This is easy as lovers go
yesterday went from a really crummy day|
to being pretty flippin awesome!
to start it all off, i was pretty tired at my first job
and when i went to my second job, the people didnt help
lots of people yelling over the phone for no reason
which usually gets me excited, because i very much enjoy
having an overly kind tone of voice with those types of people
but after about 10 calls back to back, and 3 of them
going wrong because i could not help them
i got really tired!
so i did some work elsewhere
and decided to check my email during my break
i got a response from the chief instructor at UD
and he said that he had already chosen, and hired,
another part-time instructor for the full-time position
okay... so, what you're saying is that my two years
of waiting for a full-time position meant nothing?
okay, granted, i dont have a great record with
the chief instructor, but i'm still learning
and finding my passion in teaching
and being full-time would definitely help me
learn really quick
but, instead, they decided to hire a fresh graduate
with no where near as much experience as myself
now, i know this guy, and i respect him. he is a great pilot
but i've been waiting for so long
and i would have appreciated something from the chief
saying, "oh, by the way, you are not on the top of my list, cya!"
instead of sticking around for so long
with hopes of being hired full-time...
of course, there isnt really anywhere else i could have gone...
except to be in oklahoma already
this doesnt really change anything,
because i am all prepared to move to oklahoma
it just makes me a bit angry that i worked so hard
to get somewhere, and never made it
but... thats life, and all i can do is
get up and get right back in the race.
they know now that my passion is teaching
and my goal is to return to Dubuque
this is my home
and the great adventure church is my family
and i cant wait to come back after a year
i know that God is going to do exciting things
i just pray that i can be more trusting
that i have been in the past few weeks
because i've definitely worried about things a bit
i got a chance to talk to some people that really helped
me get my mind back in order
and Anna came over so we could pray about some things
as well as practice the song that we will be singing
at a wedding that is quickly approaching(not really)
but we need to get some practice in before i leave
because she helped me realize that we wont be able
to practice when i leave
duh! sometimes i just cant think
this weekend is the Askren wedding
and i am really excited that Anna is coming with me!
we are going to the rehearsal on friday,
then after the farmers market on saturday,
we'll go to the wedding in the afternoon,
do something sunday morning... i dont know
and head back to Dubuque before Noon
the following weekend is the Duluth Airshow
i will be driving up with Brett on friday
and returning either late sunday or early monday
that should be fun!
hanging out with Brett, representing my alma mater,
and being around airplanes!
the following weekend is EAA Airventure(Oshkosh)
again, i'll be driving up with Brett,
but on Sunday this time, and heading back wednesday
i'm hoping to run into Brenda!
we havent really hung out since last year... at Oshkosh!
the following weekend i will going to a wedding with Anna
she will be singing a few songs
so that should be fun!
i very much enjoy the sound of her voice!
the sad thing is that it will kinda be our last
bit of quality time together, physically
for a long while...
thankfully we will have our phones, the internet,
and a few weddings here and there.
we were invited to lunch with KT and Christy this past sunday
and it was such a great time!
we got a chance to listen to them, and them to us,
and we got a bit of good advice about connecting spiritually
i'm really hoping that we can strive to keep Christ first
in our relationship
i've gone on way too long
then again, its been quite a while since i last updated
and God Bless
