Well, around two weeks ago I went to Chicago to visit my family for a week. It was a great little vacation and I'm glad that I'm able to get paid vacation from my work, or I probably wouldn't have gone. I haven't seen my family in a long time, and it was really worth it.
While I was gone, I found out that I received my Personal Trainer Certification! I've been working hard towards this and I am of course very happy. While I was gone, I applied for a personal trainer position. Right when I got back, I was asked to come in for an interview at a gym that I go to. I went to a couple of interviews and found out that I GOT THE JOB!
I'm very happy and this is what I've been wanting and working towards for some time now. 🙂 Some of you have asked me how to become a personal trainer. Take a look at the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics to read a good article about how you can become one.
Also, I'm going to St. Thomas tomorrow. My sister and I haven't gone on a vacation together in a very long time, and I'm really looking forward to going somewhere pretty and relaxing.
