This week, I'm celebrating:
The Best Unsuccessful Job Interview I've Ever Had I appreciate that this may sound a little confusing- how can an unsuccessful job interview be 'the best'? Well, when you go into it knowing (or at least being pretty certain) that you don't want the job but are simply trying to make a connection with someone in the company you end up with a lot more leg room than normal. I was far less nervous than I have been in the past when interviewing for jobs that I really wanted or needed, so I was able to talk myself up without fear of sounding like a suck-up. And when it came out that no, this was definitely NOT a job I wanted, we actually got to discuss other potential positions for me. And that, my friends, is a serious win! They say the key to finding that perfect job is making in-roads and I really think I made one this week. So yeah- celebration time!
Halloween Is Coming I am a bit of a nut when it comes to the scariest holiday and, when not making conscious efforts to curtail this, can go a bit overboard. Well, I fell off the wagon this week. I spent hours- literally, hours- looking online at decorations, activities, costumes, goodies to make and scary things to do. My Amazon cart is filled with decorations that I so don't need but seriously want and i've clicked through more "look inside!" book previews than I can count. I've booked activities for one weekend in October and am quickly filing out the rest in my mind with pre-requisite apple picking and haunted house visits. And I'm indulging in a whole lot of daydreaming. Yeah, I'm a bit obsessed. But it's SO much fun!
What are you all celebrating this wekk? Time to hop around and find out!
