A little larger of space in the morning, because I was dealing with a lot of time management today. Everything decided to happen. :-P

Today I went to turn in an application at a pizza place, but since I'm pretty sure I'm getting this job (unless the head manager hired other people first, you can see this is totally based on skill :-P), a recruiter from Charleston called and I listened about a good design job and he referred me to the other hiring manager and he said that he'd tell her to contact me really soon. I've already sent her my resume, but I think this referral may push things along. However I feel the interview will start right when I'm hired for the pizza place, and that it will be awkward to schedule time off for the interview so quickly, and if I leave the job so soon... insane!

Well I planned to call the design recruiter after the interview at the pizza place. But I couldn't get the pizza place on the phone, I was supposed to be there until 3, but I wound up having to wait until 3:30 to start driving there. It was already 4pm, luckily I had called the design place beforehand :-P My grandmother even decided to pick this day... this day... of all days... to want to go grocery shopping. However, upon driving back home, I saw that my grandfather had already driven her to the store. Thank God! I had actually told her that unless she wants me to be running during the night time again, she'll have to wait until tomorrow.

I ran right after. Mean face guy was there, and some women cross country runners, who I actually caught up to, but when they realized I was catching up they sped up.

1 minute of walking, 5 minutes of running. This is the first time that I got my average speed below 13:00. I ran today at an average of 12:56 per mile for 4.18 miles. That's a 54 minute workout. 4.18 miles is nothing to frown at, but a 10k is 6.2, that's another 26 minutes at least of running!

Also, I hit 3.12 at 40:40. So I'm hoping that if I run the whole thing, I'm going to run my 5k faster on Tuesday!

    Woo! Just becareful not to play your cards too early, you might be in the position to keep both jobs and repay debt or save faster than expected or make a work around if you get both! If not, then at least you will have one :) way to hang in there! Your hard work will soon be rewarded!

    When it rains, it pours. Be prepared. And hey! Any job is great, but a design job is what you really are wanting, right? So if the pizza manager doesn't understand that...oh well. Great times today!!
    I did a little grocery shopping today too. I saw that my local grocery store actually carries homemade whole wheat pizza dough!! I may just have to experiment with that!!
