I have decided to acknowledge you all, my readers, from now on, as "The Masses".
How massive you all really are as a group, well, I am not exactly sure. BUT, I must say, to whoever reads on a regular basis, thank you. It makes it more worth while to type. I would blog anyway. Blogging is my morning coffee, since I don't drink any.
So, this week- actually pretty busy despite being tired.
I interviewed for the job in New Hampshire. It went rather well, and the feed back I heard from it was very positive. The only downfall is that the first words out of the interviewers mouth were, "we are not sure there is going to be a position, as there is a nurse on the fence as to whether she will extend". Well, not a direct quote, but that is what I was told. I interviewed anyways, hoping I could blow them out of the water. I believe that I did. The lady in the interview even quoted my Alaska nurse manager feedback to me and WOW! I have a killer resume and references, lemme tell you!
So anyhow, the interview like I said went well. She told me that I would be contacted this week regarding the hiring process. Well, it's Thursday, and no word as of yet. I am taking this as a sign that maybe this is falling through.. Usually next week is by Wednesday. Well, at least in my book.
So, I have decided to go ahead and apply at some steakhouses around the area. My first choice being Longhorn, since it is very similar to Lonestar, where I worked for 5 years. Next up would be Logan's Roadhouse, just a little bit farther down the road, and finally Firebirds, down the street. I really hate memorizing new menus. I don't like formal atmosphere's either. So, as my mom says, I am going top work harder for the money if I don't go to Firebird's. Well, the thing is this, they don't even open until 4 so the likelihood of me getting a job before noon is kinda not there....
We'll see. I just woke up, and my recruiter calls me about a position in Anchorage, Alaska. The VA again, and at another clinic. Well, looky who just did that? She put my info in for the job. Does that mean I will interview? No. Anyways.
We'll see with that one. I really want to go back to Alaska, and there are things I could go and see and do if I was in Anchorage since I hadn't the chance to some things in Nome. I believe I could live with my friend Mary Beth too in Willow and collect the housing subsidy. STOP SARAH, thinking WAY to far ahead!
But that would be nice. As well as a subsidy for a car, cause I am NOT going to drive all the way up there. No way man. I really do miss Alaska, but I think I miss Nome and my friends there over Alaska itself. We'll just see how this pans out.
First things first, I am going on an all girls float trip this weekend! (for others, you may refer to it as "tubing") I cannot wait, as I have not been on a float trip in quite a few years.
In other news, I have had a wart on my right index finger over the last 4 years, and I finally got it frozen with liquid nitrogen yesterday at the office. Hurt like hell yesterday, but is doing well today. Let's see how it survives the float....
Oh, and I am going to donate platelets today at Life Blood. Why I volunteered for it, I have no idea, but I did. I have to go at noon or one I think. I just know it's going to wipe me out, even though they will just take the platelets and give me back the blood.
Then, at 5 o'clock here in lovely Collierville, TN, I will be joining some girlfriends for dinner. Busy day ahead!
