who would've thunk it?

Little did I know that last Wednesday, when my mom and I had the blow-out and I quit, that it would lead to the most exciting job prospect ever!

I started to put my resume out and I was encouraged by the number of people in my own circle who thought that I could fill a position at their place of business. Originally, I was thrilled that a good friend of mine who works at Diablo Magazine had an opening in the marketing department. However, I just interviewed for the most awesome position ever. Do you want to know why it's so awesome? I would be the first, the only and the main person in charge of re-vamping their image. The first project is huge. I mean a WHOPPER. However, what I'm doing now is trying to make myself valuable for the future, as well. There is so much room for growth in this company. I would be walking-in right at the perfect moment.

Please pray for me. If I could define a job that I would love, be passionate about and absolutely thrive in - this would be it. I would do this job for free! Of course, I cannot do that, because I have a mortgage payment, but this is the stuff I love to do. Oh man, I hope I get it!

For all of you Mac users out there: Keynote is my new best friend! Wow! It's totally awesome. I created my own "Marla-commercial" for my portfolio and it totally blew-away the woman I interviewed with. I have to play with it some more, but she was impressed with it. You can do so much with keynote and it looks so professional. I can't believe it. It puts PowerPoint to shame - absolute, friggin' shame.

Whopper projects are (1) lots of fun, (2) great experience, and (3) totally up your alley. Image and branding is extra hot right now...and you're a natural at it.

You would not do it for free, mortgage or no. You're talents are worth something in the marketplace, lady. But find a job you love and you'll never work a day in your life, right?

Dear God, please shine your light into the noggin of the interviewer to help her realize you totally just answered her prayers.

Amen.

(Dude, you said pray. Tomato, tom-ah-to.)
