Job Stuff

Well, I had another job interview yesterday. It went really well and I am expecting to hear back from them in the next few days. I am still waiting to hear back from the other companies I have spoken with in the last few weeks. That's about it on that subject.

The First Pumpkins Have Arrived

So, after months of waiting and painstaking work I was able to pick the first pumpkins of the year. The one on the left weighed in at a bit over 20 pounds and is a solid contender to be this year's "BIG MUTHA." So, I have not chosen a name for it as of yet. The pumpkin on the right weighs in at about 11 pounds. It is tall, skinny and has a very hard time standing up on its own so naturally, I decided to name it "Collin."

Now, some of my beloved nieces and nephews may be thinking: "But Crazy Uncle Ryan, there's only two pumpkins. Will there be one for me for my jack-o-lantern?" Fear not little pipsqueak and dry your eyes! These are but the first ones to ripen up. There are many more of various shapes and sizes so there will be one for you as well.

Job Hunt Update

OK, so I had that interview back on September 10th and that went REALLY well. At least, that's what I think. It looks like a really great opportunity and they said they would be letting me know in about 3 weeks. That was a little over a week ago so I still have a little while to wait. I also had an interview yesterday. The company told me when I contacted them that they didn't have any open positions but they wanted to speak with me anyway. That interview went well also. They told me they would let me know if they have any openings come up in the near future and they would also keep an eye out for opportunities with their customers. It's always good to have a few more people keeping their eyes open for you.

Interview Update

I have a job interview tomorrow morning. I am excited and optimistic about it so everybody cross your fingers. As for the interview I had a few weeks ago; I'm still waiting. They sent me an e-mail back on the 28th telling me that they are still reviewing resumes and they would contact me "should further interviewing be requested." I like to think that the fact that they sent me that message means I'm still in the running. Anyway, that's the update.
