It happened 2 weeks ago.
As usual, I’d wake up and browse through indeed, hoping I’d find something that suited my abilities.
When I was filling out this one job application there were all these crazy weird questions about programming and I just assumed I was not right for the role…
But they called.
It was such a relief to get a call back after months of not even a “no, thank you”!
I had never realized it before – when I was childless and living with my parents – but looking for work is crazy and stressful. It’s like a full time job, ’cause it seriously takes up your whole day.
I was exhausted. I tried everything, – including the night shift at McDonald’s – I had given up on all my dreams and my career, I just wanted to feed my kids once our savings were gone. At the same time, I wanted to quit and not think about it for a while.
But I could’t.
So, the lady on the phone said “I’ll let you know if you are one of the selected candidates and if the manager would like to meet with you in person for an interview”.
I absolutely never in my life thought they would call me back.
But they did!
So, I went all the way to Pickering, which took me about 4 hours and I met with this very, very simpathetic person. We just talked and talked as I waited for the lady who was going to interview me. In fact, we talked so much I was actually late for the meeting even though I had gotten there probably half and hour early.
It’s all about luck, I suppose. It doesn’t mean they’re ever hiring someone better than you once you don’t get a job. It just means the moment wasn’t right.
I tried to keep myself positive, ’cause I believe it helps. I didn’t wanna get lost in day dreams and then find myself terribly disappointed. I didn’t wanna write about it and jinks it.
So, that’s why you haven’t been hearing much from me lately. I was just waiting for those calls… to nervous and scared to actually talk about it.
Oh, and before I forget…
I start on Monday.
Thanks guys for reading and sending me good energies!
ps: Lindsay we very much wanna hear about toddler activities in Toronto! o/
