Dentist/Reject E-mail #1

This morning, I had a dentist appointment at 11:20am. I woke up around a quarter after 9am. I got a shower, and went downstairs. I ate some yogurt, a peanut butter sandwich, and had some coffee. I watched the latest episode of Teen Mom, and then it was time to leave the house.
When I got to the dentist, I was pretty relaxed. It was just a cleaning. After the cleaning, Dr. Barber told me about 6 month smiles. My bottom teeth are a little crowded and need to be straightened. The bottoms are making my top tooth push out a little. It sounds worse than I think it actually looks but, I agreed to set an appointment consultation. I am not sure if we are going to go through with it right away or not. It does cost a couple thousand, but there are payment plans. I made the appointment for the first week of March. I am taking my mom with me. I will keep the appointment if I don’t have a job offer by then, if I do then it’s going to have to wait. I am not in a big rush to have this procedure done, and I am not looking forward to braces.
After I got home, I got changed for the gym. When I arrived to the gym, it seemed a little packed, but it beats going in the evening. I much rather go during the day. I started out on a little treadmill, then hoped on a bigger one, when it was available. After an hour on the treadmill, I did 30 mins on the elliptical, then it was time to go home. When I got home, I heated up some food from Sunday, and had a little early dinner, then I drank my Whey protein shake. After I ate, I got a shower, and changed the sheets in our room, and I decided to refresh my e-mail on my phone.
Once I hit refresh, I noticed I had an e-mail from the University of Pittsburgh’s HR department. I knew this wasn’t good. I opened it and it was a reject e-mail, and it gave the position number. I logged on to Pitt Source and checked which application that was, and it was the Theatre Arts position. I can’t believe it. I thought I had a good chance of getting an offer. The interview went well, Paula gave me a really “good” reference, and I had familiarity with the theatre arts department. Well no such luck, I guess. I wanted this position, because it was familiar, and it was a good step up. I guess familiar isn’t the way to go right now. I do have a chance still with the Engineering Department, and with the other Department. The interview with the one department is on Thursday. I am keeping my fingers crossed. The administrative assistant who is retiring, and I had a great conversation over the phone, so we will see.
When Drew got home, he apologized about the position. I said, thank you, I am sorry too. He said, it’s a good thing that you have the engineering department and the position with the social work department. He is positive, but I could tell he is ready for me to start working again. I am too. He is at the gym now, and I am home typing this entry. Tomorrow I am going to go back to the gym. It does something so positive for me, and makes me feel good. I need to get a valentine’s day card for Andrew, before they all get picked over, and I need to get money on my bus pass, that is all I have on my plate tomorrow. I do want to say, that I am not sad that I didn’t get the position. I am surprisingly okay with it. I am keeping the hope strong for the others. Something has to give here soon. When he came home, we went over VLOOKUP, and I feel like I get it. I am not sure. I feel like I would understand it more with more relevant data.
