Dreamlet Weekend

Sorry, LDs. I didn't keep track, nor do I remember dreams from this weekend. I'll have a Bitch and Moan postie up later this evening.

Mr Realist is making BBQ chicken kabobs over charcoal this evening, and I'm throwing some shit away (and labeling it) for Saturday's yard sale.

I want to thank each and every one of you, LDs, followers and readers, for your prayers about the job at Camp.

I didn't get it. Not even a call back or an email telling me 'you're not what we're looking for.' Sat in the shower on Saturday afternoon and just cried. I want to every time I think about it. My status on FB that day was "is resigned. Not has, is." Resigned to that it's becoming more and more like I'll be here, in Hell, for the rest of my days. And I hate it.

But I have to be strong.

I have to make a 60-second video telling a panel of judges why they should pick me to spend a Month at the Museum (yeah, I'm entering a cheesy contest *grin*)...without swearing. LDs, do you vote based on content or visuals? I've already gotten my 500-word essay (down to the word!) and the application completed. I'd like have to film, burn, and mail by Monday. Any thoughts?

Heepwah, and be safe out there

  1. It's okay to be sad for awhile. Then after that, pick yourself back up and get ready to kick some ass! Another door will open, you just might have to knock it down. I personally go for words, but that's just me.

  2. Awww I'm sorry Steph :(

    I hope things work out for you, and I know how you feel. Jimmy Johns did the same thing to me, or rather...they hired me, then a month later stopped putting me on the schedule.

    Sucks because I spent a year and a half trying to find a job, and I finally got one, only to have them pull something like that. They never did call me to at least say I was no longer employed.

    I had an interview at Best Buy, but they've never called back for a second interview. Meanwhile, a hotel has basically offered me a job - which I'm taking (drug test pending). My mom said I should wait to see if Best Buy calls. I'd rather go with a guarantee than spend another year unemployed.

    But we do what we have to in order to get by, and someday do what we love. It just takes hard work and dedication :)


Be safe out there.
