I’ll keep today’s entry short, because I really don’t have much to say. Not much happened yesterday, except that I finally got ahold of one of the supervisors at Sears. I told him the situation and how the other lady that had called me was interested in setting up an interview with me. He said, “Alright then, well how about an interview tomorrow…at 7:00?” My first instinct was to say no. I usually go to youth at Central on Wednesdays at 6:30 PM, and I’m not too big on missing out on that. But then I thought, “Well, I don’t know, I might as well. It’s easier than making him try to find another day.” So I said yes.
The more I thought about it, the more I thought that maybe this wasn’t such a series of random events. Here I was, unable to get ahold of anyone from the places who called me. I got a phone call from Sears, and then when I called back the next day, I couldn’t get ahold of the lady. The next day, I phoned again, and her voicemail said she was away on vacation until August 9th, giving the extension of a couple other supervisors as well. So I tried the one that seemed most likely of the two to cover for this lady while she was gone, and tried getting ahold of him – no luck. Then, yesterday, I got through and finally got an interview – for the next day. And while this means I’m missing out on youth, as I thought it through a bit, it hit me. Youth starts at 6:30 PM. We usually have about a fifteen or twenty minute devotional or something, and then we spend the next five or ten minutes sharing prayer requests with each other. That takes it up to anywhere from 6:50-7:00. So during my interview at 7:00, people are going to be praying. And I’ve shared the request with them before of needing a job. I’m going to phone up Steph today and ask her to make sure to bring it up tonight. Coincidence? Perhaps. But I’m not so sure that I believe in coincidences. I’m trusting that God has bigger things for my life than a bunch of random coincidences.
Anyways, along with asking Steph to bring up my prayer request tonight, I also want to ask her to have people wait there afterwards until I get there. I love Wednesday nights because I not only get to spend some quality time with God, but I also get to spend some time with my friends – Christian friends who are important to me. I don’t want to miss this time, and even though I think this could have been divinely planned, I still wouldn’t mind hanging out with my friends after the interview. It shouldn’t take too long, so I’ll likely just head back to the church afterwards and take things from there. All in all, though, I’m just excited to see what God’s going to do. He’s got something big planned, and I want to be a part of it.
Other than that, though, not much happened yesterday. It was a pretty monotonous day, broken only by a phone call from Jeff. He and Dave were hanging out, so he called me up to see if I wanted to do something. He was suggesting watching a movie, but he didn’t want to spend the money. Eventually we found out that we couldn’t find anything to do, so we decided to leave it until the next time we hung out – tonight or Friday. I kind of wanted to do something last night, but I occupied myself instead with looking on the internet for some cool card tricks. Ever since that night at Dave and Natalie’s house, I’ve been wanting to find some good card tricks of my own – as well as trying to figure out how Melissa did that one trick of hers. I honestly can’t figure it out, and it doesn’t help that I don’t remember exactly what she did. I mean, I watched her very closely as she did the trick several times, and there just didn’t seem to be any way for her to know the card that anyone picked out – and yet she knew it. It’s bugging me, and I need to either figure out that one or find one of my own. So far, though, I haven’t been successful in finding one that actually isn’t cheesy. Well, I found one that seems to work alright, so I might try and memorize that one, but I don’t like it all that much. Meh.
I guess that’s it for today. I don’t think there’s too much for me to do except lazy all around the house and be my usual grumpy self. Of course, I’m not actually grumpy, but I can improvise. I’ll probably occupy myself with talking to the strange people I meet on the internet (last night I got into a conversation about evil bunnies, so you know the type of strangeness I’m talking about) and trying yet to find a good card trick. Yes, it should be an interesting day, full of intrigue and drama. Or not.
