I've Said NO!

People always say Step 1 is identifying the problem. Step 2 is fixing it. Well I identified my biggest problem in my last post - not saying no - and today I began to fix it. I turned down the 2nd interview I got with Alcon. Seems crazy, I know. But when I went to the 1st interview I found out that I was not only interviewing for a summer internship, they wanted me to start next week. Seeing as I am starting what a lot of people think is the hardest semester in the TCU MBA program and have already taken on 2 extra projects, I just don't think that I could add in a part-time internship and be able to give anything the best effort that I think they all deserve. I would be setting myself up for failure. So I am sticking with what I have committed myself to already and focusing on quality. I hope I don't regret it as I now have to interview with other companies and hope to get a good internship!

They prayed for rain in church yesterday, and Lindsey and Kaite and I lost it. Downey has to eat, Tabitha has to eat, Melissa is eating her own babies! Oh man we lost it bad.
