Today I have an interview with the Girl Scouts

I am overwhelmingly excited and a bit nervous. I sent in at least 10 applications for different positions at different locations in the past few months. I want to work up in the company and make sure it continues doing awesome things for girls around the country (and world) while keeping the programming relevant. The interview today is for a community development specialist which I think is an awesome place to start! Wish me luck WordPress world!

2. The book that I’m writing is impressive and even writers think its cool. I mean, she didn’t offer to publish it herself in that moment but the encouragement from an already published and well-known writer means a lot.
3. Lauren is a successful, touring writer who did not become successful until after two children and 7 years of a marriage that eventually didn’t work. You don’t have to achieve all of your goals and dreams in your early 20s. What a relief!
