So, as you can see, I feel as if I am qualified for this job. I can't stop thinking about it. I think it would be absolutely perfect for me. I would be in charge of implementing programs and activities for kids, teenagers, and families; right up my alley, plus it is contains the health wellness aspect that I love. Plus, I would love to bring the Girls on the Run program to this YMCA.
I catch myself daydreaming several times a day about this job; what programs I will implement, what the people will be like, what my office might look like, etc. I am crazy, I know. I don't even have an interview yet. The job posting closed last night at midnight, so I should hear from them in the next couple weeks.
I am trying not to get my hopes up too high. I know that I am young and that may be a downfall. I will also be in charge of managing staff and being 25 years old may be a disadvantage for me. But I am keeping my fingers crossed and saying my prayers. I know God has great things in store for me and my career; I just need to have patience and wait for Him.
It's almost the weekend....
