How to Job

So moving back to my home town means.......job hunting and not just me myself my best friend broke up with her boyfriend which I talked about it in my post Heartbreak (Go ahead and read it for some insight) but I dress up and look nice just to pick up an application for a job. So I thought I would give a little advice on how to present yourself when job hunting. Just remember this is my opinion and just a little advice it's not personal. I made my friend change shirts before she went into an interview I literally said to her and I quote
"You are not wearing that"
This is what I wore to work on time and
I just had a good pair of jeans on 
She just got off work at her family sandwich shop so she had a shirt that wasn't in the best of shape the appliqued letters were coming off (Morgan if you're reading this I love you and I'm sorry) So I went to my closet and picked out a nice shirt and handed it to her. Now there are 2 different ways to go to and 2 different ways to dress.
So for an application pick up here is my list of dos.

  1. Nice shirt (no holes no stains)
  2. Nice pants (no holes no stains)
  3. Look well groomed so guys are cleaned shaven girls have your hair under control 
Those are 3 easy things to do you don't have to be in dress pants and a dress shirt. I guess a way to put it is look like you are going on a first date. Not all places you need to wear dress pants and all I don't have a decent picture of a guy dressed up that would look nice.

Don't look like this
My don't list was pretty much already said look like you are going on a first date look nice. It only takes .2 seconds for a first impression. The other photo I have up is a don't sweatshirts are a no go if I was an employer I would not higher you. You want to look like you care to take pride in what you look like.

I know I sound harsh but that's life, life isn't going to hand you everything you want or need that's why it's important to work. I have Epilepsy as you peoples know some people won't hire me because of that they may say they aren't hiring me for a different reason or not give me one. It may be my insecurity to but when I have an interview I say "Hey I have Epilepsy" I know I don't have to tell them but I do.

I'm getting off subject kind of but confidence is one I know it's said a lot but it's true. Also eye contact not to much but not to little this is a little harder to figure out because you don't want to be to assertive but not to submissive. This is going to be a weird analogy but have an attitude like a dog when a dog is to dominate to another dominate dog they fight.

A submissive and submissive dog one tries to dominate the other you want to balance everything out so you aren't submissive and get dominated but don't be dominate and not see eye to eye with your future boss.

More Change....It's Good Though

I know I put it on my podcast but need to let my readers know I am enrolling in college, so I'm cutting back in some areas. My blog is my home and the first project that I have been neglecting horribly, and I apologize I use to use it as a safe place from my ex-husband and where my divorce is finally finalized as of September 19th, 2019. I don't really need a safe place anymore, but I still want to strive to help people, and I'm pretty sure I've said this before, but I need to work on myself before I can genuinely help someone else. Starting tomorrow, October 10th, 2019, my boyfriend and I are going to be working out as a couple. I'm excited because well, as cheesy as it sounds, this is a first for me. I'm making new frists with him; we are going to be Pikachu and Ash Ketchum for Halloween; it's another first for me as well. I've been so happy with my life lately; I almost forgot to keep my passion alive. I know that sounds weird, but it happens life

Mom Life

If you're a mom you might just ask yourself this question almost daily "Am I a bad mom" I know I do and I normally talk to my best friend or my boyfriend about it and why I feel that way. I always get told the same thing by both of them "NO you are not a bad mom you are doing what you can" That is one this every mom needs to remember you're no a bad mom if it's your first child no matter how old they are you're still learning. Every day is a new lesson. You're never truly are on your own when it comes to parenting even if it feels like it at times. As being a human you're constantly learning even if you don't realize it. Just because it's not a big lesson sometimes the smaller ones can be more of an impact than the big ones.  My toddler constantly tests my patience he tries to push me to my breaking point. I get mad but I have to take a deep breath. I know he doesn't understand but sometimes I think he knows exactly what he&#

I really don't know what I want this post to be about, I've talked about unplugging what I'm up to I just won't call writers' block. If  I were to do that though I personally feel like I'd be giving up, I've been racking my head on how to finish out this project I've been working on. I want to tell you, but it's a secret, and I can't wait until everything is done. I will tell you this project is suitable for everyone of any type. I know I've announced that I am now an ambassador for 2 companies, but they still have a couple things in common Craft 1816 and Just Strong. In case you haven't heard of these brands, Craft 1816 is a CBD oil company and is THC free Just Strong is a fitness clothing company based out of the UK. As far as I know from the other ambassadors I've met, they are just really into health or have a form of disability themselves. I haven't met someone with Epilepsy yet. Just Strong believes in mental and physic
