Because Life Is Just Life Sometimes

Well, life sure is a bit tricky at times.  We all know that life isn't fair at times right? Well, duh.  But as I have learned down the lines, sometimes you have to take the good stuff and run with it in life.  It makes those bad unfair times more bearable to deal with.

For instance, my new hair color is a positive in my life because I LOVE it!

Tuesday was a not so great day for me.  As you all know, I am still job hunting.... yes, STILL.  It's no joke. It's hard to find a job in NJ. Nobody is hiring and if they are, they want entry level people to pay them minimum for experienced work.  That's not me.  Tuesday alone I applied to 28 jobs.  I started at about 7am since I couldn't sleep and ending around 2pm.  That's a LONG time to be on the computer. Applying to jobs isn't just sending in a resume anymore, it's sending your resume and filling out an online application that literally makes you re-write your dam resume which takes 45 minutes. No joke. It's not fun.  But it is what it is. The bad day just started with the pent up emotion of fifty million people asking me if I found a job yet.  I understand that they are just legit asking to see how I am doing.  I WANT a job. I SEARCH every god dam day for a job.  I am not sitting at home looking pretty and enjoying "vacation" as some retarded people like to call it.

But let's go back to positive...
Out of the 28 applications I did on Tuesday, I got a call that same day for an interview that I went to on Wednesday.  I think the interview went great and the company sounds very promising.  They said they will be making a decision by the end of next week.

Plus side is that it seems that jobs are starting to pick up here in NJ. Hoping that means that something fitting for me comes my way.

My motto to get me through this week...

I have my fingers crossed for you in the job hunt!!

Good luck with this potential new job! I totally hear you...I graduated in 2008 and all I heard was how easy it would be for me to find a job because I was a "woman in science". Fast forward almost a year later and I was still unemployed. It's really rough but I'm glad to see it looks like you're keeping a positive outlook!

I really hope this works out for you... crossing my fingers!

First your hair really does look awesome!
And second, I hear ya... I looked for a while after my position was eliminated before hubby and I deciding that the entry level position crap was STUPID and how am I supposed to afford daycare for twins if I'm not getting anything? I would work to pay for that and that's it the money would be done, so for now I'm a mother but I know how hard it is. I wish you the best of luck with this last interview! ((hugs))
