Hi. Struggling today.
I’m over this coronapalooza. Make it stop, please. I seem to be in a funk of epic proportions and I need to get over it somehow. I just wish the world felt safe. I know we all do, but it seems that there are two types of people in the world right now: (1) those who are being super careful about staying safe and healthy, and (2) those who seem to think that nothing ever happened or that nothing will happen to them!
And never the twain shall meet.
I’m tired today. I guess maybe even a little hungover. I did a talk last night on Instagram Live with a woman in the fashion industry who I’ve known for years, and it felt a little bit like a live job interview with several people looking on. Granted, not that many people tuned in (thank GOD), but I really didn’t know who would be watching as we both posted a flyer for the “event” on all of our social media links (mainly LinkedIn, but also FB and IG, of course).
Anyway, when it was over, the interviewer called me to chat about it and other stuff and I ended up drinking about ¾ of a bottle of wine just discussing.
Woke today just feeling lousy. I haven’t done much.
Tomorrow I have a phone interview with HR for a job that, from the description, sounds like a perfect fit. Please wish me luck with the HR person so that I can get on to an actual interview with the hiring manager. I’m ready for something very, very good to happen in the near future.
Still NO word from current/former company about the “temporary” layoff. The end date of the 8 weeks is June 5th, and we’re supposed to hear something the week before, so…I guess that means next week. I would very much like to have a job over the summer, but I am now of the mindset that it needs to be bigger, bolder, BETTER.
And I do have to admit that I’m sooooo grateful that the country is opening up as I’m just starting to see opportunities happening. I am just crossing my fingers that we are doing it safely and carefully. PLEASE DON’T FUCK THIS UP, FELLOW HUMANS.
I was going to go to Lovely Leah’s today/tonight to socially-distance hang with her in her backyard, but I had to tell her that I’m really in no shape to hang. She was cool about it, but I do feel pretty bad because we rarely see each other.
Meh. I feel gross right now. I think I might take a little nap.
