Okay Take Another Spin!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on October 16, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, on Wednesday I went to a job interview. It went great, they even had me do a couple of cold calls to see if I could do the job. It was and office for an Air-conditioning service, so they were looking for some one to call customers to see if they were looking to have their units cleaned and checked. Both gentlemen who interviewed me, said I did great, I was their favorite, they even gave me their business cards to call them back if I did not hear from them by Friday! Well, Friday came along and at 3:40 pm I called them up, since I had not had any word from them or the temporary service. One of them answered the phone, and said they were at that very time discussing who they would be hiring. Could I call back later at five pm or just after. Now, I know it is Friday and most offices close at five for starters. I also know that, this answer is not nearly as positive for me as things went at the original interview. To be honest, after being out of work so long, and being given the run around at least a hundred times already, I did not call.

The first reason I did not call, is technically, I think they were new to this temporary service thing. I am supposed to be contacted by the service about work, it is not only an etiquette thing, but a policy thing. They sent me to the interview, and they call me if I get hired. I did it the first time thinking I might get a warning, prior to starting work on Monday, to get things at home in order, and not have to be rushing around last minute getting things done to go to work.  Instead, I received yet another, blow off, a kind one ( thank you for that), but a blow off none the less. Needless to say they did not call me back either. Until Monday, when I am sure they will be notifying some one, unless they have already chosen and it is some one else. I have decided, not to take it personally, when the right employment comes along, I will get the job. Until then, this one was obviously meant for some one else.

I feel like I am trapped on a game show. There is a big wheel to spin, and all the slots are filled with jobs, some are for my artist gifts, some are self-employment work, some are office jobs, some pay a lot, some pay little, some are long hours, some just part time. One slot however, says “SORRY” and that slot means no job for you. Continually this man coaxes me, come on spin again, this is your lucky spin, so I spin and every time I get the SORRY, spot on the wheel. The rules are simple too, I can only leave when I get something other than SORRY. But, no matter how times I have spun that wheel so far, all I can get is SORRY. Now, the odds are stacked against this happening, and if there were any way to bet on it, I would be rich and not have to get a job. However this is not possible, and so I must keep spinning that wheel, like a really bad re-make of Groundhog Day, with no end in sight! Lots of love to you all, got plenty of work to do, hope you are having a wonderful weekend, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Crazy Days And Sleepy Nights!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Been so very busy the last few days! So much going on and nothing at the same time. As I mentioned the other day I worked a couple of banquets this week. One on Wednesday and another on Thursday! I was tore up tired, my neck and arm are still really bad, spent the last few nights, on a heating pad and ice packs. Plus, I have been nursing that abscessed tooth I mentioned earlier this week. It has been crazy for sure. I liked working the banquets, just wish my body was nicer to me, I mean I have to work. It just seems I get beat up so badly any more. It is a real catch 22. Wishing it was different doesn’t seem to help, it just gets worse and worse. This getting older thing is not much fun! I met a lot of really cool people and as is the norm these days, a couple of negative types as well. Too bad really, I am thinking they could be really fun to be with, if they could only lose those winy and bitchy attitudes.

I mean one of the women was a real no it all type. Here she is a temp working with a temp service. She not only asked how things were done at this business, she followed up by asking why they did not do it the way she was used to doing things. She just kept on and on about how many years she had been doing banquets, but how this place was doing it wrong. Nothing made sense to her. But the kicker is she knew she was making the supervisor mad, and in her reality, thought it was because she was asking questions. Not the fact that she was in reality questioning the supervisor, big difference as far as I can tell. She then was trying to recruit the rest of us to take sides. I guess, in her planet in those two days, she thought she would be able to pull off a mini mutiny on the bounty kind of thing! I found it all rather humorous. Of course if you know me at all, in person or through here, you may have figured out, that I find humor in all kinds of situations. So, she made the mistake of asking everyone at the table (we were polishing silverware at the time, which by the way she thought was the wrong way to do that activity as well), and everyone else seemed afraid to answer so I said “You know the way I figure it, everyone has their own way of doing things. I don’t care if they tell me to bend over and stick it up my rear, if I want paid, that is what I am going to do, no arguments from me!” Well, she shut up after that, since no one else came to her defense and every one laughed at my retort. Thinking maybe, I am not on her best friends list, oh well, to each his own.

