*sits down and blinks a few times in shock*

First kids, lets go back in time by about seven months *makes the Wayne's world back in time noise*

I had just barely started working doing surface-mount soldering at a place called TASC. I was told first off that it was only a temporary position, and anything beyond two weeks' worth was bonus. I continued to apply to different positions and happened to get called in for an interview at a manufacturing shop in Mukilteo.

The day of the interview I got stuck at work late and had to haul ass up there as normally a drive there was 30 minutes and I had a little over 15 at the time. I ended up getting to my interview late.

The lady there was not thrilled, but interviewed me anyway. I knew that I had blown the interview already without even stepping in, but figured I'd go through it anyway just to get more interviewing experience and learn what I didn't already know about manufacturing (which at the time wasn't a whole lot). I left the interview KNOWING that nothing was to come of it and went home.

Ok, now let's journey back to this morning *more Wayne's World back in time noises*

So I started a new job last week. Not what I want to be doing and not at the pay I needed to survive, but it was better than unemployment, and another notch on my resume. Living off of unemployment was killing me and I NEEDED something to do.

Now on my second week I'm sitting and sanding parts, when THE SAME LADY from the interview walks up to me. She says that when she interviewed me for the other company she was so impressed with my interviewing skills on top of my resume and my qualifications, she had already given my name to her boss to offer me an interview for a Quality Inspection position.


This lady remembered my resume and my qualifications from some chick that showed up late for an interview SEVEN months ago? I was stunned.

After she left, I was then greeted by the QA lead, and he brought over the lady who worked the position I could be taking over to talk about what I would be doing and if I was able and ok with it.

I've now been offered an interview with the HR team. This would probably take me off of the temp position to full time with a raise, and possible benefits.

I am just floored. It seems that when things are their craziest and darkest, events are set in motion to bring the broken pieces back together to build something better than it was before.

I am in happy land.

Just gotta remember, everything in His time, not ours.

Or at least that's what I keep telling myself as this whole job search thing drags along.

Then you will say "Damn! It's about fuckin' time!"

If it's Monty Python's version, then I've been waiting for it FOR FUCKING EVER.

You just want Michael Palin to poke you with the soft pillows.
