As the title says, I'm back in BG! Here's quick recap on what ended up happening:
Sunday May 17th: I meet with Ken and Isaac, the designers of KaufmanFranco who outline job pay and benefits if they were to hire me, but have to ask Abby for a job description. They'll get back to me Friday, Monday at the latest, and to call Tuesday if I hadn't heard from them.
Monday May 25th: I'm afraid to go on the subway in case they call. But it doesn't matter; they don't call.
Tuesday May 26th: After calling 3 times, Isaac picks up. He says they don't have an answer for me. They're waiting for Abby to put together a job description and he'll send an email within 24/48 hours. After hanging up and then talking to my Dad for awhile, I decide to just catch a plane back. I feel better already because I'm not waiting on someone else to make a decision that would affect my next step-- I made a decision myself and acted on it.
Tuesday night: Meet up with John at GADS who's in town until Thursday, go see Mad Max, and then walked around the carnival at the mall.
Wednesday May 27th: I put together and send Abby a job description that I had quickly put together based on what I think the job would entail. She responds within a couple hours with a "thank you" and "have you heard from the guys any??" At this point, I assume the designers haven't been communicating with Abby.
Wednesday night: Dinner and putt putt golf with John. He leaves tomorrow morning for Alabama to report in and to start house hunting.
Saturday May 30th: Go kayaking with Katie and her new boyfriend and after 3 hours on the water, I know I'll have sore arms the next day. I get home and get a call from John, who I assume is bored in his hotel room, but he ends with "look outside and tell me what you see"--and I see that he's parked outside. He came back to surprise me :) and splits the weekend between spending time with me and his mom. He leaves again Monday morning.
Tuesday June 2nd: Starting submitting resumes for a retail job here. And still haven't heard from KF.
I still don't regret catching a plane back; I feel like I made a great decision last Tuesday :)
