Bing and the CW

This evening, as I was studying for my Anthropology class, my dad comes into my room and says, "Julie, look what you got".  I turn around and it's this huge cardboard box.  I immediately got up and went to open it.  I remembered that about a week ago the Bing Advocacy Program manager, Tanya, sent me an e-mail asking me if my address was correct in the database because she wanted to send me something.  I automatically thought of her and that e-mail. My husband assumed I ordered something online, and he was like, "what did you order this time?".  I told him nothing and that I was totally being honest. haha.

Good things come when you wait patiently

Wow! I have some good news.  Some news which I have been waiting for for like 4 or 5 years, and other news which has to do with a contest.

First good news.  About 4 or 5 years ago, I took a test for employment with the United States Postal Service.  I took one test for the District of Riverside and the other for the District of Santa Ana.  I passed both test.  Well, a couple of days later I get an interview for a Rural Carrier for Riverside, but I was denied because I needed at least 2 years of driving experience, which I didn't have. Now, years later, I get an e-mail stating that I was chosen for an interview for the District of Santa Ana (which includes Santa Ana, Anaheim, Long Beach, and City of Industry processing and distribution centers)for the position Postal Support Employee (PSE) Clerk.  This position is working in the processing and distribution center in any of the four locations.  It's not for a mail carrier position.  I'm excited because I did get the job, pretty much if you pass the test you get the job you apply for but only if you are called in for an interview.  So now I'm just waiting to see where I'll be working at.  I'm hoping I get either Santa Ana or Anaheim but it's not guaranteed. We shall see.

Good News!

I passed the first step to the Sheriff 911 Communications Officer!  I'm super excited.  The next step is the CritiCall exam and I have that schedule for the 20th of October.  Eeek, nervous on that one.  I 'm hoping and praying that I do good.

On another good note, I also got into one of the classes that I was on the waiting list for.  After e-mailing all the professors in all the classes I was in the wait list for, two weeks later  and a couple days before registration dates were over

What's in a blog?

That question I ask myself everyday.  I don't beat myself with it but it is something I do think about when I sit here staring at a blank page.  So once again I have nothing on my mind as to what to blog about.  I had so many ideas, but as I sit here and look at my screen I draw a blank image in my head.  Nothing comes to mind.  I couldn't even think of a post title.  I had to go back to re-write the first two sentence once I did come up with a title.  I know before you start blogging you need something already in mind but for me there's nothing.  Hopefully as I type away something will come up or else

I would like to share something with you....

I would like to share yesterday's Bing homepage image.  Their Labor Day image to salute all of the hard workers in America was breathtaking to me.  I just felt like wow this image is so beautiful.  I just feel like I could never do whatever it was the man in the picture was doing, just because it looks so high.  Eeek, lol. Every Bing homepage picture is amazing.
