Internal Pirouettes

I got it! I got a job! I got THE job! I’m so excited! So, let me tell you about it. Thirteen months ago, I lost my favorite job of all time. I was really sad to go, but hopeful that they would bring me back in the summer, if things picked up. Unfortunately, things …

Camp NaNoWriMo

Yup. It’s official. I’m a tad nuts. I successfully completed my NaNo book in November. I just got a message on Facebook about Camp NaNoWriMo being next month. And I desperately want to do it! The only problem is, I’m a very busy girl. I’m working two jobs, putting in anywhere from 5 to 20 …

First Day

So, the first day at a new job is never a good example of what the rest of the days will be like, right? Not sure if that’s good or bad. Today was my first day with a new company. I started out by …..    …….    ………… waiting. They didn’t have any login information for …

So THERE!

I had a job a little over three months ago.  I worked very hard for them – one week I think I worked 60 hours, most weeks at least 48 hours.  I was always early, always dependable, and always cheerful and willing to do whatever was asked of me.  It was a temp to perm …

Just My Luck

So, I was given a potential job offer today. The problem is, the rules of my unemployment benefits say that I have to accept any job I’m offered. When I was told about the job by my placement agency, I was given the information by someone who didn’t have all of the information. I believed …
