time to celebrate!

Break out the champagne, get some confetti, light up some sparklers, and bring on the balloons, we're celebrating. (Okay, more like I am celebrating).
This Monday I had an interview and not only did I get the job, but my now boss told me I was the only one she wanted to interview and hired me on the spot!!! It was an incredible feeling. For the first time, I interviewed for a job I so badly wanted. Granted, working at Forever 21 is awesome and I did hope for the job, but this one is different. If I didn't get the job I would've been upset and the night before I was mentally trying to prepare and not get too excited. When I was offered the job, I said yes right away. It may not be my "dream job" but it's a definite foot in the door. Yall are now looking at an extended day, homework academy teacher. I may not have my own classroom and I may only teach for an hour a day, but it will be well worth it. The school is a private one in Duval and I am hoping to one day get a teaching job there (crossing my fingers hoping).

So this Monday I will start. We're having a meet and greet time and I get to introduce myself to the rest of the staff, parents and students I will be working with this year. I cannot wait. Seriously.
I am therefore celebrating (on my own) with drinks and pretty balloon photos. Monday will be a big day....
And here goes working 2 jobs again. This time, I'm kinda looking forward to it though.

Thanks for stopping by to share in the moment with me!!
