Hello, I’m bored. Here’s a quick and lame update of my day.
I woke up at 5:00 am today for a job interview. The moment I opened my eyes, I knew something was off so I immediately went to check my face on the mirror and I was greeted by a swollen, reddish, right eye. I vaguely remember rubbing it in my sleep. Fortunately, I still have my eye drops lying around somewhere and I was able to easily remedy my eye situation.
I’m wearing my mom’s top – for good luck, I guess – and this slacks that I was able to score for *drumroll* just Php 250! It’s really a good deal. I paired this with my pointy flats (sorry I don’t know what to call them except they’re pointy and a real bitch to wear). Always have been a sneaker kind of gal but now, I might have to invest in a good pair of flats soon.
Current situation: sitting at Starbucks, passing time. I’ve been here since 8:30am and it’s now 11:31am. Because I’m not stupid, I misread the text I got from the HR person of the company I have a job interview for. I thought the text said the interview is on November 8, from 8:00 to 11:00. Turns out the text just said November 8, 11:00am. Major facepalm. Totally my fault, I know – but, boy, that could’ve been an extra hour or two of sleep!
Anyway – I’m here now, and I’m quite glad that I’m early, actually, cause now I have some free time to prepare. I ordered a Caramel Macchiato and my favorite baked egg with mozzarella and truffle sandwich two hours ago. My coffee is about to run out and the internet connection is slow, so basically what I’m saying is that I’m about go c r a z y.
Around 10:30 am, I got a call from this said HR and was told the interview was pushed to 1pm. She also told me that she’ll e-mail a test that I could accomplish but I haven’t received anything yet. I’ll check again in another 10 minutes.
My drink is really two sips from being empty. I’m debating with myself whether I should buy another cup but that’d be my third cup of coffee then. I don’t want to be nervous wreck by lunch time so I think I’d pass. I think. But I’m also very sleepy at the moment.
On a totally unrelated note – there are two quotes that I saw on my Twitter feed that resonated with me:
You attract what you fear
You become what you don’t forgive
As I have mentioned quite a few times on this blog already – my life hasn’t been in a good shape what with all the recent events that occurred lately (that are still a little too personal to share on here, maybe next time). For some reason, I found these two quotes to stick with me.
Ever since I was a little girl I knew what I didn’t want to become when I grow up and that stayed with me all throughout the years. That fear stayed with me, too. I have always found it hard to forgive especially when the person who wronged me isn’t even sorry and sleeps okay knowing that I’m – and the people around me – are hurt.
But I still don’t want to be that kind of person and I certainly don’t want to attract my fears. So maybe, just maybe – this is my way of slowly forgiving the things that has been done to me and the people close to me. I’m not quite there yet. But one thing for sure: I want a lighter heart.
It’s now 12:02 pm. I won’t be getting any more coffee and by 30 minutes I’ll get up and go to the office again. Wish me and feet luck! (They’re practically raw and red at this point)
P.S. I’ll link the tweets once I get home!
