I'm Back!

I’m Back! I’m Back! It’s been a while, but now I’m Back with a vengeance. I like plans, I am good with plans and I need a plan or I put things off and randomly ramble. Spontaneity and I may be great friends, have had many good times, share some fun stories, but we don’t get much accomplished. SO, here I am with a brand new template (Thanks Courtney), a brand new title (subject to change), and a brand new plan!

Now for some Updates!

I made it to the last round (final in-person interview) for Teach For America and now I am waiting to hear back. The interview went well and my practice lesson went smoothly, but from my understanding you never know with Teach For America. Only 15% of the people who apply are selected. I don’t find out if I get a position till the 19th! I am quite nervous, but following the philosophy that what should happen, will happen!
The closest interview location happened to be New Orleans (one of my favorite cities). Now who wants to drive two and a half hours for an interview, interview all day, and then drive back? Not me. So, I recruited my lovely sister to come with me and spend the night. Two single girls in New Orleans for one night… enough said.

I got a temporary job! It is with the Census Bureau and lasts up to 8 weeks starting the 27th. Hurray!

A lot has been going on with my family lately. Most of it I won’t post because it’s not my story to tell, but it’s been a bit stressful. I have a tendency to worry worry worry for everyone around me. Hopefully everything will clear up in the next couple of weeks and my worry will be for nothing.

Anyway, as the week progresses I will be sharing some of my plans and I will get my blog rolling!

--In fact, because this post- intended for Monday- has been posted so late I will be posting again immediately after so that I now fit my plans!!!


  1. Yay! You're back, Cuz! Love the temp! So proud of you for the tweeks you made to it!

  2. Wow - Teach for America. I hope you make it into the program.

    I had a cousin and uncle who have worked for the Census. They enjoyed it and were happy about the pay.
