Job Interview

Well I had a Job interview today at Fetzers Architectural Woodwork. I think it went good, but will find out next week.

The HR lady there who interviewed me said the only problem they had was me not being able to start until the first of July.. So I am guessing that's a good sign I have a job with them!

I also had very good letters of recomendations from people that actually work high up in Fetzers so I am pretty sure I will hear some good news next week (fingers crossed).

I don't know exactly what job I will be getting yet. I know project manager is a possiblity! also, drafting, traveling for installs, ect. I can pretty much do any job there, so who knows where they will put me when they hire me.

I really hope this works out for me! They have great pay, great benifits, they will even pay for college if they want me to take a higher up position!

What more could I ask for... Well maybe having it closer would be nice, since its 45 minute drive from my house.


Wish me Luck!

truck :)

i have had my truck for almost two years now on july 14th (crazy i know the date i bought it)! i absolutley LOVE LOVE LOVE my truck! we have had some hard times with it being broken into and all... but every other time besides that incident have been great!

I love my truck because, one, its my dream vehicle i have wanted a truck ever since i can remember. two, it really feels to me like a trophy! every time i look at it, it shows me everything i have acomplished. then it makes me think of everything else i am greatful for.

As crazy as it sounds it really brightens up my day every time i look at it

and to think it all started with a toy truck my dad gave me a while back.. well i love hot wheels so he bought me this little blue truck once, and ever since then i have wanted my real life hotwheels truck! ha ha so i am basing my truck off of the little toy my dad gave me.
(even the wheels, are Hot Wheels lol)

I really really want to thank the guys over at elite customs for doing this paint job and fixing the damages when the truck got broken into! it has made it alot more stress free! they did the painting for FREE! which is absolutely amazing! i dont know how i am going to ever thank them enough! and everything they fixed worked out great and the pricing!!! we saved $600 out of pocket with them and got a free paint job! wow i really really really appriciate it! i thank them so much for going threw all this effort for me!

the truck will be getting some more stuff on it soon, headlights and tail lights soon soon, then a bigger lift, more custom paint work, window tint, supercharge done ect. ect. I CANT WAIT

and of course i will be having ELITE do everything!!!!!

Laat me met rust!

it means "leave me in peace" in dutch

Peace is a state of balance and understanding in yourself and between others, where respect is gained by the acceptance of differences, tolerance persists, conflicts are resolved through dialog, people's rights are respected and their voices are heard, and everyone is at their highest point of serenity without social tension.

I would like the absence of aggression, violence, and hostility.. please

some steps for bringing peace to your mind:

Choose carefully where we spend time.
If you have a spare 15 minutes, don't just automatically switch on the TV or surf the internet. take the opportunity to be still or at least do something positive. the problem is the mind feels insecure unless it has something to occupy it. however, when we really attain a clear mind we discover it creates a genuine sense of happiness and inner peace.

Control of thoughts
it is our thoughts that determine our state of mind. If we constantly cherish negative and destructive thoughts, inner peace will always remain a far cry. At all costs, we need to avoid pursuing trains of negative thoughts.

" If you have inner peace, nobody can force you to be a slave to the outer reality" -Sri Chinmoy

Simplify your life
there are many things that we can do without, quite often we add unneccessary responsibilities to our schedule. Do the most significant tasks, on at a time, and enjoy doing them. to experience innner peace, it is essentail to avoid cluttering our life with unnecessary activities and worries.

Spend time to cultivate inner peace
Every day we spend at least 8 hours a day to earn money, can we not find time to spend 15 minutes to cultivate inner peace? no matter how much money we earn, it cannot bring us inner peace or happiness. but, if we spend 15 minutes on meditation and relaxation techinques inner peace can become a possibility. To experience this inner peace we cannot allow any thought to enter into our mind. true inner peace occurs when we can transcend the world of thoughts.

Be immune to flattery and criticism
If we depend on the opinions and praise of other people, we can never have inner peace. Criticism and flattery are two sides of the same coin. they are both the judgments of others. However, we should not allow ourselves to be affected to either. when we do, we feed the ego. we should learn to have confidence in ourselves. this does not mean we will love ourselves in an egotistical way, it means we value our real self and have a belief in the good qualities that are part of everyone.

Be active selflessly
Inner peace does not mean that we have to live a life of a hermit. inner peace, can be felt amidst dynamic activity. but, this action should be done with selfless motives. when we serve others we forget our sense of self, and it is when we forget our limited self that we have inner peace.

Avoid Criticising others
If we want inner peace, we should feel that our inner peace depends on the well being of others. if we are indifferent to the feelings of others, then it is important to have inner peace for ourselves. what we give out comes back. if you offer a peacful attitude to others this what we will see in return.

so please laat me met rust!

just my luck...

So i get back from having a wonderful time in Arizona with my mom, and then right when i get back to work my bad luck streak kicks in again....

monday: my dad decided to do nothing while i was gone.. not even open the shop, so i had yelling customers while i was on vacation calling my phone and tuesday when i got back to work even more angry people yelling at me...

i had something else happen that i promised i wouldn't tell.... but it is also very upsetting

then i drive clear down to murray to pick up some sinks that i put on will call.. guess what there out of stock! so i drove down there for no reason, in stupid utah construction traffic. and all that company had to say was sorry

after i get back and start closing the shop..a guy walks in, he asks who could help him with tile and i said "that would be me" ... he laughed in my face looked at me funny and said,"never mind then i'll go somewhere else"...

so crying by now...

i get home and find out that the job i was suppose to be getting in the future ... was a lie.. thanks dad! so now the job that i really really was excited for, and depending on doesn't exsist.

Tuesday(today): wake up not feeling good, so i set up and appointment for my OBGYN and she cant see me unitl JULY!! so i have to go to this other male doctor i have never been to, and i still have to wait over a week to see him..

a guy comes in wanting a bid on a little top.. i gave him a price (which was very reasonable for the type of work) and he starts yelling at me! telling me "i dont know how to do math and that i am ripping him off". i break it down and explain the pricing to him and he tells me to "forget it, i'll find someone that has better knowledge of this"

shortly after this...

a kid comes in looking for a job. i tell him we are not hiring, then he asks me to sign this paper showing he came looking for a job here..(happens all the time, it's for unemployment) so i handed him the paper and he takes off running! i look down and notice he took off with my phone!!! so i watch where he is going.. call the police and let them know what happened....

GUESS WHAT... this was over an hour ago and the police still aren't here!!!!!

what the hell is going on?
