I love my new job!

Can I just say, I love my new job!! I know today was only my second day, but the first few weeks at a job are supposed to be the worst and if that is true, then I landed the best job ever! Every one in this office is just so nice! They are friendly with me, show me things, and make me feel welcome. They keep telling me how glad they are to have me, and the office environment itself is pretty laid back. The work itself is also pretty awesome. The students do most of the work themselves, getting documentation of their disability and we just meet with them to help them coordinate with their professors and make sure they know we are there to help them.

Case in point: the director came up to me today to give me this: a name tag just like everyone else in the office has! She said she had it in her desk for the past couple of weeks. Can you believe it!! This is what it is like to feel wanted and appreciated instead of gum on the bottom of someone's shoe (see blogs about past internship experiences). Seriously I almost cried when she gave it to me. I told her I had to take it home to show it to my husband and she kind of laughed and told me that I'm getting business cards too. Now I really am going to cry :) What a huge blessing this placement is. Even if I don't end up with a job at graduation, these next few months will be heaven compared to the last two years of graduate school. Thank you Heavenly Father, you know I needed to catch a break :)

Virginia, you are such a special girl and I love it when things go right for you. You have been through internship nightmare and now, it's as though you are at the end of a very bright rainbow :)

Yay, congrats, that's so awesome!!! And fun about the callings. I always wanted to serve in the YW b/c my YW leaders played such a big role in my life as a youth. They still hold a special place in my heart. Come to think of it, I always hoped I would never be called to the Primary, and look at me now. I guess I need this...
