April 27,2011..job hunt!!!

Ahhh the job hunt..had a telephone interview for a seasonal job up the canyon this morning. It was pleasant, and I hope I get it but I was told there were others being interviewed. So patience is the name of the game.
I have an interview Friday afternoon for a phone job pays well..but I have so far taken 3 tests! Word problems, math problems,and a personality test! I wonder what these tests really tell someone. They ask the same question over and over again in different ways and quite honestly..I get tired of them. I have taken a few and not gotten the maybe I am flunking the personality tests!!! I have now taken the tack that my honesty can be brutal..but I am not trying to say what I think they want to hear. Frankly..I don't care. You see the real me in an interview and on the job. You will see that I am dependable and friendly with customers and can do a job. Isn't that what you want? Also I am not a thief..always a plus for retail jobs. Who cares if I feel aloof sometimes or want to be liked..what kind of questions are those anyway?
It reminds me of the snoopy co-worker who wants to know more than needed and sometimes uses it to undermine your position..yes I have run into them..
But that said..I really don't want some jobs. I know I need the money but do I need the hassle and invasion of privacy?
What does this have to do with art? Nothing.
I did go to the craft store yesterday and bought some more glitter, ink,2 canvas boards with deep cradles..6x6 inches, some more embossing powder and a few bottle of acrylic paint..only .99 cents!
What am I doing? I really don't know but whatever it is will be fun.
I am going to try to get to the studio this week and cut mats for 2 long paintings to enter in the Utah County Art Show on Sat.
Oops i have to get my drivers' license renewed too. Now you have to have 3 forms of proof you are who you are and that flimsy social security card better not be laminated!!! Well mine is since it is over 40 years I have to get out a w2 tax form that has my SS#.
More issues.
oh well...I am posting pictures of my yard from Monday. We were supposed to have had a hard freeze last night so hope the apricots, cherries and peach tree didn't get harmed.


  1. Ne perdez pas confiance... Tout vient à point à qui sait attendre ... en attendant vous êtes riche en créativité, ne perdez pas cela de vue.
    Gros bisous.

  2. I like the idea that you are confident enough to present your true and not "play the game". I hope in time you find the perfect fit in your next job and that they appreciate your authentic self.
