A Carnival Ride

I went to the BYU Job Fair today and not meaning to brag or as my mom would say, "toot my own horn" I was HOT! There were seven interviews. One more scheduled for tomorrow. Three more phone interviews scheduled for next week. Two districts wanted me to sign a contract right then and there. At one point two (maybe three?) districts got in a salary/benefits/living situation battle over me and I found it necessary to leave when I was asked which one of them I thought could make me the most comfortable. Because I was creeped out. And because I never thought I'd see the day that Glendale, AZ and Los Angeles, CA would be in the same boxing ring.

But here's my point. I found out that I'm bad at making decisions. Duh. I know. But I at least thought I'd be happier with lots of options and knowing I could go anywhere. But, I'm not. I like to be told what to do.

I also found out that I'm smart. And that I have something to offer. And that any district should be damned lucky to have me!

I'm good enough. I'm smart enough. And gosh darnit... people like me!

Sweet! I think you and Kat should both move down here. Then we could all get a sweet crib together.

Of course you're hot. I could have told you that.
