Week 10: Accomplishments

Funny timing, this week's topic is.

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!

So? What do you think?
