My New Job!

Okay, so i was just reading my mom's blog ( and I realized I'm one of the people who also doesn't update my blog as much as I should. I don't think I have anything to say. But in reality, I kind of do. For instance, I GOT THE JOB!!! :-D YAAAY!!!

I had an interview yesterday for BTC Services. They provide the Heating and Air Conditioning in Commercial buildings. Well, my friend Miriam from my ward informed me that she was going to be leaving the company soon because she was moving to Colorado, and she asked if I had found a job yet. I hadn't so I said "No." She talked to her employer and then told me that if I would email my resume to the company, they would take a look at it. Well, I did this, and a couple days later, I emailed the company again, wondering if they'd had a chance to look at my resume, and if they were interested in interviewing me. They were. We set up a time for Tuesday at 10am. Friday they called and said they were going to be running late, and if I wouldn't mind moving my appointment to Wednesday for the same time. Since I had a lot of free time, I said that would be great. Well, Wed. came around, and I was nervous. I had set my alarm so that I would wake up with plenty of time to get ready, and leave early so that I would be able to find my way without any complications (since I've been known to get lost even in Orem. {night of the first pre-school graduation}). Luckily I got there five minutes early. I double checked my make-up, hair, necklace. You know, the usual girl check stuff. And I walked in. I will be pleased to announce that I walked in with a couple minutes to spare. I thought it would be impressive if I showed up early.

We went through the interview. And it was going okay, until they said, "So, tell us about yourself." I literally froze. I never know what to say to that, and I was so nervous that I think I said, "well....haha, what would you like to know?" I know that's not the best response, and I'm sure I said other things. But jeeze! "What would you like to know?" Honestly, if you think about it, that's a fairly legitimate question to ask. I mean, if they already knew what they wanted to know about you, they wouldn't have called you in for an interview. The interview lasted for about 15-20 minutes. and I was so nervous!! I went home, tried to relax. Then ran to the library, (which is where I'm at now) to the LDS Employment Center, (because I didn't think I impressed BTC as much as I had hoped), and then I ran to walmart for some gold fish. I love those things. I watched three movies last night; Ella Enchanted, Pirates of the Caribbean, and Toy Story. I was too nervous to go to bed.

So this morning, I woke up around nine, and decided I'd go hang out at a Carl's Jr. just a few blocks away, with my favorite radio station X96. I won a mug. I was hoping for concert tickets, but the mug is just as cool. At least it is now. Because as I was making my way to the Library to email my resume to Broadcasting International, a company my Bro-in-law Mark, recommended to me this morning. I got a call. I recognized the number, and I think I squeaked when I answered the phone. It was BTC, asking me if I would like the job! I was surprised, and I said "Really?" Yes, they really want me. I am so excited!! I'm probably ecstatic! Yeah that sounds about right. I start tomorrow at 8am.

I think I'm going to celebrate! Cale Logan told me I should share the news at my volleyball game tonight, and then go out to dinner with whoever is interested. I think I'm going to do that. Well, my time on my computer is nearly up, and I still have to do my exercises.

Thank you for reading this. Ciao!
