Its happened! And with only a week to spare. I got a full time job with the Blackfoot Morning News as a graphic designer/ paginator. Its a Full time real job. Its Crazy. Tuesay , my wife told me aobut this job in Blackfoot that she heard about from a member of the credit union she works at. Her mother also clipped the add out of the paper for me and sent in home with Mallory. I then applied tuesady night for the Job.Wednesday Morning I had an email waiting for me bright and early saying they were interested in having an interview, so I set it up for later that day (Wednesday)After I hung up the phone with him I realized I didnt have a pyhsical copy of my portfolio to show him. SO I scambled and got all the files together and reprinted just in time for the 2:30 appointment. It was a hectic day for sure. Then He told me that he would be calling me the next day to let me know if they were going to go with me or not. So Thursday I was watching my cell phone like it was the toaster... just waiting... But most of the day past without any incident so I started to get a little down thinking that they had forgotten about me and that all was lost. I was in class in the spori basement from 3-6 so I had no reception, and when I left for my car I noticed that I had 2new messages. I was Leonard for the Morning news wanting me to call him. So I did and I started my first day today. I twent great and Im really looking forward to the job. I still have to finish my classes this next week so I will be working around them at the newspaper. Its so nice to have a little security at last. SO thats whats new.

Pay your respects. I got you that job, and your skill and ability had nothing to do with it.
