Trying to Remain Unfazed

I am assembling some mailings that must reach their destinations by Friday. Things are not turning out that great at the moment.

  • I must have used up all my "nice paper" in the final flurry of JobQuest2010 mailings. Did not give it a single thought while I was at the office supply store making photocopies today after work.
    I guess plain white paper will have to do.

  • I have hard copy confirmation of only one of my three required clearances, even though I reapplied for everything (including getting fingerprinted for the millionth time in my life) last July when I signed my new contract. I checked with the H.R. office*, and they don't have anything, either--other than the copy of the one thing I have!
    I will be writing an explanatory paragraph about that little oversight in my cover letter.

Yeah, so none of this stuff bodes well, but at least I tried. That said, it has been my experience in the past that every once in a while, there does come that unexpected response (i.e., not a rejection).

*How did I ask about them without raising any red flags? Well, I have been thinking about taking a summer job working with kids, so. . . I do need them and that's not lying.

Personally, I try really hard to believe that what is meant to be will work out. Sometimes, believing that is a struggle, but in hindsight, it generally looks that way. Good luck!

Aw, thanks, ladies. I do keep telling myself that whatever happens is what's supposed to happen. But it doesn't make opening the bills any easier.

your perspective is interesting. for some things i like to say it is what it is, but for others, like job hunting, arent you supposed to be all go getter and aggressive and stuff? dunno.
