2015 hasn’t been too bad of a start. Today took the cake though. After being blasted by snow from this Alberta Clipper that’s hovering over NWPA at the moment, I came outside to realize that my car was buried, and I couldn’t get my car out of the parking lot. even after digging for many minutes. I had an interview at 11. Womp womp. I called and rescheduled for later in the evening, and took the day to be lazy and chill while talking to friends and looking up Disney thingies on Pinterest. I went back out later to attempt o get my car out, and I am now counting the days until I leave the snowbelt area (119!); I had never been so frustrated with the lack of snow removal around here. Usually everyone’s on top of that, but today…of all days…yep. My interview was held at our local bagel shop, to which I am a frequent customer. It’s also my favorite haunt to go do work or just chill out in a comfy atmosphere. I was offered the job on the spot, and I begin my bagel adventures on Sunday! And this is a runner’s dream come true, too. It’s the Land of Carbs!
On top of landing a job, I also received two recommendation letters that I had requested earlier in the week from two extraordinary professors whom I’ve worked with for the last decade or so in the music department. See, I’m planning on running for Kappa Kappa Psi national council, and part of the materials packet includes three rec letters. Well, needless to say, I read these and became a puddle of emotion. It’s AMAZING what the feedback can be from those with whom you’ve worked with for so long.
Yep. Good day indeed.
