Thank God For Small Miracles (and the UPS Store)

I got fired from The Picture People back in mid May. They loved me, but my sales average just wasn't high enough. Corporate made them fire me.

In a way, it was kind of a good thing. I now had a ton of time to focus on writing my senior paper (and I needed it). Chris assured me that I didn't have to worry about paying any bills until I was able to get a job again, so I wasn't completely stressed about it, but I don't like getting things for free (unless it comes in a voxbox of course (; ) and I hate not being able to really help out financially. Yeah, I can clean the house to my heart's desire, but I'm slowly running out of money. I did wait until the end of the quarter to start looking, because ohmygosh did I need that extra time to write my paper! Things were getting pretty tight as far as money goes, but today, something awesome happened.

I got up, did my morning routine and then got all dressed up in one of my best "I'm-going-to-get-a-job-today" outfits and headed out to the banks! I had picked up an application at Kern School Federal Credit Union two days ago, and the lady said that they do on the spot interviews if they're slow. So I showed up today and INTERVIEW! Boom. Confidence totally boosted. I decided to go to Chase Bank as well since I'd already filled out an app, and I got to talk to the assistant manager there which is always good. Then, on my way home I passed a UPS Store and something just screamed at me "Go in there!". I had extra resumes in my car with me, so I decided to go see if they're hiring or not.

When I walked in with my resume and introduced myself I heard someone in the back say "Today is your lucky day!" They interviewed me on the spot there as well! I really did feel lucky! I wasn't expecting much, but they were very interested in my Digital Arts degree from BC. The interview went well and they asked me to send over a portfolio of my work from BC. I went straight home to get things sorted and sent them an e-mail. For the rest of the day, (this all happened around 12:00) I kept bugging Chris (jokingly, "Chris, make the UPS guys call me!"). I really wasn't expecting anything so soon, but at 6:00 I got a phone call....

I start Monday! It feels just like Christmas! I know I shouldn't get too excited about it yet, but, I totally am. I had to go buy a black polo shirt to wear, so I made Chris go with me to Kohls and I am now ready for Monday (at least physically). Chris treated me to Starbucks, and now here I am trying to keep myself from bouncing up and down by typing this (:

And all I can think is "Thank you God!" Today was just a random decision to go out, and a completely random decision to walk into the UPS Store. Hooray! Haha, I can't wait for Monday!


In case you were wondering, this is the face I've been making all day (:
