interview

I am very happy to report that today the Braille Institute contacted me for another in-person interview! Yippee! I will be interviewing with the head of the department late Friday afternoon. This will be my 3rd interview with them, if you include the initial phone interview. I’m very excited and hopeful that this will be my new job, but it is all in God’s hands.

I did pray to God before my other in-person interview to please not put me through all this for nothing. I know God works in mysterious ways, but I’m asking him to please not put my nerves through this if it’s not going to go somewhere! I think it’s a fair thing to ask. ;)

Other news…

I got a haircut last weekend! Woot! It’s just some basic layers, but I’m liking it much better. Haircuts are pretty pricey around here. This one cost $55 plus tip! And you can easily find places charging much more.  Here’s the Pic of the Day from that day:

We’ve been having somewhat gloomy/cloudy days recently. It reminds me of Seattle sometimes, and I like it. I’m so looking forward to the end of this month when I get to visit home and help host Ivory’s bridal shower!

A little update on my post from August (here): I’ve narrowed down my career list since that post to two options: Grant Writing or Speech-Language Pathology (which requires grad school). Right now, I’m pursuing both. I have applied to an online prerequisite program for SLP, and I should hear back within 2 weeks if I am accepted. The grant writing option is already in motion with this interview.

Becoming a speech-language pathologist sounds the most appealing to me right now. I think I would really thrive in an environment where I can help people one-on-one, and be challenged every day. I think I would also like not being behind a computer screen all day–although there will be paperwork involved and I would need to write daily reports. Anyway, I’ve just been attracted to it lately, and I’m really hoping I will get accepted to start taking some prerequisites!

Although SLP is my preference right now, I would still absolutely take the job at the Braille Institute. Grant writing is very interesting to me as well, however, I don’t think I will actually know what it’s like until I get a job doing it.

It’s in God’s hands, and I am content with that.
