This morning, I couldn’t get out of bed at all today. I woke up at 9:30am. I went downstairs, and saw Dawson’s Creek is going to be on until 1pm! They are showing the final episodes, then on Monday they are starting over again with Season 1, Episode 1. I am so excited! I can’t get tired of this show. I made my tea and called my mom. She and I talked about my interview. She thought it was out in Cranberry for some reason.
Once I got off the phone with her, I drank my tea and watched Dawson until 11:00am, then I had to get ready. I got a shower and got dressed. I packed my interview bag, and then I was out the door at 12:15pm. I wanted to stop and get some coffee at Starbucks. I got a grande iced coffee with cream and two sugars. It was so yummy.
After I got coffee, I text Earl and asked if he was around to BS. He said, he would be either in his office, or outside with his bike. When I entered the building, I went to his office, we chatted until 10 mins to 1pm, and then I went up in the elevator to Fastest Labs. Once I got off the elevator, it took me a minute to find the office.
When I walked into the office, he was behind the desk on the phone, the office looked really nice compared to when I saw it for the first time. When he got off the phone, he shook my hand, and greeted me. The interview was very relaxed, and informal. He walked me around the office, and showed me the same procedure, as before. We talked about my ick factor. He understood, and tried to ease my ick factor. It worked a little, but on a scale of 1-10, it was about at a 9. I just never had to do anything like this before. He understood. I felt the overwhelming need to be honest with him about EVERYTHING, including how misinformed my husband was about my opportunity at Pitt and that I still have a chance. He understood and respected it. I just don’t know of any other way to be. I just need to be honest. We had a great conversation about what I wanted for myself, and what I expected from this position. He respected me and my point-of-view and knows that I am capable and able to do more, then the basic.
At the end of my interview, he told me he would let me know on Wednesday his decision, whether not I receive an offer. When I left his office, I went down the elevator to Earl’s office, and we chatted for a while, until about 2:30pm. He loves to give me advice. He is so funny. When he left, I left.
On my way home, I called my mom. I told her about the interview and my plan. My plan is that hopefully Pitt will call me here before Wednesday, but if they don’t call by Friday, then accept the position, assuming he offers it to me, but if Pitt calls while I am in this position, then I will probably have to have the awkward conversation with Chris and leave Fastest Labs. I just wish Pitt would make up their mind and make this decision easier for me. If they don’t give me the offer, I have a fall back plan. If they give me the offer, then I have someone who will give me a good reference as a backup if I should ever need it, who will be happy to call me if the business grows, if I find myself looking for another opportunity. I just don’t see any other way in this, but to be honest and positive, and of good character with this process. It only will do me well in the end.
Now, I am waiting for Drew to come home. I washed his work clothes, and they are hanging up now. I have another load of laundry in the washer. We have a pretty relaxed weekend ahead of us. Today, I feel at peace with my decision and where I stand with this job process, now it is only a matter of waiting. Yes, more waiting, but I feel comfortable and secure.
