An Update On Moving to California

If you missed my last update about moving in September, you can see that post here . 


So I haven't wrote anything about moving to California since September 2011. I got some news yesterday so I figured it was time for an update. 


As of next week, I will have been officially on the transfer list for a year. Let me catch you up on what's been going on since my last update from September. 


In September after I was told that I was sitting in the 5th position on the wait list I felt defeated. At that point I had been waiting, hoping and wishing to get my transfer for 7 months. Literally a few days later after being told of my spot on the wait list a different job position became open. I applied and hoped that I'd hear something on it and maybe then I wouldn't have to only rely on getting the transfer. 


I didn't hear anything for months. Then at the beginning of December I got a call telling me that I had made the best qualified list and that they wanted to interview me for the job that I had applied for back in September. I was so happy. An interview! In my mind that was at least getting me another step closer to a job that I wanted and getting me out to California. 


The interview came and I thought I did really well. It included a presentation and I felt really comfortable with my performance and how I answered the questions. Two weeks later, the week before Christmas, I got the dreaded call that they had decided to hire someone else for the position. I cried all the way home from work. I was devastated. I really thought that, that was going to be it for me and that I was going to get it and make it to California. 


The only good news that I had to go on was that when I was told that I didn't get that position, that they really liked me and that they had another going to open another a month later. So when January rolled around they had another position open. I of course applied. Then I heard nothing. Well they opened it a third time and I've applied again. 


Yesterday, I got news. I am now at the top of the wait list. They don't know when their going to pull from the list but I'm at least the first person on it! AND I'm still in the running for that other position, which closes in the middle of March. They offered me a part time spot but I can't afford to drop down from full time. I would struggle so much financially that it just isn't feasible. 


So again... I sit and I wait. I know it's going to happen eventually. I just have to hang in there. Good thoughts, blessings, well wishes, birthday wishes, wishbone wishes, prayers... really any good thoughts are appreciated.
