Goodbye Alcatraz!

My LONG journey is over.
I finally finished my medical assisting externship, or Alcatraz as Shayli Johnst calls it, and I am so happy! It's the last thing I had to complete after all the class work and pass offs (which took forever), to finally get my Medical Assisting certificate.
Now I just have to find a job....easier said than done. If anyone knows of any Doctor's offices that are hiring let me know:)
It will be nice to finally be getting paid for working instead of just slaving away. Don't get me wrong, I really did enjoy it.
The Doctor's office I did my externship at was too good! I loved the people there. We got along so well and they were so kind and patient in teaching me everything I needed to know, even when I made mistakes (and I made plenty of them). I absolutely loved it, and I will be missing them all dearly. I already do.
 Working with Pediatrics, especially the newborn babies, was so much fun and I am so glad I got that opportunity.

So here's to my third, and hopefully not last, medical milestone, becoming a Medical Assistant! Woot Woot!

...Seriously that 7-Up I am drinking is soo good. Diet mixed berry. It's a "limited time only" flavor, and I feel that the"limited time" is up. The Doctor had a case of it in the fridge and that seems to be the only place I can find it. So, if you ever happen to stumble across it 1)Taste it.  2) Inform me of where you found it.

Week at a Glance

Last weekend we went down to my Grandparent's house who live just outside of Capitol Reef in town Called Torrey, Utah. It's this cute little town that I absolutely adore.  We celebrated my Grandpa Hansen's 85th birthday. It is always such a nice weekend get away, and I especially loved being with the whole Hansen clan.

Valentines day was just an ordinary day. I suppose when you don't have a significant other thats about all it can be. It was stress-free and unless i'm head over heels for someone, that's exactly how I like it.:)

Today my little sister, her friend, myself and my dog all took a little trip down to the lake. Utah is such a beautiful place in all its seasons. Although it was cold outside, the sun was out and it was a lovely day to take a walk by the lake and enjoy it's beauty!

Signed, Sealed, Delivered.

Well it happened. Shayli, Kristen, Steph and I all signed contracts to move out in August. We also got our confirmation emails saying we had been accepted. My mom started crying when I recieved my email. Apparantly I am a joy to have around.

I have a job interview in the morning and I am not excited. I am nervous. I hate job interviews. I know what I am supposed to say and do I just don't care for them. They are nerve racking. Of course I want the job, but I am not getting my hopes up. Others want it too. I did however feel the need to buy an outfit for this occassion and I justifed by saying:

1) If I don't get this job, I will have to go to more interviews and I will need this super cute outfit then too.
2) If I spend money on this outfit right now, it might help me get a job so I can make more money.
3) I am always in need of church clothes and I can wear this outfit to church too.

Pretty good justification if you ask me. It worked. I bought a new outfit.
I'll report back on the interview.
