Last weekend was the first weekend of Spring quarter. But it was also Easter weekend! And because I had a job interview in San Jose on Thursday night, I figured I might as well spend the night Thursday, skip my class Friday, hang out with Samantha… and then play it by ear. Especially because I was desperate for some (of my own) family time, and I figured, “What better time than Easter?” I told Kailyn when I left Thursday afternoon, that I had no idea when I’d be back. Maybe Friday, maybe Saturday, maybe Sunday… it would be a surprise!
Starting with the group interview on Thursday night, I was about an hour early because traffic was non-existent. Better safe than sorry. I was applying for a Teaching Assistant for the GalileoSummer program in the Bay Area, and the interview was a fairly relaxed group environment. Personally, I thought I did pretty well, but I found out this past week that they’re no longer considering me for any position. I’m bummed. I was really looking forward to the job and potentially living with Samantha this summer. But back to last weekend.
Post-interview, Thursday night was spent catching up with my sister and watching Law and Order: SVU. And going to bed before 11 o’clock for probably the first time in weeks. Because S had to work Friday, I spent the majority of my day reading my Economics book, watching Hunger Games interviews (etc.), attempting to rehab my knee, and doing laundry.
Dinner: On the Border, courtesy of Samantha via Mom and Dad! Thanks, it was delicious, and I actually tried something new!
After dinner, I showed Samantha the two “Call Me Maybe” music videos: the official one, and the Justin Bieber/ Selena Gomez one. We decided that we would reenact it, and make our own. It was so much fun. But know that Peeps are disgusting. I cut out the parts of the video where Samantha and I made that very clear. Enjoy J. It’s pretty entertaining—maybe one day it’ll be a viral hit. I’m kind of hoping not…
-U-Jam Fitness: where I learned that I’m super uncoordinated. But eventually, I kind of figured it out.
-Road trip to Sacramento
-Hunger games (again) with C, S, and Ben.
-Burgers and Brew. Bacon cheeseburger!
-More Law and Order. And my sisters falling asleep before 11 o’clock.
I decided to stay in Sacramento that night, so I could spend Easter brunch with my sisters. It was one of the best decisions I made all weekend. I missed them both and hanging out with them was exactly what I needed.
As for the job search, I’m taking an unofficial vote. If you want me in California, and hear of a potential job, let me know! Likewise, if you vote I go back to North Carolina for the summer, and hear of a potential job, let me know as well!