Now of course, I really would shove silverware up my arss, not quite the word I used, but you get the point. But it is the principle, if it bugs you so much, go home! Otherwise shut it and do the job required! Tough words, but well understood, I would think in an economy, where finding work is not the easiest prospect. Anyway, that was my last two days, I will have to catch up with the rest of the weekend later. Sending all my love to you all, diana!/profile.php?id=100000810145663*

Almost Friday, A Sale Plus Updates On A Few Other Things!

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 22, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, I am so very happy it is almost Friday. Thrilled that the weekend is finally right at the door and ready to enjoy it. I am sure that seems weird, since I am not working outside the home. But, even with staying home the weekends always feel different than the other days. Not sure what it is, I don’t go out, nothing like that, but the days feel more fun to me. Must be a psychological thing, but it is true. Checked on the lottery last night now winner yet. So, tomorrow, I will be getting my picks for the next week, wish me lots of luck, need it ( not that you don’t, but I would do it for you)!Wishing you happy thoughts now, just for topping in.

I am working on a painting right now, no clues it will have to be a surprise this time. It just feels good to be playing with my paints again. I am feeling the crochet or sewing bug though, just not sure what I want to make. Maybe, I should replace the black lace vintage style gloves I sold earlier this week! That could be a good idea. Oh, and guess what, had another sale last night, but the best news is this one was on my Artfire account! This is the first sale in that store, all the others so far have been in ETSY. Now, if that will only get that account jump started I would be so very happy! Then, I just need to get my Zibbet account going, that is the store with the most hits, and I would be thrilled to see it take off as well. Wow, so keep your fingers crossed for me the weekend is here! I have high hopes for a profitable weekend!

Well, that is the latest on the most exciting news. I did get an e-mail back from AskDoctors about my little experience. Their advice to take a pregnancy test and get an appointment with a doctor. So, being broke really is the worst part about me. I do not have money for a pregnancy test and definitely do I have hundreds of dollars to spend at a doctor. So, for now, I will grin and bear it. Pray hard, and hope with a hope beyond hope, that I will stay healthy and all will be good! Love to you all, hoping your Thursday is as happy as you are, diana

Learning Efficient Sales Online, New Painting And Soul Rejuvination

Posted in Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , on July 15, 2010 by dianaswonderworks

Well, today is a new day, and full of new beginnings. I have mentioned my luck has been less than pleasant lately, and after much soul searching, and philosophical thinking, I think I am finally able to answer my own questions. Those little breaks from counseling everyone else gave me some time to reflect on myself for a change. The new light bulb moment, things I always knew before, but some how forgot, is it is me! I am not myself, and understood that, but I was spending all my time blaming everything around me for that change. Once I sat down and looked at it all, I realized some where along the way, I lost me and that is why my life is not what I want it to be. Life beat me into a corner and I started second guessing myself, and tried to do it the other people do it. But, that will never work for me, individuality is the creator of a unique life. By giving away my uniqueness, I got that crazy, stressful, meaningless life that so many others had. Thanks, but no thanks, I am done with that plan. I want my old crazy, but fun and exciting life back! So, I am putting myself back into my own therapy, and getting it right again. Being like other people is very over rated. For me originality with all its side ways glances, and snickers and even those snide remarks is still much more fulfilling. I feel so much happier in just a day, and so excited to get me back again, I liked me!

In other topics, currently I am reading a book on how to sell on Facebook. I keep falling asleep, not sure if it is me just revitalizing, with my new epiphany or if the write  just is not my speed. Some books make me sleepy, that is not to say it is a bad read, I actually find it interesting, so in a few days I should be able to decide what is causing the drowsiness.  I am happy to say, that I am working now on a picture or pictures of bull dogs for a calender idea for a group I am involved in, It may take a couple of days, but at least I can share my other painting I mentioned in earlier blogs. Hope you like it, it was tough cutting all those lines, but I think the end result is very much my style.

Tomorrow is the day I get lottery, I did not update you this week because the lady I purchased them from did my tickets wrong. There should have been numbers for Friday, Saturday, Tuesday and Wednesday. Unfortunately, I did not notice till I was home that she just gave me double numbers for Friday and Saturday. But, got to roll with the punches, so hopefully this week will be on track again, that lottery pot is getting quite large again! That would be so wonderful! Hoping you all had a wonderful week, and that your weekend is joyous and full of adventure! Drop me a line anytime, love to get feedback, and as always with love, diana
