why Alaska

So I went to Alaska for the first time, I think it was 2003 or 2004. And fall in love with the place.
I've always wanted to travel and knew in my heart that I didn't belong in the town I was born in. Last post I had said I live in a small town well after looking it up we have about 300,000 people this year. Well as I was saying I knew for the longest time my heart was in far off lands and that's why girl scouts was so good for me and I was blessed enough to meet some really great people who wanted to travel and so we did, I've been able to make it to Alaska, and Australia. Both places I didn't want to leave. My mom joked with the ladies that I had gone with that she would pay them to leave me there and I so wish they did :) 

I've been asked a lot of questions here are some of them

Why I would want to go to Alaska?               Well why did you decide to settle in the town  you live in? I want to see the beautiful land around the world, have a family and live life. Part of truly living life for me personally is to see the world and this job in Alaska allows me to see a place I loved and didn't appreciate it for what it really was the first time I went. Also i don't like the 80- 100 degree weather I normally get during the summer!

Where did I find the job?                   About 6 months ago when I wanted to find a new job, the one before the place I'm working at currently, I would look on craigslist. While looking for jobs in my town there was a listing for Alaska and I found this interesting because i am about 3 day drive from there and so I looked at the post. It was a job for one of the towns i had gone to when i went the first time. this got me thinking about my favorite town, the town is in the middle of no where and can only be reached if you take a bus, personal car are not aloud to drive in that part of the state. well i googled jobs in the town and ran across summer job listings for it and applied for it not even thinking a call would ever come but ya know what could it hurt. So 6 months go by and i didn't hear a thing, i even forgot that i had applied or what web page it was. i was going to bed after working my job and i got a call from a weird area code and almost didn't pick up, luckily I did and he asked if i was still interested and that the guy that they had hired decided not to take the job. Of course I said yes and we set a time for an interview.

right now i cant think of any other questions i had got asked a couple times so I will tell some of the funny things about the interview.

So if you know me you know I love myself or at lest act like I we know its true that I do though! During the interview he asked what my strengths were and I answered that I love people and helping put and being friendly, just like my father. Well the next logical question was what i felt was my weaknesses....I swear I really sat there for a minute and tried thinking of one, and I just couldn't. I feel average in most areas but not weak in any area but spelling....I don't fell that people are bad or weak at anything but just am really good at certain things, so i explained that i have none but I excel at guest service. I even apologized for not thinking pf one but he said that its a good thing i think that because it shows i have confidence, did he hit the nail on the head or what!
next thing was why i like 3rd shift, well I know what needs done and not alot of surprises and I  can plan things and organise stuff, which i love to do! Also alot of people don't like 3rd shift and this allows me a better chance at a job if I say I want 3rds.

Well I think that's all i will write for tonight. <3


  1. Hi, l.f.a. Followed you over from Celestial Kitties, and thought I'd say Hi.

    I find myself on third shift a lot, which mostly doesn't bother me. I've always been more night owl than morning person. Third also means you seldom have to deal with visiting executives swooping through the plant.

    A hint. At least on my browser, it is hard to read the text. You might want to make the background a bit lighter, or play with the text color, or something.

  2. i have changed it...let me know if this is better. thank you again

  3. Yeah, that is a lot better. If you really like the background you had, you probably could play around with shading and maybe the text color and get something that would work.

    What is that tower on the one side of the edge?

  4. its the effile tower...sorry i dont spell well

    i will be looking for a cool picture of alaska though and put it back there

  5. You need a picture of the northern lights! I am so glad someone said something about how hard it was to read, lol! I know I should have, but since she lives with me, I'm in the slap-zone!

  6. lol....i dont like most of googles pics of the northern lights....ill have to go though my alaska pics and see if i find a good one
