It's about time!

I had a light bulb go on today... I realized that the reason I haven't posted for a while (other than my exciting trip to Boise) because I felt like since I didn't have a job I didn't have anything worth writing about. Since I graduated I've done nothing but Body Jam, take a few pictures, and look for a job. I was getting so irritated from not having any interest or interviews from anyone that it was affecting my whole life. I've been really frustrated for a really long time and every little thing that went wrong just added fuel to the fire. A little while ago, I finally got an interview with a resort in Sardine Canyon, but after the interview I didn't hear anything back from them... not even a phone call or email saying they "went another way"! I was a little bummed because that had been my only interview since graduation.
Last week, after the Gandalf Extravaganza, I had a really great interview with a technical support company called Group Link based in Bountiful. Everything went really well and they seemed pretty impressed with my resume. Yesterday, I got a call from them asking for some references and examples of my writing and other projects from school. I sent them this morning and got a job offer from them this afternoon!
Seriously, I have been praying so hard for so long that I would find a JOB, any job! And now I've found one that will actually utilize what I learned in school and that will allow me to grow in my abilities. It's so amazing how things can come out of nowhere. I have until Friday to accept the offer and I'm still praying that all the kinks can get worked out so I can become part of the team and FINALLY have a job... and a way to pay the bills!
Thanks to everyone that has supported me and prayed for me these past few months. It's definitely paid off!!!

Congratulations! I know how you feel - this summer has NOT been the time to find a job. Good luck!
