The 90th Party

So after a few months of planning my grandpa's 90th birthday party is finally over.  I was not the only one involved.  Other family members were involved in printing the invitations, getting the RVSPs, and putting together the party favors.  I did some organizing and making a photo DVD.

There were about 230 people that attended and everybody had a good time.  Seeing old friends and distant family members is always great.  I wish I could see them more often but everybody is busy with work, kids, and life.  So I cherish the times when I can see them

The joys and stupidity of reality TV

So I get sucked into a whole of insane reality shows.  From Big Brother to 19 kids and Counting to Shahs of Sunset to name a few.  It's like watching high school kids in a frat house that has religious kids running around.

Some of the shows are just so comical, like Shahs of Sunset.  I'm sure there are grown ass adults who are filthy rich but do they really live off of their parents and never work a day.  You never see them laying around watching themselves on TV.  No they are shopping or drinking somewhere.  Not to mention it's all high school drama.  Crap all that fooling around with everyone happened back when I was in high school.  Makes me wonder if they ever went to high school or just saved the drama for their adult ass lives.

Nineteen kids, really.  For me that's insane but whatever makes them happy to help raise all the kids.  I just cannot imagine changing all those diapers.  It's like you change diapers and feed babies for 20 years.  Really who wants to be tied down like that.

It's not like you actually see real life on TV unless you are watching the news. There is no show with me on it with my struggles of finding a job, loosing weight or just being a goofy blonde.
I'm sure I will keep watching these shows and being sucked into not so reality TV.  But it does add some comic relief.

Day 2 of the new job and other stuff

Today was day 2 of the job.  So far I really enjoy it and the people are all nice.  I think this was the best job decision of all the jobs I had interviews for.  I know I will be able to learn and I know I will bring something to them.  I cannot wait to see what the days, weeks, and months bring in this job.

While I am working on finding my own footing it seems like reality throws a wrench in the mix.  Family members get sick and while I am sympathetic to it all I also live in reality and don't always show the sympathetic side of me.  But sometimes that is what people need in a time of need.  It is hard to face reality and I am usually a ball of emotions and the timing isn't always right.   But those who truly know me know that deep down I not a mean hearted person or a bitch.  Rather a person who has multiple sides.  Not all may like it but I cannot run to everybody's side to help.  I can pass on what knowledge I have and go on.

The next week and a half will be spent getting ready for my grandpa's 90th birthday.  It will be a lot of fun and he will be surprised with some things I have planned at the party.  He does know about the party and he is looking forward to it.

Oh yea back in the game

So out of all the interviews on Friday, Monday, and Tuesday(there were 4), I get the temporary to permanent position that I interview for on Tuesday.  While the manager did the majority of the talking, I must have made a great impression because I got it.  Now I could waited to see if I was offered anything from the interview the day before because money wise it could have been better, I felt the 1 on Tuesday was a better fit for me as far as company culture.

Both would have been fast past and both you need to be detailed orientated in I just felt this company was better suited.  It's family owned and all the employees were awesome.  So I have a temp to perm postion and in about 90 days if it all works out I'll be permanent.  Money will be tight but there are a few times a year when theres overtime so I will make it ok.

The highest and lowest point

This past week has had it's lowest and highest points.  Last Friday I had to put my cat down.  She was 18 years old and had either a stroke or a blood clot that became loose and went to her brain.  She couldn't walk and there was something going in with her brain.

So while I was trying to look for a job this happens and sends me further into a negative mind set.  So  I start go out a few times over the weekend and hang out with friends.  This did perk me up.  Then comes Monday evening and I get a call from the one staffing agency and they have a temporary receptionist job on Tuesday.  They said it could be for 1 day or it could go until Friday.  Well, I get called back Wednesday and Thursday.  They wanted me for today(Friday) but I had a job interview.  So on Thursday I had a phone interview that the agency set up with me.  Turns out the company wants to do a face to face interview.  I also get a call from another recruiter at the same agency to say a project I finished on March 10 wants me back on a part time basis.  It seems that I am popular.

At this time I feel really good and positive.  I have a part time job and a few interviews set up for permanent and temporary to permanent position.  So things are looking more positive and I am much happier.

Things always have a way of working out.  Just give it time and reach out when you need help.  As well as hanging with positive people.

When one door closes another opens

While the agency didn't know that my assignment was ending, I found out on Tuesday with an hour left of the day. I called them and found that the same company I was doing a project on needed an admissions admin in another department.  So they sent my resume over today and I have an interview. 

I also contacted some other agencies to get the ball running witht them too. I need to have all the people looking while I'm looking too. The more the merrier. 

Yes, it's hard to keep going through this but I have to stay positive so I can stay focused. I pray, hope, and apply to everything I can.

Yet another Direct Sales company

I love all things about about direct sales companies.  I have tried quite a few and have stuck with 2 so far.  I love both Gold Canyon Candles and Origami Owl Jewelry.  But I had to add another one.  I added For Tails Only.  While to some it may seem like I am not dedicated to any one company, in reality that is not the case.  I love everything about each company and I can do each one equally.  Its like the stores we shop at they have multiple items they sell.  So as a consultant theres no reason why I cannot. Unlike the stores I only sell one type of jewelry, pet food, and candles.

With candles and jewelry once I get bigger team I will need to decide what company to sell.  At this time I am not close but will continue working each one and see what happenss

So if you feel like shopping or are looking for something to sell, check them out and ask me any questions or concerns you have.
