cross your fingers for me that I can pass a polygraph, psych exam, and urinalysis. If so, my income just might get 2.5x beefier.

Emergency Services Dispatcher! It's been so bizarre to actually apply to a job like that cause it's a REAL job...I'm gonna be a real person in the real world and I don't know how I feel about that. Am I ready to be a big girl? lol.

(i mean, of course, i am, but still. nerve racking!)

You'll enjoy this. You'll hear things that make you think "you called 911 for this?!" Itll be a rewarding job. Good luck!! If you want a laugh, many groups on Facebook with real stories from dispatchers.

I'm just a little curious why you are calling that a "real" job compared to what you WERE doing? You currently work at a hotel right?

I'm not being mean or anything I'm just always surprised when people say "real" job compared to what they are currently doing. I believe any job that you pay taxes toward and work your butt of is a real job.

Good Luck though!

For which company?? How long ago did you apply? I have a great friend from an old job, call center, who has been in process with one of those places for over a year and they're still not ready to hire her. I wanna say it's Lacey (not the city) or Loreli or some other such girly name.

Oh and good luck!

When I say real job I just mean the type of job that has a benefits package, salary instead of hourly, etc. Im not putting down the other jobs or anything - heck, i almost feel to young to be going into a job like this.

Missxzuri - its the call center for Kittitas County. The hiring process started on January 25, and i should have an answe in a week or two. A year seems really ridiculous. I hardly had enough patience to wait this long, let alone a year.

And thanks for the good luck wishes, you guys! Kristen, i agree that it should be pretty enjoyable, and since i never read or watch the news it will be nice to know whats goin on around town haha.

Im super excited...Ill keep you guys updated!

I am really missing rodeo tonight. I guess it's because all of my horses worked the pattern so well today[finally dried up enough to disc my arena and get to work!]

I have a barrel race next weekend...but....barrel races just don't compare.

ETA- I am truly blessed and thankful that I CAN barrel race and that I do get to enter up and go a little bit...it's just not the same!

I personally consider a 'real job' one that is more your ideal career path. Just a 'get me by' job could be things where you know you won't stay there forever but it will pay the bills and give you experience till you go off and get your 'real job' where ever that may be.

So the Ed Wright clinic was yesterday and it was... an EXPERIENCE.

My fire breathing dragon 19 year old seasoned veteran BUCKED ME OFF in front of everyone. And I did a belly flop right into the dirt that I am really paying for today. I also have a lovely bruise from slamming into the saddle horn repeatedly! LMAO

OMG Fancy was a pain. But I think we really came away from the class with some good knowledge. I have never rode so far "up" on my horse and he has some interesting concepts. It was good to just get out and spend all day learning about barrel racing, even if I was that "person" that fell face first into the dirt. :rotf:

Edited to add* I also had my bit upside down backwards and twisted. As well as my curb chain in the wrong holes. I did not have a CLUE and my bit isnt even complicated!!!

Aaah yes what Stevie said! I couldn't figure out how to express that, but that's definitely how I feel.

On another note, J and I have decided we want a wolf-dog. It is going to be fantastic. Unfortunately, they're hard to find in our area, and they tend to be quite expensive.

I like to think I'm not antisocial, as I do get along with everyone. But the SO laughs at me because I don't "hang out" with anyone. He's right, I have no friends.

Yeah I have two girlfriends from high school that I hang out with occasionally, but not like every week or anything... Then of course I'm friends with all of Alex's friends and we hang out almost every weekend and one of the guys has a fianc? who I like, but we never hang out just us two...

I also have a few girlfriends at work, but we never really hang out outside of work...

Alex is my best friend, so I spend a lot of my time with him!

The only legit friends I have within an hour radius are boys. My girls in this area have kids, husbands, & are too busy. I feel like we've grown apart because we are in such opposite stages in life.. My very best friends are scattered between central Arkansas & Miami, FL(she just moved there last week!) so it kinda sucks... But hanging with the boys isn't all that bad.

I have a couple pretty good girlfriends, def people I could call in the middle of the night if I had a problem, but we don't hang out all the time.

In other news, stress might kill me. This morning when I left J's and less than a mile down the road my check engine light came on, I probably should have just turned around, called in to work, and cuddled back up in bed with him, because the day did NOT get any better. My pony worked good though.

A cat rescue and a very amazing couples house burned down here last night :( not all the cats made it out and the couple lost everything. It's really terrible. What's more terrible is, this is probably the sixth house fire this year. Most of the fires have been arson too. Not to mention the two grass fires we had in the same day. Ugh

I don't really have "friends" either. I hang out with a bunch of girls since I'm in cosmetology school..but we mostly only hang out at school. Other than that I'm with my family or my boyfriend's family. Most of the time, my best friendship is the one with my bed. I normally go to bed by 8 (which is another reason why I don't hang out with anyone, haha)

So a couple of years ago I was invited, along with the guy I was with at the time, to a Viennese ball. We learned how to dance, went to the ball, and had a freakin BLAST.

A couple of weeks ago my mom mentioned that she ran into the couple who had invited us (they are members of the Seattle Austria Club, which is the organization that puts on the ball). She says they talked about me and she told them I was still dancing and loving it and she said the guy said maybe they'd invite me to another.

And now that I'm thinking about it I REALLY WANT TO GO. It was a TON of fun and I REALLY want to do it again. But I haven't heard from them yet. Last time they invited us sometime during February. The ball is in April, so it's not like it's too late for them to invite us, but I still worry that they wanted to but either forgot or don't know how to get ahold of me (they knew me through my ex-boyfriend, so last time they were communicating through him). So I'm tempted to seek them out and see what happens. Idk though. My mom will be here this weekend though, so I'll ask her about it, and pry for details about how sure he sounded when he said maybe he should invite me again.

I think it would be really fun, and I really hope J is down if we do get invited. I know he'd be at least a little skeptical cause he's not a dancer, but I think the lure of the AMAZING food they serve will definitely help, and I think since I so desperately want to go he'll definitely cave. I can teach him a few things about waltz and foxtrot, go back to Ed and Mary (host couple) for a refresher on Viennese waltz and polka, and tell him that we can drive separately so if he is having an absolutely terrible time we can leave early.

gah i want so badly to go again. It was such an amazing time. and if i get this job i'm so close to having the offer on, i'll be able to afford a legit dress. (last year i borrowed a friend's prom dress that only kind of fit and only kind of fit in.)

I say you go for it and seek them out! We have to be our own advocates... Also, people get busy and stuff slips their mind, so maybe they meant to call you but never got around to it. The worst they say is no.
