I couldn't help it and I started trolling jobs again.

I might have an addiction to looking for jobs.  I was looking for a night gig- a waitressing job or something to supplement my income and help me pay off my bills, and then I found a gig at a plastic surgeon's office and I couldn't help it- I had to apply.  Well!  I've got an interview in an hour.  I'm beyond ecstatic.  I am trying to keep myself calm and remember- it's just an interview and I'm trying not to let my hopes get too high.  But the chick told me on the phone that I will "love working here, it's so much fun" and that is basically what did me in.

I've researched the position and the website and all of the procedures he offers (the doctor), and I feel really good about working there (if I get the job).  I would have benefits again.  I would have a normal schedule with weekends off.  If I really wanted to be ambitious, I could go get a side job at massage envy or even stay at the chiropractor's office on the weekends for awhile to help me make extra $$ to pay off my bills...if I wanted to.  I wonder if the girls that work there get free facials and treatments and stuff. How exciting?  I mean REALLY!?  Why am I so in love with the beauty/aesthetic industry?  I think most of the machines are crap- I think most women who get a lot of work done look plastic...and yet I cannot stay away from it.  It's another addiction, I swear.

I hope this is it; I really, really do.  My resume is starting to look shot- I've had 3 jobs in the last 3 years I've lived here.  In my defense, 2 out of the 3 I took because I needed a job- so of course, 2 days into the job I started looking.  I'm not one of those people that can continue going to work despite hating it- if I hate it, I start looking.  ALWAYS LOOKING.  I was talking to someone about this the other day and she made me take a personality test and sure enough- according to the test, I'm the type of person that changes my mind often and tries a bunch of different things.  I also get bored easily.  Surprise.  I'm already bored typing about all of this.  My point is- I need to find something I love so I can stick with it.  I've wanted to work in marketing for a plastic surgeon's office since I got here- and now hopefully I might get that chance. ;)

I'm in a really good mood right now.  I'm hopeful.  All morning I was busy plotting my new life and strategy and it was totally nice to be distracted from the hairy, stinky men I had to keep massaging.

And now I've got to go!




  1. Good luck on the interview! Sounds great.

  2. OMG - can you freaking imagine the fringe benefits there??? YOU GO GIRL!

  3. So happy for you, Diz. I hope the interview goes well. I will be keeping you in my thoughts.

  4. Good luck! Could you leave the last job off your resume? Seriously you hardly worked there! And I think a job with BENEFITS is worth it.
