Where are you, girl?? I want to know how the interview went! Don't you know that your fans await?!?!
i have fans
the world is clearly ending
Yeah no, though, I was napping and reading a bit. The interview went almost absurdly well! It was a group interview/multiple psns/multple applicants thing, but half the interviewers seemed to know who I was from the last program I worked with in the military and they said I would get an offer soon! Though, given my current experience with signing a job offer letter and then four months of nothing, I’ll celebrate once I have an actual start date. ngl though I AM EXCITE.
Oooh my dash went cray while I was sleeping, didn’t it? Oof.
ME NEITHER! I am losing my mind one bit at a time waiting, though. The excitement has me freakin’ out, man! Alright, so I want to plan a bit…do you have an idea of when you’ll come and how long you’ll be staying? I need an injection of awesomeness.
I was thinking of coming up early on Saturday and then leaving on Sunday morning (it’s Super Bowl Sunday and you know I’m watching the hell out of that), if that works for you? Or is Friday night better/worse for you? It’s your place and I know you have schoolwork and shit, so you let me know how much time/space you need.
