Happy Weekend!

I hope everyone enjoys their Memorial Day holiday weekend!

Also, a very funny, HOT guy just made my day and weekend after he replied to my tweet. Honestly, it's the little things in life that put a smile on my face. :)

A Somewhat Awkward Interview

Last Thursday, I had a job interview for a Marketing Assistant job. Mind you, I don't have a Marketing background, but I've been around long enough to know that I possess the necessary skills and experience to get the job done.

As I sat down for the interview, I was greeted by a young woman and young man, who both looked around my age or a few years younger than me. The woman saw my address and asked if I lived right behind this one specific landmark and I told her 'yes.' She continued to say that she knew a few people who lived on my same street. I just smiled at her and almost asked her which neighbor of mine she knew, but I just let it go. The interview was scheduled for 10:30 a..m., but I arrived about 10 minutes early. Needless to say, my interview was very quick because as I walked out of the interview, it was already 10:30! As I walked to my car, I thought to myself, "What are the chances that this woman or owner of the company could be my neighbor's girlfriend?"

So this morning as I looked out my window, I notice the neighbor getting ready to leave in his car and he's accompanied by his lady friend, a.k.a. his girlfriend, who just happens to be the SAME young woman who interviewed me last Thursday! Talk about an awkward moment!

I think the fact that I didn't get hired by the marketing company was a blessing in disguise. Anyway, I have a meeting scheduled for next Wednesday with the editor of the newspaper I freelance for. She's going to give me more information about the job she has available. If everything works out well and she's able to offer me some flexibility so that I can finish my education, then I think I might be offered a position with the newspaper!

I'm keeping positive thoughts that everything works out the way it's intended to.  :)

Celeb Crushes

The above photo explains the feeling you get when you find out that one of your celeb crushes, Carter Oosterhouse, has a big ego and has let fame go to his head:

Or when you find out that one of your other celeb crushes, Chris Pine, has a girlfriend, who's a model --which doesn't come as a surprise.

Well, at least I have another celeb crush who hasn't disappointed me...yet. ;-)

Airing Out My Frustrations

I try not to let too many things bother me these days. I've been trying to stay positive in hoping that things around me will get better. It's just a matter of being patient and letting things run their course, which are beyond my control. Well, today everything happened all at once.

Today was my last day meeting one-on-one with my (Advanced) Algebra tutor. This was my second semester having him as my tutor and he's been the most patient person I know. Well, today I just could not understand one problem he was trying to help me solve. It seemed like a very easy problem, but there were some steps I had missed, so part of the problem was wrong. At one point I told him that I just couldn't do it anymore. I felt like I was wasting his time. Needless to say, I didn't finish or solve the rest of the problem and worked on a few other problems after that, which I was able to understand.

No matter how hard I try to comprehend every lesson and/or every section in my math class, I feel like I have this block in my brain and that I'm always behind in trying to figure out how to understand what's being taught to me. :(

After feeling so frustrated, I also started thinking about my employment situation. :( I've struggled for the last two years in trying to find work. I recently started a freelance writing job, but freelancing isn't stable or long-term. So when I thought that things couldn't get any better, I come home to find an email from the editor at the freelancing job. She said she's going to have a writer's position available beginning June 1st and wanted to know if I'd be interested in speaking with her about it. I emailed her back and told her 'yes,' I'm interested.

One of my journalism classmates, who currently works as a writer for the same company, recently told me that his job is full-time and leaves him with little time for anything else. I plan on meeting with the editor to discuss the position SOON and when I do, I plan on finding out all the details about the job because finishing my education is very important to me, as is finding stable employment in what I enjoy doing.

This is going to be a difficult decision for me to make. Why can't I just win the lottery and not have to worry about any of this? ;-)

The 'Do I Really Need A Man?' Checklist

Just read an article that totally makes sense about being a single woman in today's society.

To all those out in Blog World,

May I present you Mr. Theatre...also known as Mr. Actor.

The above photo was taken from a television episode he appeared in a while back. Apparently, this specific episode was highly ranked amongst the show's loyal fans. Personally, I couldn't tell you anything about the show since I never watched it. In fact, I was oblivious to it since I don't watch much TV these days. Ok, so I've caught the last two episodes of 'Parks and Recs' with special guest star Paul Rudd.

Anyway, Mr. Actor is a friend of a friend / former colleague of mine, who's also the colleague of an acquaintance. Did you get all that? ;-) Hopefully, I'll get to see him perform in another production again. Otherwise, I'll just wait patiently until he tweets again or posts another status update. :-)
