    It's just after 11 here.  It is kind of late for me to stay up (I'm lame and usually go to bed by 10:30 on work nights) but tomorrow is Friday so I don't care if I'm tired at work.  Plus, we have a wireless router so I can Knot from bed. haha.

    I have work EARLY tomorrow, so I shouldn't be staying up this late either (it's after midnight). With that in mind, I need sleepness.

    Night night!!

    I don't want to hijack you ladies' conversation, but I just wanted to say:

    Interviews are the absolute worst. I too have been through about 6 this year, and have hit both the overqualified and underqualified positions, finally landing one that I am grossly overqualified for but has a lot of growth opportunity. It can be so discouraging, and I would imagine even more so when you ladies have been working SO HARD in school. I will keep my fingers and toes crossed for you, pray for you, do a happy dance for you, and whatever else I can think of that might send good vibes for your job hunt, Manwa (and you too Brooke, because I know you recently had interviews too!)

    Hang in there!

    Yayyy!! Thanks, Trix =)

    Bdulli, I KNOW RIGHT?? It's like "Surely you would want someone who you didn't have to train extensively, right?"

    I understand the whole "we don't want a lot of turnover" thing, but that only applies, I think, in an economy where jobs are being handed out like candy. Not in an economy where it's like "I need a JOB. I have student loans. I'm living in an expensive county. I don't give a crap right now if I'm a little 'bored' at work. It's paying the bills and that's where I need to be right now."

    But that just sounds desperate in interviews.

    That is exactly how I felt.

    When I went on the interview for this place (it's a just-above-entry-level position), they were desperate for someone who had any kind of common sense, and I used that to my advantage. I was very clear that while I want to stay with the company, I do have aspirations to move up within and they could see that from my resume because that is what I did at every other job I have had. But I didn't hold back either. I was like look, I am getting married in a year, my rent just got jacked up, and I am working crap hours for 10 bucks an hour. I will do whatever you want, for whatever hours you need me, as long as you pay me and give me insurance (obv. I said it more professionally but you get the idea). It sold them.

    Trying to find the balance between showing them you really need the job and will be dedicated to the company and the work no matter how boring, and showing them you want to grow with THEIR business is the key (whether you mean it or not). It is tough to do though. Your job will come. I know it is so stressful (and in retrospect, if I had any inkling FI was going to propose I never would have left engineering, where I was making literally twice what I get paid now) when you're trying to figure out how to pay for life as an adult, but it will happen. It will. And you have to tell yourself that every single day, or it will eat you up.

    Bdulli, can I just say that you're one of the nicest people I have ever encountered and your level-headedness is astounding? Cause it is.

    That's all =)

    Awww thank you, that's so sweet!

    Remind me of that in ohhh... eight months or so when I am crying to you ladies over the color of the napkins or some other stupid thing ;-)

    Seriously, just know it will all work out one way or another. I think I speak for all the ladies here, both the regs and us newbs, when I say we are all here for you to vent!

    Lol. I'm letting my mom do the crying over the napkin color things. It's really her party anyway (I'm speaking of my marriage blessing and reception in May for all the family people) and it's become a huge family reunion type thing (my uncle is inviting people without asking us, etc.) So I figure she can sweat the details she's paying for anyway.

    LOL I am SO GLAD I am not the only person who is doing that! IMO, I am just as married at the end of that day with or without that big party, but my mom would be heartbroken (only daughter of four kids, first grandchild of her mom to get married, etc.) It's about 120 family members and 20 friends invited, she has picked the place, etc. But somehow I got stuck with all the detail planning. Clearly you were smarter than me and just handed off the drama. I am going to spend the next month trying to do the same! Everyone thought I was crazy to let her pick the place... I think I am crazy for not letting her pick everything else too.

    I just want to show up and be married to my love. That is all I require.
