Ok, I know that I've been super quiet on SP recently. I've had a lot going on. Since I moved to Boise I've been applying for jobs like crazy! I've also been looking at apartments and bikes (because I plan to bike to work) and working out.
Today I got the call offering me the position I REALLY wanted and I'm so excited!!! It's at the hospital as a Patient Care Associate. The hours are great and it's a good location so regardless of where I rent I'll be able to bike to work. It comes with full benefits. Next week I have my appointment for the paperwork and drug test. And then I officially start on the 12th. So I have a few weeks to twiddle my thumbs (or look at apartments!)
It's great because this is the job I was really hoping for. The people are very friendly and it has a positive environment. Plus, there's lots of opportunities for advancement now that I'll have my foot in the door. My new supervisor has already commented that she sees me climbing up the ladder very easily given my past experience. And the pay is good. They're starting me at quite a bit more than I expected, which is great too!
Anyway, it's been a really exciting day and I'm so happy because I've been quite anxious this past week waiting to hear back from my interviews. So this is a big relief and joy because I'm finally taking that next step in my life. Now I need to find an apartment and buy furniture, all of which is equally exciting. So life is good right now.
