This week started off as if I was crouched in a runner’s start position and shot off when I heard the gun fire. Off and running I’ve been. Monday I worked about 12 hours straight, today just about 5. The afternoon was mine. Like I was on a different planet than last week. A good 48 hours.
I really like the copy writing/editing job I’ve been doing, it appeals to me. I like the content and how the materials have to have continuity, a little punch and lots of data for something fun and informative—corporate convention type thing.
I don’t think I’d like writing ad copy at all, I don’t want to be in advertising, but this seems like a good fit. I haven’t had too much feedback but have been given most of the documents to go over and more are coming. Friend/boss and the ones producing the event are in their own hell, because it’s way behind schedule due to various reasons. The material was all ready written and went through a first approval, so I’m unable to change too much, but my friend/boss all ready said she wishes she had brought me in sooner after she saw my first edit.
I’m willing that energy to continue as we go further, because I’d love to keep doing this type of thing. I don’t mind if its contract work. I can be sitting here quietly and then something needs to be done and I do it. They’re keeping me fairly busy with other stuff; apparently the week we assemble and mail the packets will be intense. But fun I’m sure, wink.
I wrote an article for the newsite yesterday afternoon and last night. It came out well, but I was struggling, I had interviewed the woman the night before and had to turn it in last night. That’s a rush for me. I loved the content so that helped.
And yesterday around 5, my recruiter called and asked me about a job, then asked if I could interview this morning at nine for it. Part-time, 2 ½ months, accounts payable work, pay not too hideous, not too far from here. Of course I said yes, so after I sent the article off at about 9:30, I washed my hair (my hair does better washed the night before unless I have literally hours to play with it) and got on the company’s website and studied for a while.
I enjoyed the interview. The energy was good between us; I spoke with the controller for over an hour and the AP person about 20 minutes. I think the hardest thing is trying to fit the pieces of a 2 part-time-temporary-jobs jigsaw puzzle together. I’m hoping that doesn’t scare them off. There’s an enormous part-time world out there; I’d like if I could make it work for me, I know I can. But can they? They were supposedly interviewing others this afternoon; time will tell.
I’m taking it as it comes and giving it my all. I enjoyed meeting and talking with the people at the interview, I like the job they proposed and if it doesn’t work out, I’ll let it go and move on.
On another note, I’ve discovered if I use frozen spinach in my green smoothies, they’re much greener because I guess I use more than fresh and the consistency is so yummy. I’ve been flooding myself with chlorophyll. I thought I was getting sick on Sunday night, but seemed to have crushed it for now. Me and Popeye.
