I GOT MY DREAM JOB + MY FIRST JOB INTERVIEW // journal entry post -- my headphones died AND LOTS OF CAPS

September 14, 2017


this post is probably going be a lot like my journal entry last night...which was totally not 4 pages long. XD bc yesterday was well CRAZY. AWESOME. FANTASTIC.ya know what? *grabs journal* 

Dear Journal, I almost don't know what to say. Today has been insane...went to work this morning, feeling excited + fighting the cold, left work around noon, came home, left again for my interview at 1:20, got there a bit early (found books while waiting), then went to the circulation desk at exactly 1:58 to let the librarian know that I was there for my interview. FOR MY INTERVIEW!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

Wednesday, September 13th, 2017 is probably one of those days for Julia which will always be remembered...bc you see, IT WAS THE DAY OF MY FIRST JOB INTERVIEW and the best part? ITS MY DREAM JOB. AT. THE. LIBRARY. 



I tried to stay calm and be myself..but if anything, I was mostly thirsty! Some of the questions were easy to answer. Others were interesting.. like "if someone handed you a magic wand, how would you design your dream job?" I thought hard about that one for a moment, and then replied that I'd give the magic wand to someone else bc I like a challenge. At the end of the 40+ questions, I had to fill out at alphabetical and numerical order thing. They told me that they would call by the end of the week to tell me their decision. 

Like, k, the thought of waiting 4 days was okay to me. LEGIT. yes, I was planning on filling those 4 days, but still. I knew I could handle it. probably more than I could what happened next.......

I got home around 4:30 (had to run to the store) and my sister was on the phone. (don't worry, this will mean something in a bit) Well, around 5pm my dad saw we had a voicemail AND IT WAS THE HEAD LIBRARIAN CALLING FOR ME. ALL SHE SAID WAS TO CALL BACK AND I DID BUT SHE DIDN'T ANSWER. I was sooooooooooo disappointed bc I knew that phone call meant something BUT I DIDN'T KNOW WHAT. and, I didn't think I would hear back since it was past 5:30....

that's when I called my bestie to tell her what happened/moan


 THANK YOU FOR BEING THERE GIRL XD XD then..........

MY MOM CAME TO ME WITH THE OTHER PHONE AND I HUNG UP SO FAST ON MY CELL WITH MY BESTIE BC THE HEAD LIBRARIAN WAS ON THE HOME PHONE AND WELL I GOT THE JOB. i still have to wait for my background check..... XD I'm now a full time page. I still can't believe it and MY MIND IS BLOOOWWWNNN. Training will be sometime soon..not sure quite yet when.

I basically go on about how my neighbor brought over 5 boxes of plums and how tired I was and apologizing for my horrible handwriting...

BUT GUYS FOR REALS THO I GOT A JOB AT THE LIBRARY !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

My bestie screamed when I told her. My mom got out celebratory ice cream cuz she knows me. My heart keeps pounding cuz I don't believe it yet. I woke up and legit grinned cuz "oh yeah. I FORGOT." #me  My siblings can't wait to check out 5914985010485 books and then dump them back so I have to shelve them all. they joke i'm going to be like this; 


I just really want to thank so many people....so many of you have been praying for my ever since I applied back in July. It means A LOT TO ME. also, thanks to God cuz obv He knows me <3

btw, I am also doing the #7DAYBIBLEDARE (I started Tuesday) wellllllllll, I just caught myself reading a short story my friend sent me LOL SORRY I FORGOT #willstartover 

BUT TELL ME HOW IS IT GOING FOR YOU?!?!?!?!

and my headphones died last night. help.

  3. Oh my goodness, congrats! I applied as a library page. Twice. And I was rejected. So sad. Live the dream for me, okay girl??

    Those are some intense questions for a position as a PAGE. GoOd GrIeF! Nowadays, you basically have to have 25 years of school and a couple of college degrees just to fill out an application. :P

    Speaking of applications, I was at the car dealership today and a poor old man walked in asking for a job application (they were hiring.) Unfortunately, all the applications were online, which "wouldn't do." He snatched a business card and huffed as he walked out, "No wonder people can't get jobs these days."
    The receptionist and I exchanged an awkward glance before we both burst out laughing. Best car dealership ever. And they gave me cookies. ;)

    Okay. I'm done. :) Congrats, again!

    I think it would be cool to work at a library. <3 My dream job.....ugh, for like, life? Or just you know, when I'm in collage? Well, for a career I want to a professor of creative writing at a college and also be a published author and poet. While I'm in college....I think working at Sephora sounds fun (even though I don't wear makeup lol), or at my local plant shop. (Fealen's Garden.) I'M SO HAPPY FOR YOU!!!

  6. This was one thrilling post to read!!! I was seriously breathless during the whole narrative. I'm so happy that your dream came true. :)

    My dreamiest of dream jobs would be to work on a ranch / be an honest-to-goodness cowgirl who writes on the side. :) Thanks for asking that question Julia; it always feels so good to actually WRITE OUT my dreams. :)

    Have a terrific evening!

  11. Oh wow, that's so exciting! Congrats Julia! I'm SO glad you got your dream job. I hate it when people are forced into getting a job they disdain because they just have to do something. When you can enjoy what you do, it is SO much better!!
    And eeessh, those interview questions.... I reckon they would freak me out. :P I wouldn't know what to say. (Was it VERY terrifying??) You clearly did very well if you got the job so fast! Wowza!

    My dream job is to perform on stage in musical theatre (or just theatre, even). Broadway would be cool, but we have a "sort-of equivalent" in Australia, and THAT would be amazing, because they tour the country. Buuut, it's the type of dream job that's PREEEETY DREAMYYY. (However, I still play with it. For example, last night, my siblings and I performed a play that I'd written (it goes for an hour!) in front of my family. That was pretty cool. I get so pumped doing stuff like that. And it's THE BEST FEELING when your audience laughs at the jokes and claps vigorously at the end.)
    Oh, or also an inspirational speaker, cause THAT would be pretty cool. ;D

      hahaha!! I am surprised that I was hardly phased by them..guess I really am a nut. (and is wasn't VERY terrifying..more like SORTA lol)

      girl. that is a BEAUTIFUL dream! and whaaaaaaaaaaaaaa!!! You wrote an HOUR LONG PLAY AND ACTUALLY PREFORMED IT?!?!?!?!?!?! that is probably the coolest thing I've ever heard of. You should film these for yourself to watch later someday <3
      and uhm me too. *nods*
