Fancy That

In a matter of three days, I went from gainfully unemployed with no prospects to an offer of full-time employment. I heard about this job, via word of mouth, on Wednesday afternoon. I contacted the company on Thursday morning. I was emailed a test, a hard as $#^%!@#! test, on Thursday afternoon. I sent it back a few hours later. They called before the day was out and asked me to come in for an interview. I went in this morning. I interviewed with two people. I got home around noon. At 3, they called to offer me the position. I start work on Monday.

My head is still spinning.

Yes, there's a reason why I've put this picture in this post.

Those of you who know me or have met me know I'm not exactly a fashion plate. I'm quite happy in my jeans, tank tops and Vans.

So how on earth did I land a job in fashion? I'm so ignorant when it comes to fashion that I was not even familiar with this company. Of course, when I told others about where I'll be working, they flipped.

Expect some serious Ugly Betty moments.

Maybe you can write your own story line! Can't wait to hear all about it. Good Luck!

Oh, my condolences on becoming gainfully employed. Its likely to have negative consequences to your water time. Hope you love the job. Peace.

As I said to someone else, this turning point is bittersweet. I will no longer be a free surfer, no. I will, however, be able to pay the bills. And with a child in private school, a future need for braces on his teeth and finally being able to see a doctor again, I can't bemoan my fate. This is a wonderful development that came at just the right time.

I think that's great. You may not have a fashion resume, but you've got style for days, present yourself well and are intelligent. That goes a long way, I think. I may very soon be down to two days a week in the water, but like you, I gotta do what I gotta do. :)

Congratulations! Having been out of employment for certain parts of the past couple of years I promise its nice sometimes to just pay the bills and not worry about it. Afterall if it doesn't work out and the sea comes a calling you can always quit!
