Christmas Countdown - 2013

Good evening!
I am turning in soon, I had a super busy day and I'm exhausted. I will catch up tomorrow. Just wanted to let you all know I was in the mall this afternoon and was offered a job with Yankee Candle!!! The hiring manager was in the store when I made my purchase, she must have liked how enthusiastic I was about their products. We started chatting and before I knew it she had me fill out an application and offered me a part time job. She wants to start training me on Thursday. I absolutely love that store. I really want to do it and I'm praying that I can handle it. My youngest has her drivers license now so maybe it will work out since the girls are all driving. I will keep you posted!!
Good night everyone, sweet dreams!

Can you not turn down the extra stuff?
I got home around 7 p.m. No, I don't have any say in it. I answer to the traffic people, who answer to the account people, who answer to the clients. So if a client suddenly wants something on a short turnaround, or wants to make last-minute changes at 5:30, it must be done. That's the advertising biz. Today it was a billboard and a last-minute ad. Just seems like it's been happening more frequently lately. To look on the bright side ... at least we've got clients and plenty of work. We aren't twiddling our thumbs and laying people off. But it's so inconvenient sometimes, because you rarely know in advance when you have to stay late. To be fair, the agency I work for is better than most in terms of trying to minimize late work and weekend work. At other agencies, staying late often means past midnight. For us, past 8 p.m. Is unusual.

That's amazing! Congratulations! (I wish it was that easy to get a part-time job here. No matter how enthusiastic I always am in the bookstore when I make my purchases, they never hire me.)

Have a nice day everyone! <3 (Can't believe it's Wednesday already.)
