What a Sh!t Storm of a Month…

I’ll say it again…this month felt like a complete sh!t storm.

At the beginning of it, my boyfriend and I decided to randomly road trip to Denver. All was fine and dandy until I  just so happened to book the Amtrak tickets hours before the one derailed in Philadelphia. Then one afternoon I got a phone call for a possible job opportunity, so naturally I pushed through as far as I could. To make a lengthy story short, there ended up being scheduling conflicts and after a lot of emotional stress for one week solid, I ended up turning down the job.

I applied for 5 jobs before I began my vacation and received an immediate rejection email…naturally.

On the bright side, today I got an email from a company that seems like the real deal and they want to follow up with me further about a possible copywriter position. I’m super excited because I might FINALLY get a job in my field and all of this waiting bullsh!t will be over with. I even negotiated a little, so I feel cool.

The transition is already much more comfortable, but I’m not jinxing it. I learned to just go with the flow and keep it on the down-low. Yeah, I rhymed on purpose. I’m keeping an optimistic attitude and usually when crap like this happens, my monthly article gets published for Roaming Hunger and suddenly I feel better again.

I love this job the most.

By the way, you folks wish you had french fries like these in your town.

Note to readers: I also want to encourage anyone and everyone to take a random road trip to anywhere they want to go. If you have the money and the time…just book it. You’ll be happy you did.

Hiiiii.

I feel the need to shout “I’m back!” Since I haven’t posted in awhile, here’s some news.

I took a cooking class at Eataly with Lidia Bastianich. The woman is a remarkable soul who knows how to cook.

As of next month I will have an article that I structured/edited published in Special Parent magazine. It’s about a wonderful family of a child with Down Syndrome and its a project that’s close to my heart.

I just wrapped up my article for Roaming Hunger this month and today I got to eat some bad ass French fries or “Frites” as they are called at this establishment.

And I FINALLY got an update from my recruiter and have a phone interview for a FT job tomorrow morning. She’s going to prep me and everything, so…fingers crossed! 

I’m also taking a mini train trip to Denver next week to hopefully celebrate this new chapter!

Now stare at some French fries made with home made bacon, yes, bacon made in house, cheese sauce and scallions.
