TGIF !

Hello My Little Minxes,

Happy Friday ! I could sure use a little break.

Just wanted to post a couple of updates..........

1.) Mr. Esq's office did not call me back. Right now, how it usually works is that a small firm like his is looking to hire right away, so I pretty much know that they are interviewing as fast as possible with the tons of responses they've got and I bet the new person already started.

I don't know the specific reason why. Could be anything from me not speaking better Spanish, to me not being able to start immediately. I did tell them that I have to give two weeks. No way am I burning a bridge with my current employer, especially now. But at least I can feel confident that I didn't blow the interview.

Also, there is so much stiff competition out there. Law firms and legal recruiters have not been immune to the ball-sucking economy so that means that tons of more qualified candidates have been dumped into the same pool as the newly certified paralegals such as Yours Truly, and we are all swimming upstream like salmon, jumping and hoping we get noticed.

Though a little disappointed, not all is lost. I did enjoy the interview and was glad to even have the experience. And I am just happy and I feel lucky to even have the job that I do. So no complaints here. One thing I don't like is when I hear people complain about their jobs. Especially when there are so many unemployed people who would do anything just to work.

2.) I got a massage yesterday. The best massage I've ever gotten. I needed that so bad. I had to wait a while for her to be available, but it was all worth it, and she was super nice. And I am going back next week.

Well, that is all for now my little expensive fur coats. Have a nice weekend. It should be raining here in the SF Bay, which is all the more reason for me to stay in, watch TV and eat junk food.

Besitos !

Sorry you didn't get the new job :(. My mom is still on her unemployment as well as Anna who worked at DD in Traffic. Things are really hard out there and it may effect me soon :(

I wish I could be lazy this weekend but I got a Physio test and paper next week :(. Let's hang out after those are done!

I hope she didn't use one of those "neck massager" devices ;-)

It's tough all over, which is why I think it's time I get my first REAL massage. It's a luxury I've been living without for too long.

Enjoy the movie and junk food and good luck with the job hunt!

weisst Du warum Du den job nicht bekommen hast? Weil Du einen Butt gemacht hast (und Butt ist nicht dasselbe as in English- Deine Oma hat dieses Wort oft benutzt ;) )
Aber ernsthaft, ich glaube nicht dass das der Grund war - du warst nur viel zu schoen und viel zu begabt fuer solchen dummen job.

Na und bald ist Dein Geburtstag, wir muessen uns treffen und feiern. Letztes Jahr war sehr nett.....
