i have a job.

you heard me. i am employed. actually, they offered it to me and told me to wait until monday to accept. which i will do, but i had already accepted the moment i saw their number pop up on my phone. actually, i accepted when i shook his hand and left the interview on tuesday. actually, i had accepted before that, so long before that that it is useless to even try to go backwards in time and try to figure out when.
honestly, though, this day has been a little emotional and definitely not drama-free. i don’t like drama. at all. so it wore me out and kept me from being as excited as i might have been about the fact that I don’t have to pore over craigslist job postings anymore, i don’t have to keep my resume with me anymore, i don’t have to write any more thank you notes to prospective employers, i don’t have to iron my interview outfit again, and i don’t have to worry about if i won’t have enough money to buy my mom a birthday present.
i may write a book about this experience. it will be entitled Get A Life: What to Do When You Lose Yours. because basically every college graduate loses their life. and people think they KNOW how to invent a new one, but they don’t. we don’t. we just fish around for one until something latches onto us, and then we pretend it’s what we were looking for all along.
it’s different though when Jesus is with us and we know it. because He really gave me this job. HE IS MY HUSBAND. and such a stellar one. so i keep plugging along, nose to the grindstone, trying to find housing and friends and church and schedule and new hang-outs, and then look up! and He’s walking right in front of me, leading the way, by quiet waters and green pastures.
i went to cafe caffeine on Mary Avenue today with jana, whose soul i love. it was a green pasture.
i also ate taste tests at whole foods with jana. more green.
tonight, mom and i sat on the front porch and looked at a magazine. quiet waters….
and tomorrow, fireworks!
