Hard-Worker, Moi?

Well, they say it’s better to be lucky than smart. My life up until this point is proof of that. I think it can be argued that I’m pretty smart, but I’ve never been accused of being lucky. However this week has unfolded very nicely for me!

As many of you already know I decided last week that I should apply for that fellowship. The only bad thing about such a choice is that the fellowship application was due yesterday.

Becuse of this thing I almost called in sick to work on Saturday — and now I’m wishing I had. Of course if I’d called in sick I would probably have been wishing I had gone. It was a lose-lose choice.

Anyway, I got the app mailed yeaterday afternoon, and as far as I know all of three of my reccommendations were sent yesterday as well. Because I did the whole thing in a hurry and did it all by myself I knew there would be mistakes — I just prayed they weren’t glaring enough to be found.

Of course Daniel found them in his first read through this afternoon (I wish he would have come over yesterday to proof read it for me). But perhaps the topic will be intriguing enough to pull me through.

Enough thinking about the fellowship though — even if I get it (which I probably won’t) the work wouldn’t start until September. I need to figure out my job in the meantime.

Well, I applied for a position last Tuesday and I got an interview this morning! I think the interview went really well and I’ll know one way or the other by the end of the week!

So that means I might knoly have to do the night work for one more week! Now that’s a lot fo ifs, but I am totally full of hope. I still have to do some online job apps and get the word out that I’m looking during the rest of the week, but this is definitly a good way to start a job search.

Anyway, that’s really all I’ve got for now. I hope you all are doing good. Am I the only one looking for a job out here?
