I didn't get called back for the job at Hollister *sadface*, which was odd because I thought the interview went really well… I was really looking forward to it, and I definitely thought I was going to get the job so I was feeling pretty sad earlier. However, on the bright side, tomorrow morning I'm going to apply to work at my local bookstore so maybe that'll yield better results for me!? :]p My fingers are crossed!! Pray for me, you guys!! I need the money!
On another note, I'm also learning how to spend time just being on my own without feeling lonely. I think all too often I would automatically associate being alone to feel lonely! Well, that used to be the case for me, but I've decided I need to get working on it. Tonight, I went to the library for myself for a little while and then headed over to an a cappella concert by myself, yet I wound up seeing some friends from my classes, and then a friend of mine texted me and came over to watch the concert with me! So, because I had the guts to go to an event by myself, I wound up really enjoying myself. I would have enjoyed my own company even if I hadn't known anybody there, though, which is one of the key things. I really love watching the a cappella concerts!! I'm going to another one tomorrow, and this summer I'm definitely going to take some singing lessons so I can partake in a cappella next year! It just seems like a great way to get to know some great girls (I'm not interested in singing in the co-ed groups, just the all-girls ones) and make some brand new close friendships!!
I'm just so excited for next year, when I'll have a car on campus (oh, and did I mention there's a parking lot right next to the dorm I'm going to be living in next year!?! Score.) I'll have so much autonomy and be able to grab my beloved Dunkin' iced decaf coffee with a flavor shot on Saturday mornings to help me wake up early and get straight to work! Which reminds me! Before I went to the library myself tonight, there was an extra credit event for my Italian class which was an International Poetry Night where students at my college could read poetry in any language! There were free complementary drinks and baked goods, as it was held in one of our two student-run coffee shops, and my friend from class and I had a great time - naturally, I ordered a hot chocolate with a flavor shot of peppermint, and she ordered a regular hot chocolate! We were wearing our beanies, and life was just grand. Next year, I'm definitely going to read a poem in Italian!! But I'm going to actually write the poem I read myself, rather than read that of a famous poet's and then I'll be sure to check the grammar and pronunciation with the Italian professors! ;) Wouldn't wanna sound unauthentically-American, you know!?
