The GOOD news

Yesterday, around 11:00 p.m., lo and behold, I had four missed calls on my phone. Did someone die?

Two from home. One from a cousin. One from an unrecognizable number.

Hm. Greensburg number.

Dialing...."Hello, this is Robin Acton of the Tribune-Review." Holy crap. Internship opportunity. This could be the call from the newspaper gods.

Luckily, it was a voicemail. I hurriedly hung up.

After a night of tossing and turning, I called this morning and met Miss Voicmail once more.

The next time, on two rings, I met Miss Acton herself. I wasn't expecting this. The voice wasn't digitized. After speaking briefly with her, I felt the urgent need to jump and scream, but I was in Lynch Hall...I did it anyway. :-D

Yes, I have an internship with the Tribune-Review for this summer for 13 weeks. And I get paid. woohoo!

I did not want to post about my interview because I did not want to have bloggers asking me if I got it yet, and I would have to reply in the negative.

Oh yeah, the extra calls were from my sister. She wanted to tell me the "lady from the Trib called" and my cousin...well, I haven't followed up on that one yet. Let's hope someone didn't die. I don't know if I could smear this smile off of my face for a funeral.

Of course I'm thrilled for you... You totally deserve this opportunity, and I can think of no one better to fill such a position, Amanda. Just blow their minds. You are 100% up for it, I just know it :-) That's my cheetah...

Aw, you changed the title after all...

Anyways, like I said, no surprise. ;) You've still got those stars in your eyes.

I wasn't sure if someone would think I had issues with punctuation or not. I did give the Trib my blog to look over. First impressions go way beyond the interview.

Thank you all for the congratulations and sweet sentiments.
