Special Delivery

No I am not pregnant.

I got a surprise present int he mail this week.

But before I tell you what it is, let us go back to last Wednesday April 20, 2011.  I didn't have class anymore I am done forever, it was a long, not so awesome day at work, and I was having a freak out/emotional breakdown about my future.

I wasn't sure the first person I wanted to talk to would be responsive, so I texted that person and I called my friend Emily.  She and I have been friends since college (which by the way ended 4 years ago today) and she always can make me feel more normal and completely sane in my worries.  She knows how to talk me down and that she did.  I am someone who doesn't recognize how stressed she is until it starts to manifest in physical symptoms {cold sores or just plain sick} and guess what started to form on Wednesday {gross I know but it happened and is totally stress induced}.

Over the weekend, I was told by several people that I just needed to calm down, chill out and things would happen.  So I tried to do that as much as I could.  Had an awesome Easter dinner and after dinner checked my email to find---AN INTERVIEW OFFER!  I have an interview with USBSF on Friday and I have everything possible crossed that it goes well.

Then yesterday came around and I got a surprise in the mail that I had no idea was coming.

This was exactly what I needed this week...  And I highly recommend it to anyone who is finishing school...  I am now going to force Jenny to read it--aka I might have to read the whole thing aloud to her--yes I did finish the book in 24 hours...
