“The Plunge”

Well, I did it; I sub­mit­ted an appli­ca­tion for the Wal­mart man­age­ment train­ing pro­gram. Dun­no when I’ll hear back about an inter­view (if I do hear back, at is), but the sub­mis­sion form said that if accept­ed I would be placed in the train­ing store some­time between March and May. After grad­u­a­tion, I’ll be placed with­in a store with­in an hour’s dri­ve of where I live, sup­pos­ed­ly, so that could be my home store (I think that’s allowed, any­where, which would be pre­ferred), Rich­mond, Green­field, Oxford, Eaton, New Cas­tle, Rushville, and a few others.

The few peo­ple I’ve told at work are real­ly excit­ed for me and think I’d be great at it. Some have won­dered what’s tak­en me so long. And anoth­er (Hi, Kris­ten!) has already said she’d be hap­py to take my place.

So I’m excit­ed. If I get the posi­tion, I will have proven a lot to myself, and have real­ly tak­en my life up a notch.
