1.) The crazy situation about this potential j o b.
I interviewed last Wednesday for the Executive Assistant position for a rapidly growing real firm. I would be the Executive Assistant to the CEO. The more I read and learn about this company, the more I yearn for this job. Who knows the opportunities that could come from this and I am praying relentlessly that I will get that call. The CEO of the company has won so many awards, she is so well known, and the firm is rated number 12 by the Wall Street Journal of top real estate company's in the US. What is so crazy about this whole damn thing is, I applied for this job nearly 2 months ago. They called for an interview in August and I accepted, but then a meeting came up and I had to cancel the interview. I called back a few days later to reschedule and from that point, it was a ping pong match of back and forth emails to find a convenient time for both myself and the company. I was tired of it, I did not think it would work out so I just gave up trying to interview with them. But they kept contacting me. So then two weeks ago when I came to the decision that I had to leave my current job, I decided that maybe I really do need to give this real estate company and chance and go interview with them. I was leaving my position and they were still trying to get me to come in for an interview. It made perfect sense and it also felt like fate working its way into my life. Last Wednesday the time had finally come. It was a killer had interview with that CEO and I felt kindred and connected with her. She is exactly how I want to be in 20 years. I have been obsessing and waiting by the phone for this job ever since. She called my references last Thursday (which were great) and that is all I know at this point. I have not been told either way. I sent a follow up email Wednesday evening and no reply thus far. I have been keeping up with the firm via Facebook and Twitter and they have had several events going on this week plus an awards ceremony for the CEO who has won yet another award. I am hoping that she has just been way too busy and will make a point to contact me either way soon. I promise to not write about it anymore, unless I get the job. Have you ever been offered a job, but it took them 1-3 weeks or maybe even longer to call you to offer it? You thought there was no way you landed the position but actually did get it?
2.) Training my r e p l a c e m e n t
Since I am leaving my current company as they are cutting costs and closing the office I work in and making everyone transition to our manufacturer an hour away (which I cannot do), I have been training my replacement. In addition to her current duties at our manufacturer, she will now be taking over my position. Again, another way the company can cut costs (it's that bad) and let me tell you all, that has been absolutely exhausting. By the end of the day I feel like I have ran a marathon, plus a sore throat. My job is really complicated so I am having to create training manuals to help the woman learn. The below picture is only half of them!
3.) Captain P h i l l i p s
I am a member of GoFoBo, they send invites to advanced screenings of movies that are coming soon. I am not sure how you can become a member. I think you have to be invited. I joined through my Regal members card. If you know me, you know I spend way too much with Regal so I get to go to these screenings often. I am a junkie. This week we saw "Captain Phillips". All I can say is GO SEE THIS MOVIE! It is absolutely worth every penny! The movie is incredible and a true story. I was on the edge of my seat the entire time. The action, cast, and story line is impeccable. Tom Hanks never ceases to me amaze me with his acting skills. He was definitely born for this. 5 stars all of the way.
4.) China G l a z e
Every girl needs a little pampering once in a while. I recently bought some fun new China Glaze colors. I gave myself a homemade pedicure last night with this fun new color.
5.) P i c t u r e s
To celebrate true blog fashion, I have a bunch of a little random pictures from the week. The first one is Marty being adorable on his giant tower scratch post. The second picture, beside of Marty, is Charlie and Dottie watching their daddy talking on his phone on the deck. It was so cute. The third picture is Marty sleeping in one of my gym/laundry bags. Marquis texted me that picture when I was at work. Apparently he was missing his mommy - so cute! The fourth picture is Marty laid back, being as cute as ever. The bottom two pictures are some treats I have enjoyed this week. The "Orange Refresher" from Starbucks; I rarely ever go to Starbucks, but that Orange Refresher is the exception. It tastes natural and delicious, it's not sugary or filled with fake sugar crap. I love it. Lastly there is a Quest bar. It is hands down the healthiest and most nutritious protein bar on the market.They are a little pricy, but they are buy 3 get 1 free at GNC, I would go try one!
Have a great weekend guys!
