Hello blog world! Exciting news today!
Today, I received an offer for a full-time, big-girl job in my field of study. To say I am ecstatic is a complete understatement. I was so nervous before, during, and after my interview, as it was the first one I had ever been on for a career of my choice.
When I received the phone call today, I almost fell out of my chair at my desk at work. I couldn’t believe it and it took me a solid 10 seconds to process what was even happening.
The sense of freedom I immediately felt knowing I would never have to work retail again, would never have to work weekends again, and would never have to work nights again hit me so hard, I was ready to run sprints around the mall, hugging random strangers along the way.
All I’m gonna tell you is that you might feel like school or volunteering or intern/externships are a waste of time, but they are not. All the work I have put in has gotten me to this point today. Keep working your cute little butts off. Keep pushing. The time spent and stress felt will not last forever. And the reward of knowing you did it, it’s all worth it.
All that is left to do is tell my boss, finish out these two weeks, and the rest of my life will start to begin. xoxo.
