The interview went pretty well... nothing at all like I expected but it wasn't bad. The lady who interviewed me first was really nice, and then the pharmacy manager interviewed me. I like her a lot, she seems like she would be an awesome boss, which is good cause Tom was awesome too. I'll miss him and everyone else at Dierbergs. I haven't heard anything yet but she's supposed to call me sometime this week.

New job! :) maybe ;)

So I have been thinking of where I want to work when I graduate. I've also been thinking about where I want to live. I'd love to live somewhere far away before I have kids, and can still do whatever I want :) So I would really like to live in North Carolina! Hello Rachel, eventually! lol I've visited there twice and I love it. And Rich did too, so that's a plus! So I've been thinking about going for a national chain so I can move without problems.

So I've been looking at Target as an option. Melisa knew about this, and since she works there she had her boss pass along my name to the stores in St. Louis. Nothing happened for awhile, but last week Melisa told me that the Target by me just lost a tech and needed someone quickly. So I went up there and talked to the pharmacy manager, told her who I was, and from how it sounds I have the job if I want it.

I told my boss Sunday that I might be leaving. and got his opinion on Target. Monday I turned in my application at Target, and then yesterday I got a call for an interview. So I have an interview tomorrow... I'm nervous but it's only because I havn't been on an interview in about 3 years I think.

So wish me luck... everything's moving so quickly!

my bday and more

My birthday was good. Well I didn't actually do anything on my bday... I had school and then I had to work. But I had the whole weekend off so I got to spend it at home. Friday Rich and I stayed the night at one of his friends' house in Moscow Mills. That was fun, but we got over there pretty late, and I was already tired. Then Saturday, Rich took me to get my car windows tinted (which looks awesome!). And we went bowling with his cousin in St. Charles. Then we met Melisa, Frank, Andi and Mateo at Ameristar. None of us won anything though... Then we went to Rich's friend Kadin's house for a bonfire that got rained out. On Sunday we had Mom's side of the family out for my bday party. I got lots of cute jewelry!

Tonight I think I"m gonna head up to Strassenbash with Leah... I haven't seen her in so long! Gave her a great big hug when I saw her this afternoon at the shop. I miss her, I'm glad she lives closer now, even though I feel bad that she had to move somewhere again where she doesn't know anybody. Tomorrow April graduates from Sanford Brown for her Medical Assistant degree! I can't believe she graduated before me, but I'm unbelievably proud of her for going back to school. I can't imagine going to school being a single mom. And the poor girl has to work all the time on top of that. And she did exceptionally well at school, either a 4.0 or something very close to it!

Interview cont...

So the interview (of course) wasn't as bad as I thought it was going to be! :) It was this cute little old man, and I remembered everything to ask, and my questions were easier than I expected.

Plus we had free ice cream at school today!

I'm really nervous about tomorrow morning... I have to interview a "patient". It's for school but it's supposed to be similar to a doctor's office, and the patients are paid by the school for us to practice. I really shouldn't be that nervous I guess, it's not really for a grade, just to practice, but they do record it to review with you later so you can see what went wrong. I'm just afraid I'll forget something, or run out of time, or whatever. It's just much easier to counsel when you know you aren't being scrutinized.

Lots and lots of books

In case you were ever curious as to how a pharmacy student's bookshelf might look..................

I finally got one so I thought I'd share! Only the top shelf has enjoyable books :)

Also Mom and Dad got me a mortar and pestle when they were in Arkansas! I was looking for one since I've been collecting pharmacy stuff, I didn't have one yet.

Just in case you were worried.... I passed my calculations exam! :) whoo hoo

Labor Day Weekend

Mom and Dad stayed in Eureka Springs, Arkansas in a log cabin for their 30th anniversary (which is actually today). This meant that I had Adam all weekend. I went home Friday morning after my calculations exam. Which, by the way, went well but I still don't know the results. I sat around with Mom at the shop until Adam got off school, and then Mom and Dad were in a rush to get out of there, because it was about a 5 hour drive.

Adam and I had lunch/dinner with Rich when he was on his break, then we took Dad's truck to my old apartment to move everything left out of my old apartment. It took 2 trips to get everything out of the storage unit, Adam helped with 1 and 1/2 :) Then I loaded up everything left upstairs that was supposed to go to Mom and brought it home.

Saturday I had to work, but I got off early because we were really slow... I met everyone else at Aunt Linda's for their end of the summer/back to school swim party. Rich came up after he got off work (and had a nap, cause he was crabby :) and Anthony asked if he could stay with us. So, Andi, Julie, Rich, me, Adam and Anthony all stayed at the apartment. Which was interesting :) Anthony woke up at like 6:30 and played video games all morning. I unpacked and such and took a short nap. I went to the old apartment for the finishing touches, cleaned out the sinks and bathtub got the little bit that was left behind the other night when I was too tired to grab any more, and finally turned in my keys! I'll never have to go there again! :)

Yesterday Adam, Anthony and I went to Cahokia Mounds because I promised Adam I would take him this summer. Every year since I left for my first year of college we've done something with just the two of us. We've gone to the Arch, the City Museum, Meramac Caverns and I think we might have missed one year. They had fun though I think. There was a guy outside who was flint-napping (making knives and arrowheads) which was interesting. And we climbed Monk's Mound, which is 10 stories tall, and 154 steps. There were several people who were using the steps to exercise. The boys liked that you could see the Arch from the top, even though it's almost 10 miles from St. Louis. Then I took them home. And I was very tired this morning for school....
