Job Update

Well, the online application/test came and went yesterday and I got my denial letter today. It said that I am not competitive enough and they would consider me again in 12 months. Hopefully, in a year from now I will be working somewhere else. I guess it's time to move on from my previous employer and look for something else out there. I just gotta remind myself that there are A lot more companies out there.

Out of yesterdays meeting though I did get a call from an Insurance agent that is married to my ex-boss so maybe something will come out of this. I will have to see. Plus, today I applied for another job at CITI so maybe something will come out of that. I will just keep praying for the right job to come along. Yesterdays job was just not meant to be.....

Back to the JOB drawing board........................

Take care and have a great day.

I don't know about you, but I am filled with stories. When I lived in Chicago before I got married I used to date a guy for about six years. This story is not about him, it's about a homeless person. My ex used to live on the northside of Chicago. On the weekends I would drive over to his house it was a 45 minute drive through those crazy car packed streets.

On my drive every weekend I always noticed this person. I think he/she was homeless because I always saw this person in the same spot. They made their home in an opening of a store building....... They were dressed in black and he/she always had their coat hood over their face so you could never see it. All you saw was a figure standing straight with his/her hands to the side and the face always covered. In a way it was scary because it was a stiff figure just standing there and you could never see the face...........

I must have seen this person for a couple of weeks always standing in the same spot. I don't know why this caught my attention and every weekend that I would drive through this area I would always look for this person.

I WISH I could have stopped and offered some food or maybe just have left a bag a groceries near him/her. Of course, I did not have the nerve. You never know how the person will react. Sometimes I wonder what happened to this person. This person will never know what impression it left on my life. THIS person will never know that every weekend when I took that long drive I used to look for him/her.

I WISH I would have been brave enough to do a good deed. I often wonder if it was an angel that no one else could see but me......... I should have stopped. I should of lent a hand, but I didn't.........

Sometimes little things are seen or said and YOU never know how it will impact a life.........

Job Update

Okay, I got a call a few days ago from my previous employer and I will be going in this coming Tuesday to fill out an online application and I am not sure what happens after that. I guess they will talk to me about job openings they may have. So I have been a little nerve wrecked recently trying to remember how to dress for an interview. It has been a while since I last interviewed. I will keep ya posted. It has been a hard decision to make, but I am ready to join the workforce again..................

or maybe

this atc. I really don't know about the white tag...... What do you think keep it or loose it?

simple but hes cute right?????? I am playing around trying to figure out my v-day atcs.................


Wow the Holidays flew I think and it's already January 6, 2006...... I am looking forward to going to Red leads demo tomorrow. I have been in a creative mood lately, but don't know if my creative fairy has been visiting. Why does she only come once a week instead of everyday all day??????

I have been cleaning my little room where I create.... Why does it seem that I am always doing that..... I start a project and then I make a mess all over again...........

I decided to go back on the south beach diet again to Start from Scratch.......... I went on it I think two and 1/2 years ago has it been that long. I weighed myself yesterday and I have gained 15 pounds back since my last weigh in a couple months ago. Sorry, but I love to eat especially good food like sweets and bread and sweets and bread.......... I have been good, but I have been a little bad as well...... So hopefully I will loose those pounds in two weeks. I already warned my husband that I will be crabby since I won't be able to eat my one slice of wheat toast with cream cheese and sugar free strawberry jelly.......... Gosh if there was one wish I could have it would be to never gain weight.............. So here I go again trying to go down instead of up.......

Okay, I can blah blah blah all day, but I gotta run. I am always running doing something. So have a good one and create, create, create.
