Hey guys! I figured I'd so something different for a change and since people keep asking me to do a room tour, here's a new corner, haha.
Also, I combed out my curls! Weird right... It's been years since I've had relatively straight hair, so it's totally awkward for me to go out without my signature blonde mini 'fro, so I added some volume to the back of my head haha. My mom loves it and thinks I look older, I just feel it matches this 70s outfit better.
On another note, I had an interview for a desk clerk job last week, and I thought I was doing well, when one of the two women asked me if I'd see myself talking to, say, a lawyer or a judge. So I'm like "Yeah sure why not" super casually... And then she goes on about certain "dress codes" and "etiquette" and I'm all *IS THIS REALLY HAPPENING*?
Then she proceeded to ask if I could take out my nose piercing if I got the job. I politely refused.
I realize this is nowhere near being discriminated because of race, religious beliefs, age, sex or disability, because I had a needle jammed through my nostril by choice, and I could take my ring out if I wanted to. But when I walked out of the building, I felt seriously insulted and realized this is only a fraction of what victims of discrimination must feel like. For a 21-year old, I have quite a nice resume, I'm a smooth talker and I smile a lot. But all I was judged on is a little piece of metal through my nostril.
When I left and said something along the lines of "oh that darn nose of mine haha" they told me they hadn't decided if I would get the job or not. On my way home I had actually made up my mind. I don't want to work for a company where people see me as a second class citizen.
I was, and still am in awe. I mean, this is 2012, right?
Right now I have two open applications, one at my former job as a secretary at an eye clinic, which will probably be just for a short time, and one for my dream job. I applied for the latter over a week ago but the job opening is still online, so I really don't know what to expect of it. But I'll just keep hoping for it like the desperate sucker I am, haha.
And some follow up on the process that is my future webshop: I'm being delayed by some stuff that is stuck in customs and I hate it! I wish I could make millions of pretty little bracelets because I have some seriously pretty beads that are not being used and that just makes me sad haha. I've amazed myself at how good everything has turned out, I just have to figure out the best way to package things so they arrive safely yet aesthetically pleasing, haha. I'm so excited about this you guys, you can't even imagine!
Sorry for my pissed off rant, and see you next post!
