Very much good luck!

Missing Valentines day with your husband should not make you upset at all! (Yes a little for the birthday but you can ALWAYS call and talk later on!) You are going to the interview that determines if you FINALLY get to live together!!! :)

Let us know how it goes..


Invictus..

Out of the night that covers me,

Black as the Pit from pole to pole,

I thank whatever gods may be

For my unconquerable soul.

In the fell clutch of circumstance

I have not winced nor cried aloud.

Under the bludgeonings of chance

My head is bloody, but unbowed.

Beyond this place of wrath and tears

Looms but the Horror of the shade,

And yet the menace of the years

Finds, and shall find, me unafraid.

It matters not how strait the gate,

How charged with punishments the scroll.

I am the master of my fate:

I am the captain of my soul.

William Ernest Henley

Can you post a bit of an interview review.

I have posted my review on my timeline.

It was very easy!! I was out way before my assigned appointment. Be there early, carry less and wear something warm depending on the weather and make sure u got no big bags!!! A backpack was turned down when I was there and that was the USC spouse.
