As I have been getting up the past few mornings and making my way through the rain down Court Street, I was thinking… “Will my blackberry actually deliver me GOOD news today instead of the junk e-mail and coupons I recieve daily from places like Best Buy, Bath and Body and Express?” Not that I don’t enjoy those coupons or anything, they are great, but I have come to think of myself with my phone to be similiar to Pavlov’s Dog. Every time my phone beeps for an e-mail, I jump, get excited and frantically reach for my phone (if it’s not already in my hand). All I keep hoping for is an e-mail saying I have FINALLY landed an interview, someone wants to speak with me, anything at all besides a 2 for $20 3-wick candle at Bath and Body.
This morning as I was sitting in my psychology class, I saw my phone light up with a 614 number on it. At first, of course, I thought this is exciting maybe someone is calling me for an interview. Then it hit me, I called on about five different apartments last night and it was the realtors returning my call. Bummer. About five minutes later it lit up again, “Could it be? Eh… I’ll wait till class is over and find out.” Well much to my surprise, it was an employer who did want to speak with me, but for a part-time position, in a field that I love- obviously running. I guess this could mark another lap on the race to find a job. It is something and someone was actually interested in pursuing me AFTER reading this blog. =)
I believe that as the next few weeks pass and I go on the few interviews and info interviews I have set up, things will eventually make a turn-around and many positive opportunities will start falling into place (hey, I am being optimistic, its the only way to be).
Alright, the “living room” in Alden has been invaded by far too many people and it is time to make my way downstairs to print of 30 copies of my resume and new pieces for my portfolio. Adios.
