More Pumpkins and Good Things
Added another pumpkin to my Etsy shop. The pumpkin craze continues!
I am FINALLY feeling like I can see a light at the end of the tunnel. The flood gates are opening up at last!
I've had 2nd interviews with 2 banks in the last couple of weeks, another company called me Monday, I interviewed with them Tuesday, and they called me today for another interview next Tuesday. I no sooner hung up with them than another company called and I'm scheduled for an interview with them on Monday!
This is all so crazy. 7 months of desperately applying and trying to get looked at and/or an interviews, getting only a handful of interviews in 7 months, and lots of rejections. Then in August going through 4 rounds of interviews with a company, only to get turned down, and now this avalanche of opportunities.
I'm trying not to get too excited because they are only opportunities at the moment, but holy cow, this is incredible. Companies are interested in ME!
For you other frustrated people out there - hang in there - it's not over till the fat lady sings.
Thank you all for months of encouraging me through my frustrations.
I'm driving up to NY tomorrow. My sister is giving me a piece of furniture which I can gladly use to replace the dresser my son took with him when he moved out last weekend. My mom lives up there too so I'll see her as well. Looking forward to seeing the family.
