    Smile I have a new job at Papa Murphys :O

    And I am going to tell you how I got the job... it's honestly quite awesome and I was all "Thank you God!" because.. it was one of those moments.

    So,
    I cried at my parents the night before I went searching for a job because t hey wouldn't pay for my college until I held a job for a month (I'm studying for my first year via correspondence). They needed to know if I could take care of myself when I move to Colorado for College. I cried, "BUT THIS IS MY LIIIIFFE!! This is what drives me!" and they're like -_-" But they were patient with my whining and something clicked in me. I mean, before I wanted a job, but I suppose I wasn't owning up to the actual reality and responsibility of having a job. Regardless, I now actually understood and had knowledge of the importance... yeah... comments, to yourself, about this. Right. I went searching that very next day. I looked EVERYWHERE!! I parked in lots two blocks from places and walked to the others. I mostly drove, though, and whatever I sensed wasn't right, I never applied. But, I ended up going to like 10 places in four hours, and the last place I pulled up to was Papa Murphys Take N' Bake. I walk in and say, "Oh no.. I don't want a pizza, I want to apply. Are you accepting?" Because they were all like "HI!! WELCOME TO PAPA MURPHYS!! WHAT CAN I DO FOR YOU?!?!?!" and, anyway, the assistant manager was all, "Is part time okay?" I reply, "It's what I'm looking for." she then asks "How is 9-2?" I said, "Perfect, actually." then she goes on to ask two more things, "How's monday through fridays and how do you feel about prep?" to which I replied to both, "That's perfect, and prep is fine." She then said, "Good, because we need someone now. Fill this out and I'll contact my area manager and get back to you as soon as possible." I fill it out, and I call her the next day.. she said the area manager had been blowing her off and that she'd call me back as soon as he talked with her and told her what's up. Not five minutes later, she calls me back saying, "Come in thursday at 1" this is late september, somewhere between the 24-26th... or something... anyway, so I go in for the interview and it was awesome we shared recipe ideas and all that junk and it was just fun. There was this one lady interviewing for a new PMTNB that hadn't opened yet, and she kept talking in a Scottish accent sayng to come to the Renaissance fair xD I was like "O_o" and everytime she would act, she would take a step back for every two or three words and it was just awkward.. The interview was over at about 2 and I went home... The very next day (it really wasn't even a day later because they called at 10 am) and it was Krysten... she said, "We decided to hire you, can you come in on Monday?" I let out a burst of praise, it was awesome!!! and I called back (because it was just a message on the phone) and said DUR, I can come in Then after being there three days, she tells me "Yeah the day you walked in I got a call from my last prep guy's military recruiter saying he couldn't come back that they were going to keep him for another six months" so they were killing for someone. Anyway, I think this is a majour blessing. Everything just fell into place quite perfectly.. so now I get pizza for 50 percent off Yay... and I get paid again this coming up friday! Yay for accomplishments. OKEY DOKE. There's my story.

    How's everyone doing?
