CAUSE I GOT A JOB !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! AND IT'S THE JOB I WANTED! I don't want to say where because I heard of people losing jobs because their empoyers did not like their blogging... I will say I am an assistant manager at a restaurant and I make more money than I have in a VERY long time. Whew!!! I have to admit even with the motivational videos and comedy and affirmations and the nightly pep talk from my sweet, supportive hubby, I was sweating bullets. I decided today before I got the job offer that if this did not work out I was heading back home to regroup and see my family. But now I will look for a permanent place for us to live... but first I will book a massage somewhere and treat myself to some TLC. I have been waking up in the night with leg cramps and my foot still hurts when I walk to much. I have not done my nightly stretching either since I hurt my foot so I am sure that contributes to the cramps. After we get settled, I plan to join a gym again. I miss the one I went to back home and I felt better! But for now I will take a breather and sleep in for a change.
If you are looking for work or know someone who is, I suggest thinking outside the box, meaning don't completely focus on jobs posted on the internet job boards... go to the places you want to work at and sell yourself. That is how I got this job. It took a month of consistant marketing myself and then asking for the job at the interview that I believe got me this job... I did go to other jobs and apply but I always went back to the one I wanted. Oh and brag about yourself at the interview but be honest they will find out...
And don't forget to laugh out loud!
