I am feeling like a train wreck emotionally – I wish I had a solid reason why so I could stomp out the intrusion and get back to the happy place my pills I have had me in the past four months.
Part of me knows that it is because I still haven’t had any feedback regarding the agency interview I had last week. I did call on Tuesday to follow up, but there was nothing concrete. My nerves are starting to fray 😦 I have applied for a number of jobs in my field, particularly in Cape Town, but most of the replies are in the line of “thank you…we’ll keep your CV on file…preference to candidates residing in the area…” How am I ever supposed to grow in my field if I am not given the opportunity to in a bigger city? I have even volunteered my services for free to gain some more experience in certain areas I am lacking – still no luck. Oh well, I will just have to perservere won’t I?
Anyhow, on a happier note…
My folks twisted my arm yesterday to go with them to the casino and well, it was a profitable exercise! The folks gave me R200 each and with that money I made R2700 – and I gave the folks a thousand rand to split between them. It’s nice to have some cash in my wallet again.
Cousin Lara received an email yesterday confirming that she had won a competition – her prize…a bit part in the local soapie 7de Laan! The filming will take place early in April and screened in June. She is so excited! As the filming will take place during school holidays, the whole family will be going up to Gauteng. She has the 7de Laan cookbook, so I told her to take it along and ask the cast to autograph it for her.
After waiting for a week, dinner with Carmen and Ewan dawned last night. Pasta and wine and good company was just what I needed! I ate so much pasta, but it was so tasty I couldn’t stop 🙂 The hamster in my head is running around with a million recipes which I would love to cook for them when I return the favour.
Anyhow ‘ til later…
