Never burn a bridge!

One lesson that I have learned in life is never to burn a bridge. You never know when people's paths will cross again or if you might one day need a favor. Or if they might hire you for a freelance gig :-)

At least I got to walk around Boston...

So yeah, today's interview. WASTE OF TIME! I had a bad feeling about it. And I should have canceled, but hindsight is 20/20. These people were not looking for a designer. It was a cool space and the people seemed nice, but not the place for me. I was in the office for 15 minutes. So I spent some time walking around Boston and enjoying the weather. Went to a few of my fave stores on Newbury Street - i.e. 1154 Lill, LUSH, and of course Starbucks. Did a lot of walking so that was good. So a bit of a waste, but not entirely. Overall, thumbs up day.

Job Hunting

Oh how I do not enjoy the whole process. I have an interview tomorrow in Boston. A very small company. The job sounds interesting but not sure it is ideal or if I am even fully qualified. But, I could learn a lot I think. We'll see how it goes. I don't like interviews. I don't think many people do really. It is a bit of a show. I try to be as "me" as possible, but often find myself slipping into buzz word lingo or body language poses. Ugh. Oh well.

The market is very slow. Anyone who says this is not a recession is full of crap!

You gotta start somewhere

So I decided to jump on the blogging bandwagon and create a blog. I can't promise words of wisdom, or even a lot of interesting info. But, it's mine and I can write whatever I want to.

Things I am into right now: Building a freelance business/Job searching. Learning web design. The No "S" Diet.

Now if I could only be into exercise......
