7 Years and Counting

Today I have official worked at my job for 7 years. It's so hard to believe, it seems like just yesterday I started over at the Financial Aid Office at Appalachian State University. I can even remember the pant suit I had went and bought at JcPenny because I wanted to job so bad. It was a way for me to get my foot into a NC state job. I kept thinking about how much I had spent on that pant suit in hopes that it would pay off. I remember driving the day or two before to make sure I knew were the building was and where I could park for the interview. I remember the walk into the building, meeting the assistant director going into her office, and then her proceeding to tell me that I would meet the rest of the office and have the interview. That will be fine, I say...

Little did I know, I was going to have an interview with the whole office! :-o
The office consisted of about 17 people at that time.
I will never forget my heart dropping to my feet. I thought that I was going to die!

In the end I got the job, the interview must have went smoother than what I thought it had. ;-)

I worked in that office for a little over 5 1/2 years and then was able to move to a better job that I love down at the Physical Plant.
Now don't get me wrong, if I was to win the lottery, I would love to be able to stay home with the boys. Or if I could afford to start my own business, then maybe I could do it. For now though, I like my job and will be keeping it until something major happens as listed above or they kick me out. LOL
