Scary New Happenings

This is what I did today. One of my very dearest friends works at Adobe and invited me to their crazy Halloween party. There were hundreds of people there and the line to get into their haunted offices was more than an hour long wait. But that was ok - they had snakes.Yikes.

But the scariest part was this: about half way through our haunted journey (that included everything from zombies and a gory haunted Olympics to Neverland, Lord of the Rings, and Hunger Games) I got an email. It was from the March of Dimes. After my phone interview on Friday, they have officially invited me to come out to San Jose for a second interview. They said they wouldn't be contacting me until the end of the week...I was excited and scared and scared all at the same time.

I am going to go. For heaven's sake, 7 months into unemployment you start feeling a lot better about taking risks. Who knows what will happen, but no matter what, I am in for a big adventure. Cost effective means I will drive out there this coming Monday. I will interview, maybe see some sights in my old hometown,  hopefully spend a couple of days with some really big redwood trees, and then I will come home. And then maybe my life will change. Drastically. Or it will stay the same, and that is ok, too.

All we can do is wait and see.

Scary. :)
