Welcome to my Randomness XXII

Is anyone else as tired as I am? I don’t know what it is but I’m exhausted.

I’m planning a trip around the world. Of course after I finish my CPA exam.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Talking about a motivating factor…

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

The countries I want to visit so far: China, Thailand, Greece, Poland, SPAIN, Philippines…

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

So far… that’s it. Of course, I wouldn’t be touring and exploring. I’m planning on teaching English. Lord willing if I’m able to do so.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I’ve come across some pretty cool programs and organizations. I’m praying everything works out because I’m really looking forward to this around the world trip!

Wednesday I was called for an interview. Unfortunately at a time I’m unavailable, the morning. I can’t interview in the morning because I’m expected to be at work. So I go to interviews on my lunch breaks.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Long story short the HR Manager called me in the afternoon wondering about me in the morning. SHOCKER! You NEVER get called back after you missed a scheduled interview (only of course if they’re sales positions) Anyway! I was shocked to say the least and she wanted me to come in ASAP that day BEFORE 5pm. Good thing I was on my lunch break at that very moment (3pm).

I told HR lady I’m not prepared! I’m not dressed!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

HR: Are you in business casual at least? Hurry up and look online at the job description!

TALK ABOUT HEART ATTACK!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Well, as far as my interview intuition goes… I don’t think I’ll get a call-back. This was my 2nd interview… the Hiring manager said the dreaded words… Ok, well our HR department will be in contact with you.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

LADY HR disrupted my LUNCH HOUR to schedule an impromptu interview with you! Goodness! AND I wasted a perfectly beautiful paisley cotton printed card for you. UGH!

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Anyway, you live and you learn. I’m definitely getting my interview practice in.

Saturday volleyball: I landed on my left ankle wrong. It was bruised and swollen. BUT I healed up quite nicely and only when I accidentally sit RIGHT on my ankle does it hurt. Not bad… I suppose.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I’m going to talk to my parents about letting up a bit on chore list… Its kind of hard to study when you are constantly being interrupted by questions of who’s washing the dishes, who’s cleaning the kitchen counters/stove, who’s going to sweep the floor and mop, etc.

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

Wish me luck! My other alternative is to pay my brother. My sister already said she doesn’t have time… surprisingly that shocks me that she’s actually turning down “free” money…

* * * * * * * * * * * * * * * *

I’m still contemplating how much I want to shell out for the bro…but maybe if every now and then I buy him dinner we can come to a nice agreement.

This would be most helpful…

What’s the one thing you would pay for to get done and how much would you pay?
