Life is Good...

Especially if you have a banana...Oh, wait, that's not my post...I blame Lea! I've had bananas on the brain since I read her post that she was going to do a post on Banana Eating Etiquette! Hmmm, I can only imagine how entertaining that one's going to be to read!! :)


Anyway, on to something more serious (as if the art of eating a banana is not serious!) It's official! I faxed back my acceptance letter for the full-time position at Ingram Micro! I have a real job! I'm gonna be a Reconciliation Specialist. I'll have my very own desk space, where I can have my own personal items cluttering it up! How cool is that? I'm pretty darn excited about it.

I've heard the statement for years when it comes to employment..."It's not what you know, but who you know"...and I have to say that in my case that is so very true. I have no experience other than the reconciliation I do at home with my personal finances, and the reconciling I do with the cash drawer at the mall. The lady who is going to be my manager at Ingram is a co-worker at the mall and she saw the potential in me, and is now giving me this wonderful opportunity! And I am so grateful for that.

I'm still going to stay at the mall two days a week, but school will be put on hold. I'd like to try to take one night class or an online course a semester starting in the Fall, since Ingram does reimburse based on your final grade. I really enjoyed going to school everyday, and there is one fabulous lady I met my first week. I was looking forward to the next semester and passing the time between classes with her again. I'm going to miss those moments of immaturity with her! I never laughed so much

Speaking of school...my first semester I got all A's! None of them were very difficult classes, but I'm still extremely happy that I did so well.

So life is good! And now I'm off to work...have a wonderful Sunday!

I'll miss you at school, but I'm very happy for you. We must make an effort to meet somewhere for lunch or something, I need a few hours of immaturity.
