I had a job interview today! And I felt really good about how it went. I'm hoping that Friday the 13th will prove to be my lucky day.
It's for a position as a bookkeeper at a school. The principal was warm, outgoing, and easy to talk to. And 30 minutes into the interview she said such nice things to me that I was almost embarrassed. ..Things like, "I'm flattered you want to work for us as a bookkeeper, but I think you'd make an extraordinary teacher...have you considered going back to school to get certified to teach? It wouldn't take long since you have an undergraduate degree, and you could do it at night while working days. I could even help you get funding to pay for it, too." And she also asked me how much notice I'll need to give at my current job if they hire me--which has to be a good sign.
I should hear back very soon, as the current bookkeeper is starting a new job at another school on Monday. I'm crossing my fingers and hoping I get this job!
Edited to add....
As soon as I hit "publish" on this post my husband came and told me about what's happening in France. How utterly tragic. My heart is heavy and I feel so sad for the good people of France. Here's part of a quote from President Obama in response to this atrocity that I wanted to share :
"France is our oldest ally. The French people have stood shoulder to shoulder with the United States time and again. And we want to be very clear that we stand together with them in the fight against terrorism and extremism."
