The end and the beginning.

The full circle. What begins must end. Each ending is a beginning in disguise. The force has a light side and a dark side, not unlike duct tape.

Last year sucked. There's no other description for it. I was alienated at work, had been betrayed by one best friend, ditched by another (after letting him sleep on my couch for 2 months), no love life, and (for most of the year) in love with a divorcee who didn't know I knew he was divorced, and so wouldn't date me.

Suckful much?

Well this year is really shaping up to be a good one. Its only a few days old and already it holds the promise of a new social life. The girls from findafuck are really nice. Generous to a fault, non judgemental and completely understanding. They've been through some serious shit in their lives. But its more than that. Around them I am comfortable. I feel like I've known them forever. Went over to one of their places for dinner on Sunday (met for the first time on Saturday) and was there til 11. I helped out with the food prep and serving. It felt like I'd been there forever. And was with them again on Monday - met the parents of one of them and had dinner with her family.

Then there's the job front. I had an interview on Monday. By the time I get home I have a message on facebook. One of the girls I went to uni with in Queensland, 3 years ago, is working for the company I interviewed for. The creepy bit is that she grew up in Victoria too! So we've been emailing each other for the past two days. I had a second interview today and we caught up for an hour or so beforehand. It was absolutely fantastic!

The interview itself was ok. I thought I did quite well, but there is no denying I don't have the experience with their products. Though as I left one of the guys who interviewed me did say he hoped to see me working upstairs in the next few weeks. So fingers crossed.

Though if it doesn't work out there is the high liklihood of another interview in the next week or two. Same job I'm doing now, same location, different facility, different people.

Wish me luck.

GOOD-LUCK!

I've always found that it's one thing to SAY you can do it, and another to give an example of when you have DONE it.

Make your skills transferable if you haven't actually done it before, and apply that to their requirements. If they can't see that, they're dim.

phish babes...you go there and you sell yourself...No honey, don't ask for money...Sell your talents...no babes...pull his zipper up.

Just nod and put your shoulders back and you stick the girls out. That's how I got as a VP in this forune 500 company. And babes, you have the rack to make President. woohoo.

Good luck sweetie. My fingers are crossed and wishing you the best.

I do wish you luck Phishy but it sounds to me like you dont' need any - you just rely on all those attributes you already have and you're gonna be fine. There is no way you won't rise to the top!
