Favorite place in the city

The autumn sun feels like a lightweight delicate cardigan, soft and soothing on your skin. The yellow paths are crunching under my favorite Reebok Royal’s with every step I take. The crunching of the crispy leaves is my dearest autumn melody.

The season is changing.

Change is beautiful. But what does it bring?

I’m soaking up the scrumptious wind that makes me think of roasted cinnamon pumpkin and warm cup of salep. I feel right at home under the orange canopy, relaxed, de-stressed. Leaves are abandoning their trees and finding their place on the ground. Piles of shades of yellow and orange are making me feel tempted to jump into them like they’re a big fluffy bean bag. Yellow bright sun rays are cutting their way through the yellow trees and leaving their light spread all over the ground.

A heavenly scene.

A dilemma

In the past 2 days I had 3 interview for the same job position, but in different hotels. I think all of the interviews went more than okay and now I’m left with a dilemma.

There are 2 hotels that I’m torn between. One of the hotels is a bit low key and I would only have to work second and third shifts. The pro for this one is that considering I’ll be just learning how to work the position that I’d be getting, it would be nice if I have more time to adapted before I jump into a more busy and popular place. But… I loved the other hotel. It’s right next to the city square, it’s very popular and the design of the place is amazing! But, I witnessed a bit of the work there and it seemed crazy busy. To be honest, it scared me a bit.

But even though it scares me, it also draws me to it. I don’t know why, but it makes me want to be right in the middle of everything.

Is it stupid to be drawn towards what scares you?

I have a lot to think about. I’m doubting my abilities and I’m afraid I wouldn’t be able to make it there.

Two weeks later ~ Every chance is a new lesson

It’s been two weeks since my last interview for a job a really wanted to get. I didn’t get a call back. Deep inside, I knew I wouldn’t, but I still yearned for it.

Never mind. This is just a start; a start of a fight for a better life. In a way, I like it. Of course I would like it to be easier than this, to get a chance sooner than later. But I like the hustle. I like the anticipation. Love the feeling of hope. Enjoy the spirit of resistance. Live for the challenge.

I had another interview this morning for a job I don’t really want, but was kinda curious about it. I rescheduled it for friday morning because I don’t have anything to wear. So, I have couple of days to buy few things and possibly get ready. I like the place where the job is, it’s very luxurious and it would be a nice place to work at. But, I hate the location, I don’t really feel safe there.

Anyway, I’ll be going to the interview just because I need the experience of being interviewed. I want to get perfectly comfortable at talking with influential people who can perhaps one day hire me.

Every chance is a new lesson.

Spark of light

After many months of applying for different types of job offers, I finally got a call back. And for a great job that I wasn’t expecting to be even considered.

I applied for receptionist in an awesome hotel even though I don’t have any experience with that position. I had my first job interview in the past 3 years. I was nervous, but it went okey. The pay is great, the position seems like you can progress on upper levels and the hotel location is amazing, really close to where I live, which means I’ll save money and time on going to work. Plus, you have a meal and one coffee break, which you don’t really get on other places.

I didn’t get the job, but I might be called back to get required training and if I do well while training, I might get the job. So far, it’s just a might situation. But, I’m really glad that I’ve got a call back considering I don’t have the right education, nor experience, nor a language diploma. I really thought that doesn’t happened in my country.

Oh, I want that job! I want it real bad!

I hope I’ll be lucky enough to get a call back.

I’ll be waiting.
