And the Countdown Begins....

Wow! What an awesome feeling it is to wake up this morning and know that in just 2 short weeks I will be done waitressing forever. Well never say never but...

I was talking with my aunt this morning and we were discussing how fortunate I am to have been given the job that I really wanted. I know there are plenty of people out there with degrees who are stuck in jobs that they really don't want simply bc they can't find something in their fields. I am blessed to have been given this opportunity; the thought is not lost on me. I am not a very religious person but I did pray over and over again to get this job. Now that I have it, I have repeated thanked HIM.

I know that I worked very hard for what I've accomplished but I have not done it alone. There is something else out there working in my favor. I won't name it because honestly I am not entirely sure what it is, but I must acknowledge that there is something bigger than me out there.

Ok enough of the religious stuff. I am so freakin happy I could bust! This weekend is exciting as hell for me. Today is the St Patricks day parade in Pittsburgh and that's a HUGE deal in this city. Of course its raining but the show will definately go on. Pittsburgh hosts one of the biggest st. Patty's day parade in the country. Just think next year I'll have weekends off and actually be able to attend the festivities!

Monday I get to walk across that stage and be given my degree! I get to show my family and friends how hard I've worked. I am gonna cry like a baby but that's ok. It will be a happy cry.

thanks everyone for the wishes and prayers; they worked!

OMG, I GOT THE JOB!!!!!!!!

So this is what it feels like to work hard for something, pray about, climb the walls waiting to hear about it, and then GET it! I cannot contain my happiness right now; you have no idea how wonderful it feels to know that in 2 weeks I can hang up my apron strings forever and ever!

Ok. So I called the woman whom I interviewed with today to "check on the status of my application". She called me right back and said that things were looking very good for me. I asked her about my criminal history and she said "I would be surprised if they didn't hire you based on that". Well there it is. Now can these people just call with the job offer so I can tell my boss to stick his linguine up his ass?!

I am so ready to be done with my externship. Honestly I appreciate all that they have shown me but I'm pretty much bored out of my mind now! I am only allowed to do so much. I do all the things that I know how to do and when I look up at the clock it's only like 10! WTF! I spend the rest of the time thinking about all the things I could be getting done if I were at home.

Did I mention that along with working my waitressing job, externing with the Doctor, I am also in the process of moving. Well it's only to the front apartment but still I gotta pack all that shit up! Seriously when this is all over with I am gonna need a day of pampering. I could really use a mani/pedi and a fucking nap!

Thanks for standing by me and understanding when I don't reach out to your blogs, I'll get back to yinz soon!

Cant this wait just be over already?

Man I hate this waiting game! I just want to know if they're going to hire me or not! I'm trying to be patient but it's so hard. Last night at work all I could think of was that it could all be over within the next 2 weeks! That my friends is what I live for: the fact that I never have to wait on another table for as long as I live.

As soon as I hear something, you'll hear it too! I want to thank yinz for being so supportive and for understanding my erratic posting as of late. Things will get back to normal within the next month or so, I promise! Keep them body parts crossed for me!
