plus one means waiting for THREE

No phone calls today...

But I still have news!  I'm now waiting to hear back from THREE principals!  I had another interview today and I think it went really well!  (But I seem to always think they go great and then I'm left wondering and hanging so who knows...)  It was at a high school.  This interview was kind of a little different though because there were 5 people interviewing me.  Whoa!  That is a lot of questions.  And I wasn't always sure where to direct my eye focus to but it seemed to go fairly well.  This school hopes to contact me (hopefully) tomorrow but likely at the start of next week.

You want to know what has been amazing with this whole interview process?  All the interviews the past few times (all three that I'm waiting to hear back from principals on), EVERY time, "Just the Way You Are" by Bruno Mars would come on the radio.  It never failed.  And it always brought a smile to my face.  But what really is amazing about that is I basically NEVER hear the song other than that.  Well, except for when Casey sings it to me A Cappella style or reading a text from him reminding me that I'm amazing.  And here is the best part, all of my interviews have been at random different times but that song has always come on right before I get to the school.  And no, I'm not controlling it.  I just have a standard, commercial blaring, hand tune dial (yeah, my car really is that old) radio.  But the Lord is controlling it and blessing my life through music.

A thing as simple as a song helps me remember that He is near and watching over me.  And really hearing my prayers and will answer them in His own time.  It also makes me think that maybe any of these 3 schools could be right for me.  Or maybe I needed all of the practice from past interviews to be ready for the one that will really matter and to have the confidence and poise that comes from countless interviews. I can already predict a lot of the questions and so my answers are smoother and more refined now rather than filled with a bunch of ums and uhs.

Tomorrow is going to be a big day!  The phone calls will come (hopefully) and decisions will be made.  And life will finally be able to be planned again. :)
