job. The position is as an office assistant
like the last three
in the International Affairs school. My least favorite part about interviews is when they insist on telling you how great the job is. Today it was all: this is a great environment, it's a lot of work- but it's not hard work, we're really friendly, etc. Well, I've already applied and now you've made me want the job very badly, when there's nothing else I can do to insure that I get it. :/ But fingers crossed!
2. I got a card from my grandmother. It was just a nice hello, how are you doing, sort of card, plus pictures she printed out from our trip to London, plus a hundred dollar check. A random check for a not insignificant amount of money. (Hooray!) I feel like this is compensation of sorts, because they aren't as involved in my life as they are in my cousin's (because he lives nearer to my grandparents than I do). I don't feel as though I need compensating, but I do appreciate the help
especially since I haven't got a job yet
. I've already gotten out a card to write in return. :)
3. THIS IS THE MOST EXCITING ONE! Hear ye, hear ye- nano_haven
is officially up and running! I've sent out invites to the people who expressed interest in my last post- and if I missed you come on out and join! Membership is moderated, to avoid an influx of people we don't know, but I'd love to have you! Send your friends over too! As long as there's a connection within a few degrees (x is a friend with you, you are a friend with me) we should all get along fine! It's looking a little sad over there all by my lonesome, but become a member and watch out for the Introduce Yourself post. I predict lots of fun and shenanigans in the coming month!Wow, one sentence in that last paragraph that didn't end in an exclamation point. Can you tell I'm excited?
EDIT: Four things, I lied! I totally forgot about the awesome book I want! How to Survive a Garden Gnome Attack
looks pretty hilarious. I don't even remember now how I found it, but see the excerpt below:Although you’re fairly safe in open spaces, it is never recommended to follow a gnome into the woods should you see one leave the lawn and head for the trees. ... If you step out of the familiarity of your backyard and into the black hole that is the forest, your chances of survival decrease by 60 percent, while your odds of getting bludgeoned to death at the thicket’s edge increase by 200,000 percent.
