I slacked off today because I was feeling sick for a few hours and I was really tired. I really wasn't expecting them to want to hire me but they did. The boss has gotten less intense and less hyper critical, but it is still too early to tell. The pay isn't great and they wouldn't even negotiate, which I didn't like. But they said there will be opportunities for advancement and higher pay, potentially even in the very near future.

I have a lot to think about. I need an income and besides some not so great things, this is a great organization and opportunity.

Sooooooo, I had an interview with this company on Wednesday for a book marketing job. Everyone was British.

It went great, and they told me there wouldn't be a second round.

They want to meet me for coffee.

In your experience, do they ever want to meet in person so they can hire you personally???????????

Good lord, I am BROKE. I just paid my gas/electric/phone bills and have nothing left. Pay day is Tuesday at least, and I have nearly 40 hours at the store next week.

I'm back to looking. I started a new position 1/7 but I realize it's a bad fit. I dread looking at my boss' emails and I feel such joy when she leaves the office. I have asthma flare-ups when I think of her. The last three years have been hard. I realized that I need a job that I like and I can financially support myself with. I am burnt out from being places where my boss is rude, has unrealistic expectations or where I go into debt because I'm underpaid. I have to believe that things will get better soon. :-)

I had breakfast with my best guy friend the other morning and we talked A LOT, and a lot of it was insightful and a little confusing.

I honestly love and trust this guy more than I could say. He knows that, and he has commented on my major "I lost a father young" abandonment issues many times, and sometimes I worry I'll annoy him to death and he'll go away, but he's so been there for me very very steadily, throughout everything, for the past six years and he's not going to go anywhere.

He works VERY VERY hard on his creative projects, but I also think he has a bit of family support, and is able to. He's very much a free spirit and travels a lot and works on different things.

The first words out of his mouth were, "Just warning you, I am in the mood to really lecture people today."

(As he always is.)

He knows I'm still interviewing, he knows I still have sights on this great day job with a stable salary and benefits just to hold me over until I'm supporting myself as a writer. He knows what I go through with my mom, and how I still beat myself up EVERY DAY over losing all of those jobs.

Annnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnd lectured he DID.

A few highlights:

"CIBC, I am telling you now. I decided I am only going to associate with rockstars...so if you want to stay close to me...you HAVE to become a rockstar."

"There's a reason you're not getting ALL OF THESE JOBS and if you will, that you are GOING TO KEEP LOSING THEM. They can SMELL it on you that you have so much more going for you. They want to hire somebody dull and boring that will just get the job done and not want to do anything else. And even if you lie to them, they'll google you and find play reviews and blogs and pictures of you hanging-out with celebrities and meeting the President and they'll KNOW they won't want to hire you!"

And then he said this...immortal words...that I want to frame and hang everywhere!

"Do you think life is supposed to be EASIER because you're so brilliant and talented? NO! Life is going to be SO MUCH HARDER and SCARIER when you're like that!"

(I tear-up.)


"Don't cry. DO NOT CRY. STOP. NO."

"CIBC, why are we good friends?"

Me: Because...we're really a lot alike?

Him: And what do I DO that you don't do? I DON'T TAKE PEOPLE'S ******** AND THAT IS ALL I WANT YOU TO DO, TOO.

Okay, I think the WORLD of this guy. I think he is one of the smartest, most clever and funniest people I know, is incredibly confident (which is the #1 thing I struggle with every day of my life), and I feel like the only people who would EVER dislike him are probably just basing it on the rich LA kid air he can give-off sometimes, so anything positive he says about me I take very seriously and as something I really need to believe when other people tell me otherwise...(and by "other people"...I mean, my mom, sister, mom's boyfriend, my aunt, etc...) I don't think "brilliant and talented" are words he'd throw around casually just to make somebody feel better.

I was completely kidding, but, hello, you're not supposed to joke in emails because tone is lost, because he took me seriously and got upset.

My fortune cookie fortune read, "You will soon change your present line of work." I choose to see that as a positive sign. I finished my resume and cover letter and will send out in the morning. I listed my current company as confidential. I've only been there one month, two weeks, and a day. My boss and I had a good day today. I hope she stays that way, but the not knowing makes me nervous. I decided though to try to not let her get to me.

I needed to remind myself of this today.
I've had some good days
I've had some hills to climb
I've had some weary days
And some sleepless nights
But when I look around
And I think things over
All of my good days
Outweigh my bad days
I won't complain

I actually didn't have many (new) complaints about work today or these last few days. I think I'm getting used to it. Today was actually pretty enjoyable because we had an event and a good amount of downtime, so I got to talk to my other co workers a little more. It was really nice getting to know them better because in the office it's usually really quiet and can get to feel isolated. Now I think I can strike up conversation more.
