Happy 4th of July !!!

Hello there my lovelies,

Well, I must say that its been quite a while since I've updated here. Wow.

Happy 4th of July to you all. I am staying home today. I could go out and watch the fireworks, but I don't feel like going downtown without makeup. I am gonna have Lasik on Friday and I am not allowed to wear makeup three days before. I am nervous about the procedure.

Well, y'all know that I want to work for Department of Homeland Security and work with people trying to immigrate here to the US. The process of getting a job is absolutely frustrating. I don't even know where to begin. I have applied to so many positions and the process of applying to each position is grueling. Not only do you have to read this long ass list of descriptions and requirements. I also have to answer a long questionaire, fax my resume AND other documents such as transcripts.

 I always get rejection letters saying that I'm not even qualified. Which I know is bullshit in some cases. For example, I applied to a secretarial position. I speak Spanish, have experience performing secretarial duties AND I have a degree in business. I was floored.

But lately, I got some letters saying that I am QUALIFIED, but that they selected others more qualified than I am and that they might consider me later. THAT is a step in the right direction. At least I got considered. I mean, normally I would have considered that rejection too and felt bad. But after all the "Sorry, you're not qualified" letters that have flooded my mailbox, I figure that things can only get better.

I am gonna keep doing all the grueling work. I feel like I am wasting my time. But I am gonna keep applying for these jobs, no matter how many times I get rejected. I am so overworked in my current job. There is no fucking way that I can continue to live like this. I mean, whats the worst that can happen ?

Right now I have a lot of debt and my paycheck mainly goes to paying off my debts because I don't earn that much. There has got to be a better way. And I just need to keep my head up and continue to think positive.

I sleep on an air matress. Ever since I came back from Spain a year ago and got a car and had other bills to pay a bed was not a high priority. But now I think it would be nice to sleep on a real bed. I looked around at different places and didn't realize how expensive a bed is. Maybe I can finally get one when my tax return comes in.

Anyways, I am gonna go for now. Ciao Ciao.

My daughter had lasix surgery last week and is so happy she did! By the very next morning her vision was 20/15.  You do have to follow your doctors list of things to do after and use those artificial tears for awhile! She gets busy and forgets and then needs them. I hope you get that job! You would do it well.

Dont let the rejection letters get to you I went through the same thing a while back.  Keep pushing no matter how tough you think it is getting.  I am sure you will get through soon. Good Luck.
