So it was Halloween week…VERY exciting. I will get to that later but first I want to talk about the boring stuff…
My butt has been hitting the pavement looking for a job. I’ve been pretty successful getting interviews and even a few job offers. I quit the first job before I even started it bc I wanted to work the other job I thought was in the bag! I was told I could get my acceptance letter once he checked my references. It was mine! Or so I thought… It was quite a shock when I heard that offer for the second offer wasn’t going to happen. He had the three previous people he interviewed accept the job and now there was no room for me. I was unaware of any of this and extremely miffed that this was managed in such an unprofessional way. The manager told me the spots got filled after I quit job 1.
After I got over my bitching and moaning of losing that opportunity, I went back to the drawing board and searched again. I still lacked and FT and PT job. I went to Macy’s, my go-to , and got a great PT gig. I’m going to be a holiday manager at the store!!! I can only handle 15 hours a week max. It will still be a good job though. I can do that job in my sleep. I also interviewed at a start up sales company from Denver, Colorado. I got the job!!! I’m pretty excited and scared about it. I think I can do it. The place is called The Austin Focus. They were looking for account managers. It’s a direct marketing/sales job. The job would consist of me doing QVC style sales at Sam’s Club stores located around Austin. It’s base or performance based pay. They sell a variety of items. It’s a small company but there’s so much potential to be successful. I’m planning on getting to that stage where I’m making good money and living the life I dreamed for so long! I know how to talk to people and sell things in Macy’s setting, I could totally get this. It’s just a different way to sell! Send me positive vibes!
And if getting two jobs wasn’t exciting enough, it was HALLOWEEN weekend ( WELL, I chose to celebrate the weekend before opposed to the weekend after.) I hate when Halloween is mid week!!!! So many decisions to make! Is this or next week the better week to celebrate???? My ideal costume wasn’t possible. I was focused on job hunts and not creative costumes this year. I wanted to make the “mom that shops” sticker that goes with the annoying family stickers on the back of that suburban van. I didn’t know how I’d create that in 4 days. I decided I was going to make it easy for myself and be a tennis player. I liked it all the same. It was fun. Someone asked me when the match was starting!
With Racket in hand, I was headed out to see the masses of people decked out in Halloween garb, or so I thought. Jill, her b/f Duane, his friends, and I went to a concert at Mohawk. We saw Phantogram! They were great! But nobody was really dressed up. Eh, it would have been more fun if I saw more costumes but I love Halloween and will dress up…even if i’m 80 🙂 The best costume I saw walking down the street was a 7 ft big bad wolf! It was amazing!
Later in the week, on the 30th of October, We ( Ron, Kasia, Boss, Daisy, and I) went to the 2nd street dog walk and trick or treat event! All the pups were dressed up and we had a blast seeing the other pups. I gotta say, the Boss and Daisy were quite a hit!!! Who wouldn’t love cute weiner dogs dressed up and a banana and a gorilla !? Ron was a bad-ass stelph ninja. Kasia was a Geisha. I was a bad tennis player today…It looked like I had been slammed by tennis balls hit by Serena Wlliams! They had treats for the dogs and us. Kasia and I got a martini drink on our trick or treating adventure!!! We got offered beer and Tito’s at another shop! OH HAPPY HALLOWEEEEN TO US!
