How 'Bout It?
I was sitting in my rocking chair holding S this afternoon and remembered the time I had to pick out clothes for my two interviewees in a mock 'client session' at Anthropologie.
Um, yeah, I used to dream of working there. Constant inspiration, beautiful people, excellent discounts, etc. Except I was more of the awkward, creative, people watcher than the bold, customer service provider and I had a small pregnant bump that narrowed my wardrobe to two cute outfits. The first one I was able to wear to the interview. I felt good in my black, sleeveless, jersey, wrap dress, fitted denim jacket and blonde cowboy boots. I sold myself to those two polished, poised and petite sales reps but knew I wasn't meant to be there. I needed a job but Anthropologie wasn't the one for me. I waited to hear from them and finally called to see what the verdict was. They were polite but told me I wasn't what they were looking for at that time but to try back in a few months. Bluh.
I look back now and see how wrong I was for the job. It was one of those dreams that wasn't meant to be but I'm so proud of myself for making it through that interview and trying something so uncomfortable. I ended up working two PT jobs that gave me experience in my minor and also prepared me for motherhood. I doubt Anthropologie could've lived up to that. Nevertheless, I still request their catalogs and drool over the loveliness inside.
So, this post is your space to tell me about something you have done/are doing that you are proud of. Tell us a story.
And remember... awkward, creative, people watchers are fabulous.
