    Um.
    I just snagged an interview.
    For something I just sent in my resume for yesterday.

    That is the fastest I've ever gotten a response to a resume.
    I almost didn't even send it...

    This has never happened before!!
    I'm kind of wondering if they honestly haven't had anybody with the right skill set apply and I'm just the closest thing they have... something must have them excited to interview me to get a response so quickly...
    I'm meeting with them Friday. Eeeeeeeeee.

    Lol don't be so hard on yourself. Maybe you're just a good candidate with a great resume and experience?

    Good luck!

    Wow, this super cute little ACD girl who comes to my work? She woke her owner up in a panic in the middle of the night, barking, clawing her arms, everything. Her owner figured she was sick and needed to go out, but when she opened the bedroom door, the entire house reeked of natural gas. The dog continued to "lead" her to the door and all the way to the far end of the backyard.

    She said her alarm clock would not have gone off for another 5 hours, and she has no system for natural gas detection.

    Aren't dogs the best?

    It was the most perfect movie everrrr. Lol I'm very satisfied with how it did the book justice.

    And even though I got home late, I still woke up at my usual time today, which is nice cuz I don't feel like my day is wasted!
