Happy Veteran's Day!

It's Veteran's Day!  A big thank you to those that have served our country both in the past and present!

I really have the day off today, but they let me work today and have tomorrow off.  I am all about long weekends, and let me tell you, I have some big time party plans tomorrow like going to the grocery store and an elementary school carnival.  I am also glad that they let me work today because I have class tonight ( my school does not celebrate Veteran's Day, I suppose), and I did not want to be off all day and then still have to go to class tonight.

I did have a job interview yesterday.  It was an hour of questions/answers and an hour of a computer exercise.  It was interesting, I suppose.  Today I got an email for 2 online tests that I have to fill out, so we will see what happens.  I am also planning on attending a speed mixer (which is really awkward, haha) next Thursday, so maybe I will come across some job opportunities through that experience.

I don't have anything major planned for this weekend, just a bunch of little things here and there, but hopefully it will be a fun one!


  1. A speed mixer is this thing where a bunch of employers come to meet with the students, and they all stand in a circle and you get just a short amount of time with each person to talk to them about yourself and the opportunities that they have. It is kind of like speed dating haha. Then I think afterwards they have some kind of reception where you can talk to some people if you need more time.
