Naperville, Illinois

Starting June 8, 2012, I will be an official resident of the Naperville community. Also known as the suburbs of Chicago. Does that mean? Why yes, yes it does. I GOT A NANNY JOB!! I googled the city so I could prepare myself for what to expect and my jaw dropped. Look at this.



Gorgeous, right? I'm so excited to live here it's a joke.

I got offered the job about 2 hours ago. I'm going to be working for a family with three kids. Two girls and one boy, ages 8, 5, and 4. I got to meet the family over Skype and they seem like people I could get along with great. I can't wait to meet them in person.

I think the only thing I'm super worried about would be a culture shock so to speak. Utah is such a unique state. Growing up here, I'm not going to know how to handle the city and stuff like that. It's a completely different lifestyle out there! I think it's going to be a really great experience for me, though. It'll teach me a lot.

Moving On And Out

I have fantastic and exciting news. I've officially been accepted by a nanny agency to represent me! It's an agency called Choose The Right Nanny. They're an LDS based agency and they are excellent. They've been doing everything they can to find me a family, and the first day I was with them, I got an interview! A family from New York was interested in me and I have a phone interview with them next week. If they like me, they'll fly me out for a weekend to spend time with them to see if I am a good fit with their family. If they like me, and I like them, then I'm moving to Manhattan!

There are 3 other family options in San Fransisco, Chicago, and Florida as well. I would like to work on the East Coast, but I'm keeping all of my options open. Any experience will be great and I'm so excited!

This is something I've always been interested in, and the fact that it's happening, is awesome. I went after something I wanted, and made sure I got it. I seriously cannot wait to see what this year brings. Wish me luck!

Laugh So You Don't Cry

My heart hurts today. I no longer work at PG High. It's been very emotional for me. It was the best job I ever had so far. I absolutely adored it.

I just went from having two jobs... To no jobs. I'm really regretting my decisions. I just lost my students, and left my clients. I have no one now. I feel so sad. I've already applied for new jobs, but the thought of working SO hard and SO much, to not at all, is really killing me. I WANT to work. I CANNOT be unemployed. It's not an option.

I've really been trying to stay positive and keep my mind off it, but it's so hard. That job was no joke what I looked forward to everyday. I miss it so much already.

I know life needs to go on. I can't dwell on this or it'll just hold me back. I need to take this as an opportunity to find a new job I love just as much. Life changes. Even if you don't want it to. I can learn from this and grow stronger because of it. It was a great experience working there. I learned so much. I can't wait to put my newly learned skills to the test and use them to excel in my performance for my next job.

Working at Pleasant Grove High School was literally a blessing in my life. I'll never forget it.
