I was going to jump on and write a quick post but then realized I wasn’t on WordPress at all yesterday except for a bit in the morning so I missed reading through all my favorite blogs….so one hour later I am writing.
Actually, I had some job progress today. One of the jobs I applied for sent me over some essay questions I need to answer by Monday morning and since I’m without a job or plans for the day I should be able to get them done today but I’ve managed to completely freak myself out over the process.
The questions ask about a field where I have no experience so I’m researching a bit but I’m also answering honestly. It’s a community corrections officer position (parole or probation officer), which is something I’ve been talking about doing for the last several years now but I become more nervous each time I come closer to the job.
I know this is an entry level position that will provide training but it still scares me. I have to remind myself anything new is scary so at this stage I’m putting my best foot forward and seeing what happens. I really want to finish the essay questions today so I don’t have to stress about it over the weekend…..I’ll just be stressing about waiting to hear back next week 😉
I’m going to close all my browser windows and finish up these questions (there’s only 4) but I’ll be back tonight to share my hike yesterday. I ended up going someplace completely new. It was challenging, exhausting, and super fun 🙂
