Well, I’ve been holding out on posting anything because I wanted to have news of my job interview results. Well, there is news and it is bad, I suppose. I didn’t get the job. Poop. But I did come in like second (though the anal perfectionist in me still quips: second is still losing!) And they’re going to keep me on file for however many months incase something else comes up. And hey, I didn’t cry! =D And I totally expected myself too, but nuh-uh! This upper lip is Viagra-quality stiff!

So yeah, that’s lame. No bookoo paycheck, no benefits, no end to the incessant questions about school and what I’m doing with my life, and no business trip to Rancho Cordova (LMAO). Door slammed…. Buuuuuuuuut, because there’s always a big butt, there’s some cracked windows.

I got a call Wednesday from Curves (FYI ladies-only gym), asking if I was still interested in working there. Dudes, I applied there in like October XD But I said yes, because I never turn down a job interview, whether I think I want the job or not, because it’s good practice. I’ve been on 10 interviews in my life, have landed 4 and one is still undecided, so I think my track record is relatively good. But that’s neither here nor there, so anyways-

Went in for the interview. The lady was so nice and the job seems like so much fun! She seems to like me too and invited me to come in this morning for a work out and a little training/practice at doing the coach thing. (I don’t have the job yet but I think it all went well). One thing emphasized was being proactive in sales and bringing in clients (you get commissions) and guess what I instigated a sale! Don’t even have the job and I’m makin’ them money! LMAO. Hopefully that worked in my favor.

Right now my goal is to have gotten the Curves job, go back to OARS and balance the two out. I think it’d be an awesome combo. And if Curves doesn’t work out, I still have my beloved river rafting people. They tell me they miss me XD I just hope my boss getting a reference call from the CSS people didn’t put her off hiring me back ;~~; I have to e-mail her before Monday. It’ll all work out. Que sera sera, lol wut?, and all that jazz.

Funny thing about Curves though, if I get it, is the concept of me working as a coach/rather vanilla personal trainer. XD Seriously it’s a big case of this:

Seriously. After I got home from the interview I put on my “I ♥ Carbs” shirt and ate a piece of cake.

You have such a great attitude, it is so refreshing [:

'Viagra-quality stiff'- Bahahahahahahaha! I love it; so clever. This entry was so fun. You are just such a peach to 'listen to' (read). I am sorry about the job, but totally excited for You and the Curves thing! I will definitely be rooting for You in that area.

'Seriously. After I got home from the interview I put on my "I ♥ Carbs" shirt and ate a piece of cake.' <3

Aww, thanks =D I try not to wallow too much in self pity. It just brings others down and I like making people happy. I try to anyway =P

And *squishes* Thank you! I appreciate the support XD I would still laugh Sofa King hard if I ended up working at a gym. XD
