Week 10: Accomplishments
Even a week ago, my accomplishment list would have been sorta short, and very mundane - graduating high school, graduating college, getting a job, buying a home, etc, etc, etc.
But this week? This week brought about a very powerful accomplishment.
I had my first "real" job interview. And I think it went pretty ok, too.
You might be wondering what I mean, since you likely know that I have an awesome teaching job that I love, which is true. I do have a fantastic job that I absolutely love, working with children at an age I enjoy. So didn't I interview for that job? Sorta. See, I was in the school for two years before I was hired, so my interview was more like sitting down with an old friends and chatting, and less like a job interview with a stranger.
This interview was for a job that would be pretty spectacular. I'd still get to work with kids, but in a drastically different environment. I'd still be doing what I love, even more of it, actually, but the environment...... can't explain how different it would be.
I don't intend to leave my current job. I love it too much. I wanted to go on the interview to see if I could do it, if I could keep it together, stay presentable, and survive an interview with strangers instead of colleagues I knew.
I accomplished that.
Now back to work!
