Spent most of today researching and prepping for this job that I really want. Prob won’t get it because I don’t have as much experience as the description requires and I wouldn’t be able to start right away since I am gonna be gone most of August…
but I still have a little bit of hope, and even if I can’t get that particular job I kinda know more which direction I want to head into in terms of Fashion jobs.
I spent all day reading about the job interview questions, quizzing myself, and acquainting myself with the current trends in the market. I am looking up books to read to beef up my knowledge and am I going to start work on my actual portfolio so I can have some samples to show during the interview (if I get one).
Finally I am up all night for a good reason, for once, and I am looking at a job that doesn’t intimidate me that I know I am fully capable of doing.
Calling all peeps to let me style you and snap pics of you!
Today was very special for me. I had a great orientation at my new job. I’m not going to mention the name of the company because I guess any kind of social networking mention of a company name that you work for can get you in trouble these days. Even though all I have to say are good things about it. I really enjoyed my day there and I thought everyone was enthusiastic and professional (the trainers). I’m excited for the product reveal tomorrow. It seems like a fun company to work for and I’m feeling good about my decision to apply there. I just hope that they keep me on, and not drop me as a seasonal/temp.
The more special part of my day however was that I was reunited with an olddddddddddd friend, someone who was around even before all of the people that I had previously considered to be my oldest longest friends. I had nearly forgotten about this person, or people rather (I’ll get to that in a minute). This morning I sat down and started making small talk with another new hire as we were the first two to arrive at the orientation and were waiting outside. We got along well and spent the next few hours working side by side and getting to know a little about each other. Later, I realized that I recognized her face. I didn’t put much more thought into it and continued on with my work, then all of a sudden A HUGE FLASHBACK hit me. Literally, like a ton of bricks. A string of perfectly vivid memories appeared in my mind of my elementary school age self going to play at the house of two twin sisters that were a little younger than me. This was her; she was one of the twins. Her mom and my dad used to work together and we’d all hang out and play together. MAJOR MINDFUCK FOR BOTH OF US. In the best possible way, of course. It is funny that we kind of re-became friends before we realized that we already WERE friends! Maybe our childhood souls were subconsciously drawn together, hmm. Anyway, I told her about my discovery and she was happy/surprised about it too. We both hugged each other after, it was very sweet and amazingly serendipitous.
