Last night Pete came over and surprised me with flowers.
It’s not the best quality photo, since I took it on my phone and later posted it on Twitter. But you get the idea. The flowers came with a nice note that mentioned how proud he is of me no matter what, and that he’s happy we live close enough now that he can come by whenever he wants “just because.”
It was a nice pick-me-up, especially since I’ve still been upset about my disappointing interview on Friday.
This morning Pete and I headed to the movies for an early showing of Super 8, a sci-fi thriller that I didn’t know anything about.
I was actually pleasantly surprised. I never used to enjoy science fiction but Pete is a complete nerd and has taken me under his wing. The movie was set in the 70s and I immediately became attached to the main character and his friends, all of whom were in middle school.
I won’t ruin the movie by explaining what happens, but if you’re looking for an entertaining movie to catch, I would definitely check it out.
Afterwards, I headed over to Kim’s house where we looked over her resume, cover letters, and job applications and sent some on with hopes that she will be able to find a job at a veterinary office down in the Washington, DC area.
We also talked about some people we knew from high school and what they were doing now. One girl we used to be friends with just got a job at a public relations firm in London and I can’t help but feel extraordinarily jealous. Not only does she have this incredible opportunity ahead of her, but she will be relocating to London, the most amazing city I have ever been.
I just got off the phone with my dad and he explained that I shouldn’t believe what I read in the news about unemployment rates and how people are having difficulty finding jobs.
I explained to him that I never did believe that stuff. I always felt like I would be able to find a job right out of school without any difficulty. Clearly, it’s proving to be more difficult than I expected.
It’s okay though, because tomorrow is a new day and I will make the most of it.
