“Sometimes I feel like throwing my hands up in the air
I know I can count on you
Sometimes I feel like saying “Lord I just don’t care”
But you’ve got the love I need To see me through” -Florence & the Machine
You know, sometimes you just have to try to make things work for yourself. It’s the whole “grab life by the horns” motto. And well, I did that. My plan was buy a one way ticket to New York, get a job asap, meet people, and eventually become a true New Yorker. But life has tends to make its own plans. Now I’ve only been here for about three weeks now but I’m still currently residing in the unemployment line. Clearly, I didn’t want that and it’s not like I haven’t been trying. It’s just that a lot of times you have to wait on someone, which frankly sucks. That doesn’t mean you get to quit. So instead of me waiting around for a phone call from a manager who offered me a job unofficially, I went looking for more options. And who would have guessed that my timing could be more than impeccable when I ran into the hiring manager at Baker’s and wants me to go for an interview tomorrow. I haven’t secured the job, but it just goes to show that you’ve got to put in a little work to accomplish what you want. It also helps when the big guy in the clouds has the love.
