I finally am employed again. I was recruited by Omation Animation Studio today as a production assistant. I'm so psyched that I got the spot. When I got the phone call last Tuesday and was asked to come in for an interview I was jumping up and down saying, "Finally!" I finally got the opportunity to get in to the industry I had studied for. During the interview I felt very confident that I had the job nailed but after the interview I wasn't sure. I was worried and freaked out that some how I messed up, whether I said the wrong thing didn't make a good impression something? After everything was said and done they told me that they would be making a decision by the end of the week.

Friday arrives and goes by pretty fast so I thought all was lost. Then the unthinkable happened, my brother got burned again because the lawnmower blew and burned his arm. This all happened while my parents were in Arizona visiting Chris my older brother for his birthday. So my parents ended coming home early and a fight broke out between my family and it was not fun at all. That Sunday my brother and parents spent all day at the hospital to make sure his burns weren't to terrible. So everything ended up being okay and he had to go back in for another look at his other burns.

While they were gone I emailed the studio asking them about the position and if it was still available. I then walked downstairs to make my lunch and then I received a phone call from Sonia, one of my interviewers. She offered me the position and I accepted immediately. I then jumped up and did heel clicker! Funny right I know but I am psyched.

My first day is tomorrow and I have to be there at 10am. That's fine not too early right? The only problem is the studio is San Clemente which takes about 40 minutes to get there without traffic. With traffic, I'm not sure but I'm going to find out tomorrow. So wish me luck for my new job and who said prayer never worked.

Side Note: I just discovered something wrong with my eyes. I keep seeing a small black spot. Great timing to get benefits right?
