show no fear

I had a phone interview today with Gamerz. They're a company that produces video games for (shall we say) enthusiasts all over the planet. I was getting a little nervous about it but then something Ethan said in a text made me feel like I could do anything...

Show no fear.

You know what? I rocked that interview. I felt great afterwards!!

Now I'm here thinking about all the things I'm fearful about and it's all a load of hooey. Fear is hooey, people. One huge thing I've been fearful about is working out.

I'm gonna do this, people - come hell, high water or a bad hair day (I seem to be having a lot of those lately) I'm going to get my backside moving.

Of course my fitness regime will start tomorrow m0rning. I'm tired now and I want to read a bit before I sleep.

Tomorrow is a new day, kids! A brand new day!

the show must go on

Not sure why this is but I feel like I'm losing faith. Ethan keeps assuring me that I'm not the only one who's looking for work in this toilet-like economic climate. He went through it along with some of his friends. Sure, that's comforting and bless Ethan's heart for saying so... I'm just wondering when my time will be. My time to shine. My time where I can bask in the glory that the universe has to offer.

I was at a CLE today faxing a resume when a man approached me and asked for help with Word - he wanted to make a few changes to his CV and wasn't sure how. I said, no problem, I'll show you. Unfortunately he had an old floppy disk that wasn't working so I explained to him that he should invest in a USB flash drive. He thanked me for my help and off I went to send my fax (a real one).

Ethan says that was my good deed for the day. I did feel good helping out that man. Makes me think about that psychic I met almost 10 years ago who told me my chosen career would be something where I can ask people "How can I help you?" Now here I can trying so desperately to find that career.

These days I live for my EI cheque so I can buy food, pay rent and maybe a treat of sorts. Yay.
Tomorrow just happens to be one of those days.

Oh yeah - I didn't get the job at ProServ. They even reposted the blasted job! Ethan suggested I call them and raise hell however I don't want to - it's better to leave well enough alone. It's obvious that they don't know which way is up so I certainly want no part of that. Listen up kids - stay the eff away from ProServ!

dancing in September

Can you believe it's September?! I can't. It's almost fall. When I was a kid I loved fall - the clothes, the fresh school supplies and the sort of 'New Years' feeling that the fall season brings. It's almost as if the world is saying, enough fun has been had - it's time to buckle down and get serious before the winter comes.

So I've been on 3 interviews for a role at ProServe here in Montreal. This scenario is quite unexpected to say the least - when I first saw the posting I didn't think I had the qualifications yet they seemed to think so! Now I wait for their final decision. I hate this part of the process. I don't want to get my hopes up yet I can't help but feel hopeful. I really want to find something so I can get out of the house, do something meaningful during the day and build up my bank account.

In the proverbial meantime, I'm still looking for jobs. Ethan has been a huge support through all of this. He's kind, caring and knows just what I need while letting me be me. You rock, Ethan - you really do!
