A Ray of Hope

This week turned out very nicely, overall. I helped officiate two Development Academy soccer games Sunday morning in Maryland Heights. They went well, considering the second game's start was delayed about 30 minutes due to lightning in the vicinity and was then played under highly windy conditions. At least afterward I could chill out at home.
I spent much of Monday through Wednesday morning preparing for my job interview Wednesday afternoon. It was for a communications specialist position with a firm in St. Charles, Missouri, and I was there for about two hours, interviewed by the marketing and human resources directors. I also took a pair of tests and received info on the organization's benefits package. I am optimistic of being called for a second interview next week.
I was assistant referee on two boys games Wednesday night. Thursday, I fact checked a chapter of a book my brother Rick was editing, and this morning I was at a career search program in Sunset Hills, Missouri. After short speeches of welcome by Rep. Russ Carnahan and St. Louis County Executive Charlie Dooley, a panel discussion was held on job search trends and tools. Several breakout sessions were offered after that, and I took in one on networking. There, I chatted with several panelists, exchanging business cards.
I'm relaxing tonight, but it's soccer this weekend. I plan to be at Barristers in Clayton to watch the Manchester United v Liverpool patch on TV. I referee boys games Saturday and Sunday night. Hope all of them go well.
Hope you all are well. Take care & talk to you soon.
