Rollercoaster


Wow..this week has been the biggest emotional rollercoaster I have ever felt. Seriously. So I decided to draw a little picture to depict it all for you...CLICK ON THE PIC TO MAKE IT BIGGER

Basically after getting the offer I got on Friday...I knew I didn't want it. So I put out an S-O-S call to the places I really wanted to work....SW & SJ....giving them a deadline of next Monday. SW was my first choice...but I hadn't heard a peep from them since the interview. I had sent them references and thank you notes and stuff and didn't hear a word. So I sorta expected to not hear from them....SJ was my first choice all along (until I got hood on it and started interviewing everywhere)....and they knew that. However...they told me in February they would call me during March to offer me a job...and it never happened. Its now June...and they kept stringing me along. I get the offer from SW...and I couldn't have been happier. I ended up making a verbal commitment right then and there (shoulda waited...silly duff...). I'm hoping to not hear from SJ until Monday so I can just sorta say they didn't meet the deadline and I had to decide. But NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO they want RunninDuff bad! I just felt so bad because I didn't want them to think I was being insincere all the times I said I was interested. In the end I got 3 offers...got offers from my top 2 choices...and I couldn't be more thrilled. I earlier had a hard decision of ranking them based on options

Option A: work more (lots of nights on call)....make more $$$...and 8 wks vacation
Option B: work less (no call..done by 3:30 everyday)...make less $$$...and 6 weeks vacation

I ended up chosing option B for quality of life. In my field...being gauranteed to leave by 3:30 is priceless. I feel chosing family/friends/working out over $$$ is something I'll never regret. I know whats important to me....and thats what I invested my decision in. Also I don't start till November 2nd (I graduate Sept 13) so that really gives me a lot of time to get myself together before starting my career. I'll probably never have another chance to have a break like this in my life...without being preggers etc. I've done so much in my short little life so far and have never taken a break. The boards are June 27....then its cruise to the finish.....the only thing missing out of this ordeal was my Dad. Nothing like landing an amazing job and being able to call your Dad (Dads little girl)...and talk numbers. He helped me decide where to go to grad school when I couldn't decide and I know he woulda been a big help in deciding this. I'm confident that I chose what he would have wanted me to choose. I just wish he was here to experience it all with me and be happy I moved home...

I hope this rollercoaster comes to a complete stop soon...I'm ready for an easy life

p.s. didn't get into the NYC lottery....was thinking of maybe doing Vegas marathon? Or maybe re-visiting Disney. But I think its always good to do new ones...any thoughts?

I think you made the right decision. Money is always nice, but you also need to enjoy life. Six weeks vacation is awesome. Congratulations. It must feel so good to have the job situation settled.

I agree, option B is good. Money wont make you happy and being done every day at 330 is awesome! plus 6 weeks vacay is Niiiice!

I really think you made the right decision. Money is good, but you can't get moments with friends and family back.

And yes, your dad would have been extremely proud of you. :o)

Six weeks of vacay is still a helluva perk!

Congratulations!! You honestly have to do what is best for you. You can't worry about the companies that want you if you get a better offer. You have to do what is in your best interest and know that they would do the same.

Sorry about NYC. I have done LV and it is pretty cool and you can't beat the town.

Congrats again!

Hey there. Just wanted to say that I hope your day is going alright. It's a day to remember our Dads and reflect how much they impacted our lives even though they are no longer with us.

Hope you are well.
