Today has been fairly productive so far. I got up, applied for a couple of jobs, then went to the gym. It always amazes me just how much a workout can improve my mood. After running three miles and walking on an incline, totaling a 50-minute treadmill workout, I headed home.
I watered my garden for the first time in days; it’s been so rainy here that I haven’t even looked at the plants in a few days. My tomatoes, green peppers, spinach, and one measly squash plant are growing–slowly but surely!
Last Tuesday I mentioned that my neighbor would be stopping by to collect my resume. By Friday afternoon, only a few hours after my failed interview, I had heard from someone at his office wanting to talk further about a possible opportunity at his company. I was watching X-Men: First Class with Pete at a local movie theater, so by the time I saw that he had called and returned the call, he had gone home for the weekend. I left him a message and this morning he called me back.
After making small talk and exchanging witty repartee for a few minutes, he invited me for an interview. He asked when would be a good time for me, and I noted that I am, “Pretty open.” Read: I am always free. So, he invited me for an interview this afternoon at 3:30.
I don’t know much about the company so I am off to go do some research but keep your fingers crossed for me. I hope it goes well!
