My Weekend in LA

Hello Everyone,

Here are some pictures. The first three are actually taken in the plane when I arrived in SF from my year away from home. I woke up to that beautiful sunset and I had to pull out my camera.

Anyways, I was in LA for the weekend to do a beauty trade show: Expo Latina. It was so much fun. There were so many people there that didn't speak any English. It was so cool seeing all the different beauty products and collecting samples. I broke down and bought a ceramic flat iron for wholesale price. I also bought eyeliner powder for the exotic look that you see  on Arabic women and in the Bollywood movies.

In the pictures you can see the people I worked with. The guy was actually in the booth next to us promoting hairgel for the punk rocker look. He looked really mean at first but turned out to be a really nice guy. He tried to get all the girls to touch his hair.

We went to Disneyland on Saturday and there were so so so many people. The tickets cost $54 per person for the day. But it was so not worth it. That day there were 110,000 people in the park. I only got to go on three rides. The lines were so long, and I swear that we were standing in line to get to another line. And we also waited in line for a whole hour to get food. There were so many mothers with strollers. And my feet got bumped a lot by them. Don't mess with mothers on a mission. But even though the lines were long, we had fun. I managed to go on three rides: 1.) Star Wars simulation 2.) It's a Small World 3.) Pirates of the Carribean.

As for the job search, no one has called me back. They swore that they would call me back either way, but of course they never do. I learned that I have to be more agressive and play hard to get. I got some tips from my old boss and she told me that I should always send thank you letters after the interview and call back. I also have to let them know that I am looking for other jobs and play hard to get. She really have me some good tips and told me all the mistakes that I have been making. I really have a lot to learn.

I have been used to looking for temporary jobs as a waitress or retail to do while I was in school. This is a different ballgame. Looking for a career is kinda like dating and trying to find the right guy. Haha. Be agressive, make yourself interesting, don't show your bad qualities, play hard to get, close the deal.

Anyways, I better go now and try to work on landing that perfect job.

Wow those are from the plane??? They are great! Disneyland is like that. It pays to have the passes when you live close otherwise you want to stay and get your 54$$$ worth:o) Sounds like you had a great weekend. Hope a good job comes along real soon. D
