Day 4 With Mom



I'm sure you guys must be getting a bit bored with the "OMG MOM'S VISITING" posts, but this is almost the last one. Sadface. I will be sad to see my mom go. We've been having so much fun wandering around my neighborhood and checking out cool vintage stores. We even found these awesome old school games:



My mom had the Blip game on the top right. Apparently you had to like... wind it up? And an LED light would move around on the screen? Old school! I lol'd.


I decided to show my mom how I take my usual outfit shots, so we posed together and it was super dorky and fun.






I'm wearing: F21 skirt, American Eagle tee, GoJane shoes, Gap scarf thingy worn as bow tie, Ralph Lauren sunglasses, Urban Outfitters backpack.


So let me elaborate on the stupid job sitch. Turns out the job I interviewed for last Thursday, the one I really wanted, decided to temporarily put a hold on hiring, for an indefinite period of time. So nobody's getting hired. But the part that makes it so frustrating is that I was on the top of the list of people to be hired! So I almost had it, but not. I was so crushed when I heard this, and was embarrassingly crying at the entrance to the Japanese Garden... it was awful. I also thought I was going to be offered a job at Netflix, but turns out they just wanted me for a "face-to-face" interview, which is a group interview, and will involve role-playing and practice customer calls. I want to kill myself just thinking about it. Also it's in Hillsboro, which is like a million miles away... I'm just so discouraged. Oh well, at least I have some prospects. I also have a "seminar" at the Apple Store on Monday, and that would be a cool job, I think. But ugh I so wanted that other job, and I would've had it, but no, they aren't hiring anymore... sigh. Real life sucks btw.

Enough ranting! I had a great day today, and after my interview tomorrow we're going to Multnomah Falls, which should be really nice. Especially after role-playing... blergh!

Shibby said...

Dont worry about the job the right one will come along when you least expect it :)

I dont envy your role-playing but you may as well have fun and make the most of it =)

Have a wonderful day :)

Jenn said...

You look very cute and sort of remind me of Zoeey Deschanel. :) Lovely outfit and blog.

Helen said...

That's so awful about the job :( Did they say that they might start hiring for that job again soon? You never know!

Try and keep the faith, although I know how hard it can be. When I finished Uni I was applying for any and every job and wasn't even getting interviews for the lowest paid ones. Then I just happened upon the job I'm in now and it gets better and better. You WILL get something xx

Finding a job S-U-C-K-S. I'm sorry to hear about the one that got away. :( Maybe when they do decide to hire again they'll keep you in mind.

Try not to think about it and enjoy your mom time! :)

All of your mommy and me adventures are so sweet! It's fun to see all the adventures you two have gone on together. It sounds as though it's been a great visit so far!

I love love love your photos (especially the one with your mom; double shot of style!). The little pops of red are so much fun, and the skirt is just darling with the little buttons and stripes! Totally awesome neck scarf, as well. Good luck role playing! (eek!)
