Let down

Saturday, June 15, 2013

So I found out I will not be getting the intern after all. The professor messed up and the girl needs to be placed with a group of older children so she'll be with the three year old room instead. At least now I can continue my search for a new job. Of course I think that is absolutely pointless at this point.

I decided to do my little bit to help the wildlife sanctuary and picked up a few things at the store that they have on their wish list. I tried remembering the items that were marked most needed so I got bleach, baby food, and pumpkin. Maybe they have a place I could volunteer. It's almost my second home after all.

One of my coworkers is feeling alone and wants to start doing things with me and my husband. This could be helpful for me too. The four of us are going to a comedy show tonight. Forcing myself to be social.

I'm making potholder and dishcloth sets for a friend who is getting married in August. They are the same potholders I've been making for Etsy that my husband loves. Anyway they're camo and pink camo so they are perfect for the couple. I just have no idea if it's good enough for a wedding gift.

Time to get motivated to start the day.

    Nothing you want is ever pointless. Somethings just need extra or continued efforts to push through the 'wall' that's holding you back.

I think it'd be awesome for you to volunteer at the wildlife sanctuary. You might even ask for a task that will keep you walking, such as picking up trash or leading tours (if they do that). Volunteering does great things for us emotionally and physically.

Don't be so down on your potholders; they sound great. Sure, some people only want their family and friends to provide expensive items that they register for, but many couples will appreciate a hand-made gift that you put time and effort into. If you want to make it more personal, how about putting their names, or last name, on them. You could stitch on letters, or put on a special tag, or do it some other way. You could also consider choosing different colors that fit their personalities, so they're not the same as the ones you sell. Then wrap them nicely and include a note explaining that you made the potholders especially for your friend to celebrate them. If you personalize them, tell them how and why (why those colors, why that design, etc). I'm sure they'll appreciate your efforts. After all, anyone can spend 5 minutes grabbing an item off a list, but putting in time and effort to to make a personalized gift is heartwarming.

  Sorry you aren't getting the intern. It probably would have helped with some of your issues. Don't give up your job hunt. Good luck.
