On The Prowl…

So, I’m on the prowl, again…

I’m job searching! I have been looking for clerical/office type jobs like working as a receptionist at an upscale car dealership, and a bunch of other stuff. I have no clue where I am supposed to be right now. I know that my best talent is writing, not that I’m rockin’ the socks off WordPress or anything, but for example, I always got Distinguished ratings on writing portfolios in school etc… Then again, on the other hand, I have been out of college since 2007, so my grammar skills aren’t exactly up to par. I know that I could use the APA guide or whatever to help. I am great at following examples and applying what I learn rather quickly. BUT… Where do I belong?

I am also a very personable/people person. I’m a former psychology major and have always been fascinated by the human mind and study of behavior. I’ve been told by many others, including persons of higher positions like educators that I’m quite charismatic and a true leader. I always was-up until my first manic episode and the diagnosis of Bipolar disorder. For example, I led the high school marching band as drum major/field commander for 3 out of my 4 years of high school. I’ve always loved music as well and played first chair clarinet in the musical orchestra, concert band, and pep band. I’ve been experimenting with guitar once again, however I cannot sing. I would love to be able to express myself in song with voice-belt it out like a true diva, lol! I think I will just keep my eyes straight ahead though, and work with my true talents and great capabilities that are definitely there.

If I am called in for an interview at this fancy dealership, I’m going to have to get a French manicure, possibly pedicure, and most definitely an all-over hair color to cover up all the gray from a stressful 5 years. Also, my current wardrobe basically just consists of various T-Shirts, what I would call active-wear or workout capris and soft pants. I have a couple pairs of jeans as well as denim shorts. I seldom wear these though because I feel restricted in them. I never really truly dress up and put my makeup on or straighten my hair unless I go to a medical appointment or Church. This would definitely be a huge change for me. I want to feel pretty again, and I really want to feel intelligent, and as if I am living out my true potential in the work force (Keep in mind that I know that my worth is far beyond this).

I remember what its like to feel beautiful, and get all kinds of attention, especially when walking down the street going home from college, lol. I want to be that again! For me. I want to be my best self, so I am getting ready to go for my 3 mile morning walk. Sunscreen on…Sexy, here I come!

Job, I am working on you!

Y’all have a great day!
