I've call most of the people who read this by now and they most likely know what this is about.
I have a job interview Monday that I am super super super excited about. Why you ask, let me give you the top reasons in order:
1.)It's a job! That pays! Woot!
2.)It's in my field of knowledge!
3.)It is with a rather large company so I have a chance at making this a career, one I take to retirement.
4.)I believe this job will help me ensure Gabby gets the best I can give her.
5.)It's in Wisconsin.
Did you see that last one? It's not first on my list. It is a BIG factor don't get me wrong, but it's not number one. Unfortunately right now a paycheck is number one, regardless of where it comes from. I have been looking for a local job. I keep hitting dead ends on that. So I expanded my search to the W states since they were my first preference. I would move on to CA, CO and IL next. If still nothing I would hit OR and the East Coast as well. But this does not mean I would have stopped looking here.
If I get this job it will be HUGE. I will be moving to WI (which everyone knows I want desperately), to a state where I know one person. Period end of story. Not only will I be up-rooting myself but I will be taking Gabby with me. That scares me. Gabby I think will do good on this move. That girl is a lot braver than me. :)
So here it is. I have a chance at a job I really really want. I'm scared I won't get it. And I'm scared I will.
If I do, I will have to move up there first. Find a place to live. Find a School. Then Gabby would come up, with all our stuff.
Do you know how scary and grown up that sounds to me?
So please. On Monday, will you think of me and send me the best luck you can. Shit pray if you pray, wish if you wish. I need a job. Lets make this a twofer offer. Send Mom luck too, she needs a job as well!
