Chick-Fil-A and a Djembe

I got a job! Part-time at Chick-fil-A. Of all the fast food restaurants I feel like this is the best place to work. The people are so friendly and really care to do a good job and make the customers happy. Plus, at the one I work at, they are nearly all Christian so the atmosphere is really positive. It's a bit stressful at times but I enjoy the work. I've also got an interview for an assistant position at a college library this week, that would be awsome because it's right in line with my chosen career path. (wow that phrase still feels funny...I actually have a career path...) Oh, and something really cool happened on my way home from work. My car wouldn't start - kind of normal with my car now, I just have to give it a little time and try again later - so I decided to go to Marshall's. In the back of the store, I found a djembe. A hand-carved djembe from Ghana, with a real skin head and beautiful designs on it. It was on clearance for $25!!! That's like, 90% off! I snatched it immediately. I have been wanting a djembe for years. So yeah, that was like a little gift from God my Father, reminding me He loves me.

Today we did our Easter celebration at Providence. I was in the handbell choir and the regular choir. It was a lot of fun practicing and putting it on. We did the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel's Messiah.

Next Saturday Heather and Bryant and I are going to an anime convention. I'm not like a hardcore anime fan, but I do appreciate a fair amount of anime and manga, and it's closeby and cheap. Plus Heather and I have been waiting for an excuse to dress up in costumes. It's kind of random, since they're steampunk costumes, but you can pretty much get away with anything at an anime convention. Here's a sneak preview of my costume:
