So my interview went well. So well, in fact, that they asked me to come in and meet some of the senior management for a second interview. The day after, they wanted to know if I was interested in the Business Analyst position there. I wasn’t sure what to expect from the job, but after talking to someone my age that works there as a BA now (and who, coincidentally, I went to school with for a couple of years), I decided that it would definitely be in my best interest to accept the offer.
They told me that they would have a formal offer written up for me sometime this week. Definitely something to look forward to. It will be good to get into a good routine again and have something to keep me busy throughout the day.
After deciding what I was going to do with the whole work situation, I realized I don’t really have any work clothes, so I headed to the mall to get some business-style outfits. The Gap was having an amazing sale (50% off all sale items), and I ended up getting the following things:
I know it will come as a surprise to you, but my legs are not nearly as long as the model’s are…so this skirt hits just above my knee.
A couple of cardigans from The Gap (each only $9.99!)…
I also got a pair of nice pants from the Gap originally more than $50, which I got for $15.00…
And last, but not least, a knit top from Forever 21…
Overall, my trip to the mall was a huge success and it actually made me more excited to start working.
This weekend has been going well, even though it’s coming to a close. I spent last night watching AMC’s The Walking Dead.
I never really liked horror movies but I’ve gotten into zombie movies. For me, these are more suspenseful than scary. And, because it’s a show and not a movie, there is more room for character development and I have already become attached to some of them.
I went to bed early, around 11 p.m. I woke up early and after enjoying a toasted blueberry bagel with almond butter (sounds strange, but it was delicious), I went to the gym, where I finished a quick three-mile run and headed home to water my garden and give Oscar a bath.
I’m excited to see what’s in store for me the rest of this week!
