Job Application In Washington State University
I was so happy to receive a letter from Washington State University requesting me to send my transcripts, samples of my writing and references to them. While I don't recall sending my resume to uni but it was good know that one organisation is interested to interview me.

As usual my happiness is short-lived. After checking map point on the driving directions, I realised that the uni is located in Pullman - a 4 hours drive from my apartment to the uni. Pullman is city located on the far east of Washington. Well, the invitation letter did state that the uni is able to provide accommodation if prior notice has been given. Thanks, but no thanks.

Maybe my prayer is not specific enough and God has mistaken my intentions. From now onwards, I will be specific in my request. "I want a job in Bellevue, Redmond or Seattle only".
