Number Two

Two seems to be my number lately.

I had my interview two weeks ago.

I just found out late last week that I am number two on the prospective employer's list...hopefully, they interviewed MORE than two.

However, I'm still in limbo as to whether or not I get a job there. Even though I wasn't their first choice, they still want to "make room" for me. So, maybe it will be a couple months or a couple years that I'll get the call saying they want me. Will I still be available is the question.

I plan on still searching out another job. I can't stay where I'm at right now. Just not a great (or lucrative) place to be.

So, if you want to find me, start looking in should find me there, but hopefully, I won't have to be there TOO long.

Yeah, yeah, yeah...I know it's been too long

I know it's been far too long to go without a DG update. I apologize. It just seems that my relationship with Blogger has cooled over time. I guess the newness of it has worn off and we are out of the 'Honeymoon phase.' I do hope you can forgive me and stop back now and then to see if I've updated.

So, I know you're all just on the edge of your seats wanting to know what I've been up to lately, right???

Well, here goes....

I'm still at the same job I've been at, unhappily. However, I have been putting out resumes so I'm hoping that things will begin to look up! Please keep your fingers crossed and/or say a prayer that something good happens. I would appreciate it!

As for the jewelry biz, I'm getting exactly what I'm putting into it....not much. I'm just having a difficult time getting over my loathing of the telephone. I really don't like calling people that I hardly know and asking them if they'd like to have a jewelry party. The other thing is that some people won't get back to me even when I contact them by phone and e-mail. That's frustrating!! I don't want to be a pest, so I don't contact them a lot, but if they would just be polite and respond to me, I would be most grateful.

Ok...would love to say there is more, but there's not. Or perhaps I just want to leave you wanting for more??? You can decide for yourself.

Until then, hope you have a groovy day!

Yes, it's been a while...

I know Phats is probably the only one really anticipating my return, so, Phats, here ya go! Hope it's everything you thought it would be....and more! So, what have I been doing since I last graced this part of the blog-o-sphere? Seems like a whole heck of a lot of nothing.

Work has been going in a different direction for me and not really the way I'd like. With the state of the economy the past year or so being what it has been, the company I work for had to lay-off some of our staff. Then, they decided that it was time to take away some of our pay. 10% to be exact. That might not seem like a lot, but when you're not making as much as you should be with the education you have, it's quite a hit. Especially when they also increase our health insurance costs.


Now, I know you're sitting there thinking, "Why, DG, you should just be thankful that you HAVE a job." Yes, I should be. But, somehow, it's just not that simple.

I have been searching a bit for a new gig, but, alas, they just aren't that abundant...or at least ones that I'm qualified for or in a state in which I'd like to live.

One thing I have done to help my situation is to start my own business. Not a design business...yet. I've started selling jewelry. Cheesy as it may be, I get a good commission on what I sell, so keep your fingers crossed that I do well at it. I had my first party last Friday during a snowstorm and it turned out ok. Show number two is this Friday.

Well, that's about it for now. Phats, I hope you enjoyed it!
