The holding pattern has ceased.
I was offered 2 positions and have chosen one.
I have turned down the awesome role in the musical.
The first position was a job as an office assistant to a psychiatrist. While slightly appealing in some very minor ways, I decided against this offer.
On Friday afternoon, I got a call from Human Resources at Gordon-Conwell telling me that although they were very impressed with me, I was not selected for the job in Registration. However, if I would like to come in that afternoon for an interview, there is another office who has heard about me and would like to interview me. I let them know that I would love to come but had a deadline by Monday to make a decision about the psychiatrist job. I went in for the interview, loved the people, and got called before I even got back home that I was offered the position. As it turns out, the first office I had interviewed with had given me a glowing recommendation to this new office, who promptly told HR that if I didn't get hired for the job in Registration, they would like to interview me in the Financial office.
I am now the Cashier at Gordon-Conwell.
I start Monday and I couldn't be happier.
Well, except for actually having to dress like an adult and losing free laundry access at Casa Baird.
God works in crazy ways.
After all of this job nonsense, I turned down the role in the musical. I'm still a little bummed about this - i've been wanting to get back into theater for a while, and was so excited to be offered a part. (I'm learning more and more how difficult it is to turn down people who compliment you and encourage your ego.) But I just never really had peace about doing the show. I kept telling myself, "it's only 3 months, it's only 3 months," but it would have meant missing out on a lot of crucial community, and i'm already coming out of a summer where I haven't felt like i've been in any kind of groove lately. I'm feeling the need to get back into that groove - and starting a new job and a new musical in the same week just wasn't going to help that. I'll probably go audition again sometime soon - and pray for a schedule and timing that works better. I'm also still waiting on this CD to get finished, and when it does I want to be free to promote it and play out and all that jazz.
So I followed David Burke's advice: "No peace, no go." At least now I know I can do it, and there are options out there for me - this just wasn't the one.
I gotta go back to posting a video with each blog.
I can't say that I love rap music, but I love Heath McNease. He's hilarious and a genius. This one, not so hilarious. This one is rich.
