Opportunities, Work

All the jobs!

Whenever I would get frustrated by the lack of results I’ve had in the past three months of job hunting, my friends would always attribute to it being summertime and everyone being on vacation. They promised that the interviews would come after or near Labor Day. They were right. I’ve been on two interviews since Labor Day and have turned down three others.

Why did I turn down three others? Because I got a job offer! It was my first interview after Labor Day and I just hit it off with my interviewers.

On a weight loss journey

I used to go to the gym regularly – almost 2-3 times per week. I would wake up around 4.45 AM to get ready for the gym, and then spend 30-45 minutes circuit training.

Funnily enough, just last week, my friend and I were in the city for a summer festival by the water, and I remarked to her how great it would be to work in the area.

My first day was nice. There was another new hire, who had a Serenity quote on the back of his car, so we bonded a bit on that. Someone also celebrated his birthday during my first day, so that was nice. All in all, I have a good feeling about this job, especially since all of my other previous ones haven’t been great.

Looks like the tarot lady’s first prediction came true…
