Smitten with Him

grown-up stuff happens here sometimes


on August 8, 2015

…or perhaps they *should* be…

A week ago Tuesday, two days after I got back from my visit to Houston, I had a job interview.

I was kind of excited about it because it would be working for a very large, very successful company with benefits that I do not have at my current position.

Conversely, the afternoon before, for extraneous reasons, I was seriously thinking about cancelling. But, rather than discourage myself further, I just decided that I was going to do it, or rather that I HAD to do it.

TC was excited for me. He took time out of his hectic morning to encourage me. It felt lovely! I was even going to post the conversation here, but my Verizon account is messing up right now and I can’t take screen pics of my texts *sigh*

I thought the interview went very well.

Once I finished up with the Departmental portion of the interview, they told me they would be calling me for a second interview so I could meet with the rest of the team.

After that I met briefly with the gentleman from Human Resources who had initially contacted me.

He explained that someone would contact me by Friday, August 7th either way: interested or not.

No one called…

    Darling Girl – I am sorry – it’s horrible that feeling x. Hold strong, it was not meant to be x be patient – grow your faith and love in yourself – and you will see extraordinary things start to happen x

    • You are so sweet. I try every day to build myself up. Some days there are back steps. This past week was a test. I made it through and I think I learned a lot. But now it’s definitely time to knock back some vodka and smoke a big fat joint! ❤ ❤ Thank you so much for being here!

        i adore you – simply adore you – if you ever want to vent – you know my email – and i would be so happy so sit and listen and hold your hand… you pour the drinks and i’ll roll xxx

        I so hope you are standing in front of the bathroom mirror – like i told you – making yourself laugh while you tell yourself that you are amazing- and my love you are – does really help xxx

        • Thank you. You are SO kind ❤
          Right now I cannot stand in front of anything and say that, but it will come and I will force myself. Probably Monday when I have to be a part of the real world again.

        I’ve been thinking so much about you lately … I wish you had someone to put their hands on your shouiders, and look you square in those pretty eyes of yours and drum it into that pretty head that you are divine and lovely and worth all the goodness x

        • Awww…. Thank you! I don’t know how to respond, except that I am flattered that you think about me.

          I had TC who was doing all that. Regardless, it doesn’t matter if someone says it to me or not. I have to believe it to make it so 🙂 So, I will just keep standing in front of that mirror and telling myself that I AM awesome!

          • miss agatha armstrong says:

            you are awesome – and you are so close…. you know its you that has to finally say it…. and my lovely lovely gentle girl – you will and a whole new world will be waiting x

    I read a blog called askamanager and people are always writing in on how they didn’t get responses when they said they would. I wouldn’t be too concerned yet. Companies can be notoriously slow on getting back to candidates. Someone is out sick, someone is on vacation, etc. give it a few days and then maybe send an email reiterating your interest in the job. Then it’s put it out of your mind and move on. Good luck! And I hope they call you next week.

    I totally agree with Kay. On monday go ahead and contact them. Some companies are really slow about their hiring process. I think you should go ahead and call. Even if the answer is still “no”. If the opportunity arises you should still tell them that your interested in the position. Just in case who they did choose doesnt work out. Xoxo

    • Thank you! You’re both right. I will call their HR guy Monday afternoon. And, thank you for telling me to remind them that I would still be interested if they opportunity presented itself! I didn’t even think of that. XOXO ❤
